APR Stage 3 GTX Golf R runs an 11.5@116 1/4 mile on street tires
Very, very impressive results here for an APR Stage 3 Golf R. This car features a fully production APR Stage 3 GTX turbo kit
on a full weight MKVI Volkswagen Golf R with street tires. This car would have no problem repeating this performance on the street just as easily as it did on the street. That means from a stoplight it is going to be tough to beat as the 11.5@116 1/4 mile time suggests. That is with 93 octane pump gas by the way.
The question is what transmission is the Golf R using? As this run was done in Australia the car could either be a DSG or a manual (USA only gets manual). Considering the elapsed time, VWBoost leans toward thinking this is a dual clutch car.
Regardless, very impressive runs. Check out the video below.
