Domination from Down Under. The APR Golf R Destroys the Competition in the Motor Hot

Click here for the Interactive Magazine Format

Each year Motor Magazine in Australia hosts the biggest Hot Tuner challenge of the year.

The field consists of 30 cars ranging from mild to wild local, euro and Japanese cars.



Rules

1. The challenge is broken down to three distinct groups based on vehicle prices at the dealership. The Golf R falls into the Under $75,000 category.

2. Each event has one pro driver driving all of the vehicles to level the playing field and focus on the vehicles capabilities.

3. Fuel is controlled. Each vehicle gets the same 98 RON Fuel (Similar to US 93 (R+M)/2 Fuel).

4. Each vehicle gets the same set of tires.

5. Once the vehicle enters the gates, it may not be changed. This means no ECU changes. No engine changes. No tire changes. No handling changes. The car must be run in the same configuration, and not setup differently for each test.

Scoring

Scoring is baed on points. The top 5 vehicles have a weighted point range. (50, 45, 40, 36, 32, 30 followed by single digit decreases per position).

Test

Sydney's drag way is used for acceleration and braking tests.



A Mainline Dyno is used for power measurements.



A track test on SMSP's South Circuit (a technical track filled with elevation changes, fast/slow, on/off camber corners).



Finally a figure eight loop is used to test maximum agility.



The Competition

The Results

Track Data







Figure 8 Data



Acceleration Data

0 to 100 km/h



0 to 400 M



Braking Data

100 to 0 km/h



Dyno Data

KW at the wheels (FWD, RWD and AWD)



So after all of this you can see the APR Golf R was up against some extremely high horsepower vehicles! But none the lest, they held their own and dominated in many categories. In the end the winner was APR.



Here's what the Magazine had to say about the APR Golf R and APR Australia!







If you haven't heard about this vehicle before, it's one to watch for sure. Currently you can find it daily driven around the streets of Australia, on the track, or setting 10 second quarter miles times at the drag strip.



Go APR!

Here's how it stacked up against the $75,000 to $150,000 vehicle range.

In the 0-100 km/h it was still first place.



In the 0-400 M it was tied for second place with a KPM / Elite GTS and beat by a KPM GTE.



On the Circuit Lap time it came in 3rd place behind the Harrop Z06 and DNA Performance APR Supercharged Audi S5.



On the Figure 8, it was second, behind the DNA Performance APR Supercharged Audi S5.



DNA Performances APR Stage III Supercharged Audi S5 won the 75K-150K competition.
