APR Unveils 536HP VW Golf RLMS

By SEMA Editors

Volkswagen and Audi tuning company APR pulled the cover off of its all-wheel-drive VW Golf RLMS–a Borg Warner turbocharged hatch that generates 536 hp, which is 244 more horsepower than stock. By nearly doubling the horsepower of the stock 2018 VW Golf R, the APR Golf RLMS provides racecar-like acceleration and performance for the road.

Initially designed for the SEMA Show, the APR VW Golf RLMS will travel around the country participating in track days and demonstrating what a heavily modified APR vehicle can accomplish.

Included with the turbocharger system is APR’s Stage III+ ECU upgrade, upgraded injectors and fuel pump, APR Race DP, carbon-fiber intake system, intercooler and more. With over a year and a half of initial development, APR has created a system capable of 10-second quarter-mile passes and 0–140 mph sprints 15 seconds quicker than a stock Golf R.

The extensive modifications continue with APR Roll-Control Racing Coilover System, Roll-Control Stabilizer Bars, a custom APR exhaust and custom two-piece APR wheels wrapped in Toyo Tires. To ensure occupant safety during high-performance driving, a custom roll cage has been integrated into the RLMS in addition to OMP racing harnesses and a fire extinguisher system.
