More power is on the menu: From 592 to around 800.
It took six months to get the EPA paperwork to make it street-legal.
It will have to go back to Europe eventually.
APR is a very-well known after-market tuner especially if you own a Volkswagen, Audi, or Porsche. Since the mid- to late 90s, they’ve engineered everything from ECU upgrades for more power, to exhaust and braking system and everything in between. Their immense success has enabled them to not only build an impressive facility in Alabama but it’s given them the means to get ahead of the competition. Late last year, they purchased an all-new Audi RS 6 and they’re working on it now.
APR’s experience getting a new-generation C8 Audi RS 6 to the US from Europe has proven to be a lengthy procedure. Last December, they ordered a fully-loaded example of one of the hottest wagons money can buy and it finally arrived last week. APR has many calibration and hardware engineers and the necessary dynos to test everything out, and they will.
Already, APR’s done a few physical changes by adding some red highlights upfront and a few select decals as well as an APR badge on the rear. As they specify on one of their Facebook video, the car won’t “stay stock for long.”
We’re very much looking forward to seeing what APR does with the car.
