Watch the APR B8 S4 Hit a New World Record

abt-b8-s4

World Records don’t get set every day.

So it’s pretty big news when the team at APR sets one.

The record is for the fastest B8 S4 3.0 TFSI and it was recently set with an 11.1@121.5 MPH in the quarter mile. And to make it that much more impressive, it was done with 4,200 ft Density Altitude.

APR brought their S4 equipped with a Magnuson TVS1740 Supercharger System (with an APR prototype pulley) out to Montgomery Motorsport Park in Alabama and set the time, rolling on Michelin PSS tires.

“Given the extremely poor conditions (4200ft DA) our 11.1 second pass will hopefully lead to a 10 second pass as conditions improve here in Alabama. S Tronic calibration improvements, additional hardware changes (removing the catalysts), and further refinement of the overall package will only push the platform to a place we’ve all wanted it to go.” Said Eric Urness, lead calibrator at APR.
