APR has created a custom-tuned VW Atlas featuring more horsepower and greater off-road capabilities
Opelika, Ala. (August, 2018) – APR, the leader in Volkswagen and Audi tuning, has built a one-off custom Atlas featuring more horsepower, improved braking and greater off-road capabilities.
The custom-built Atlas is equipped with a 2.0 TSI engine and an all-wheel-drive, making it the perfect off-road test bed for APR’s lineup of performance hardware and software. The project started life at 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, but APR’s engineers were able to increase output to 350 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. This was made possible by installing a factory IS38 turbocharger from the VW Golf R along with APR’s ECU Upgrade, Carbon Fiber Intake System, Cast Race DP Exhaust System, Turbo Inlet Pipe, Turbo Muffler Delete, and a custom fabricated Catback Exhaust System. In addition to the powertrain modifications APR installed its 6-piston 350mm Performance Brake Upgrade to bring the SUV to a commanding stop.
“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work on this project to bring the Atlas 2.0T to the next level,” said Mitch Williams, CEO …

The APR Open Carbon Fiber Intake System is the ultimate intake system for the 3.0 TFSI. The factory system is dramatically undersized, creating a power robbing inlet restriction that’s ever-so apparent at higher horsepower levels. To address this, we’ve done away with the airbox completely and created a new drop-in open system that literally installs in minutes. Our beautiful carbon fiber air-dam directs air into our massively oversized 7” filter with frontal inlet, and includes a thick T304 Stainless-Steel heat shield and air buffer-gap on the back of the carbon fiber shell to reject heat from the engine bay. The 4” inlet is compatible with the factory inlet, or the upgraded APR Ultracharger System, and creates an uninterrupted airflow path into the supercharger for maximum results. Read More!
APR has raised the bar once again, resulting in a new record for the 2.5 TFSI EVO platform. An exciting 9.722 second quarter mile elapsed time was achieved at Montgomery Raceway Park on July 16th, 2018 and backed up with five 9.7 second passes. Many may recall this is the same vehicle that was the first RS3 into the 9’s, owned by Keith Brantley. Results were achieved using a new hybrid turbocharger and various upcoming APR hardware modifications on an unopened stock engine long-block and transmission, in a density altitude of roughly 3,000 FT.
Keith’s vehicle setup and modifications were as follows:
