APR Announces a New Partnership with Motul as APR’s Official Supplier of Premium Lubricants


APR Motorsport began testing the Motul lineup of premium fluids and lubricants in 2007 on the then new APR Motorsport VW GTIs. The vehicles underwent years of brutal endurance testing through professional motorsport racing in both GRAND-AM and SCCA World Challenge series. After initial success on the circuit, APR’s testing extended beyond the track to daily use in moderately to extremely modified APR employee and R&D vehicles. The Motul line of products stood up to APR’s rigid five year testing regimen and the decision was made to certify Motul as the Official Lubricant of APR.


Much of Motul’s success can be attributed to their passion for development of premium lubricants designed specifically for high stress endurance racing. This approach is shared by APR through the development of their own product line with APR Motorsport’s racing efforts across several vehicle platforms and racing series. From MotoGP to Le Mans Prototype Racing programs, Motul’s motorsport development has yielded years of performance data, solidifying their position at the forefront of technological advancements unmatched in the industry. Motul’s products are designed to protect, clean and deliver consistent results, from daily driving to the highest stress environments, and APR Motorsport has proven this to be true for half a decade.


Motul will continue to provide all vehicle fluids and lubricants to APR’s racing efforts in GRAND-AM and other series with the APR Audi R8 in the Rolex Sports Car Series and in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge with the APR Audi S4, 3 VW GLI’s and 2 VW GTI’s. Motul’s products will be distributed through APR’s US dealer network and through APR’s website. As a further value add to APR’s world famous Turbo and Supercharger Systems, APR will include Motul oil and coolant to further Enhance the Driving Experience with the best fluid and lubricants on the market.


Motul’s uncompromising fluid and lubricant solutions are designed for nearly all modern VAG vehicles whether it’s dedicated to the track or daily driven on the street. Choosing the correct fluid and lubricant is as easy as following APR’s recommended guide or by calling an APR representative for further assistance.
