• APR sets B7 RS4 1/4 mile record with their supercharger kit - 11.8@122

      First, congratulations to APR. They set a new 1/4 mile record for the B7 RS4 using their supercharger kit. The car ran 11.838 @ 122.41 on pump gas, 93 octane. Even more impressive is it was done on the stock exhaust, on the stock wheels, with the stock street tires. The rear seats were pulled but other than the SC basically a stock car on pump gas. Weather was in the 70's so not even favorable conditions. This has more in it, once again, congratulations APR.

        Saw this on their blog, even with their first run they've already set the world record. Then they really topped it off with this. It's pretty impressive trap for a 3.0l supercharged. wonder the boost on that

        This is a B7 RS4 w/ 4.2 L V8 N/A which they supercharged. You are thinking of B8 S4.

        And congrats!!! so good to see that car finally make power and hit some good 1/4 e.t and traps!

        Exactly, and with a full exhaust, race gas, and better weather this thing may hit 125 traps at which point it should be taken very seriously.

        This is a great achievement for them props. An RS4 with this blower would be a lot of fun.

        this would completely change the car, AWD and good throttle response is a blast, especially coming out of corners.

        Most but not all awd cars have turbos and lag....subi, evo, 997tt etc...so this is awesome. Want to see more

        It's a direct injected motor at 12.5:1 compression with a rather small base. Also, it's a positive displacement blower which is tough to tune. They managed to package it under the tight space under the hood as well. APR did a great job.

        This is great to see! I am a huge fan of the rs4 and nice to see it finally making the power it should have received from the factory.

        With this kind of blower on the RS4 and all that torque it has to be a blast to drive.

        Damn $19k is tough to swallow for that kit...

        I would consider picking up an RS4 if the kit was around $12-14k, but $19k is a tad pricey.

        For $19k I hope they offer some kind of financing as if it's cash that is more than 90% put down on the car.

        APR put the video up of the Stage III Supercharged RS4 making it's record 11.8 @ 122 mph 1/4 mile pass. Additional details on the run are that the car had an aftermarket racing clutch and a coilover suspension system. Density Altitude for the pass was up around 1000 feet and the vehicle weight with driver was 4014 pounds. Congratulations again to APR!
