After months of additional testing, APR is pleased to announce the Stage III+ TVS1740 Supercharger System is fully compatible with the R-Tronic transmission. So, to honor this occasion, we made a video of a couple R8′s doing ridiculous burnouts, drifts, and racing side by side, 6MT vs R-Tronic.
In the factory form, Audi’s high revving FSI V8 can leave much to be desired compared to some of the latest technological advances brought forth by Quattro GmbH in recent years. The APR Stage III+ TVS1740 Supercharger System fills the void by adding an average of roughly 46% more horsepower and torque across the entire power band. The results are nothing short of amazing; taking the R8 from 425 horsepower to 642 horsepower on pump fuel and 689 horsepower on race fuel without breaking a sweat! With 550 FT-LBS on tap thanks to the TVS1740′s positive displacement supercharger expect instant acceleration with absolutely no lag commonly associated with other forms of forced induction.
