TOTAL AUCTION STEAL! 850 HP APR Built Audi RS7 Hiding $30,000 In Mods! We Tested 0-60 MPH!

May 30, 2021
Let's pull this out and see exactly what we can find Oh, turning them all over, is there a somewhat reliable performance Audi model? Wow, we were grabbing all four tires, that's 60 hatchbacks, man oh man, I love a good hatchback. I love how usable they are. and this is my turbo Trans Am, all loaded up for a camping trip, which is a

ly normal and I've never done this before, but apparently this. It means getting those wheels off the ground Now, when I bought my p85d Model S, the fact that it was a big four door hatch was huge for me.

Now I have a big car that I can throw a lot of trash into whenever I want. I wanted it but the Tesla as much as I like it has its limitations which most people would say is the range but as someone who understands my daily commute it's not the range for me it's the fact that it actually I can't modify that car to get even better performance. which has, but you know, a big 4 door hatch that you can modify to ridiculous levels of performance and the Audi rs7 and this one specifically is heavily modified, it has over 800 horsepower, it easily runs a 10 second quarter mile medium to low and this was a sweet

auction

fine that sold for about what a regular one sells for and the hatch is huge you can fit like a baby horse back here or if you're from Chicago or New York a baby horse equals approximately eight and five feet.

total auction steal 850 hp apr built audi rs7 hiding 30 000 in mods we tested 0 60 mph...

Ten Italian guys liked it, so like I said, this 2016 RS 7 just came off the

auction

block and my guy Frank from Mancuso Motorsports called me right away. This is the same spot that had that supercharged East 63 from a couple of videos ago. The cool thing about this car is that its performance

mods

are a bit mysterious and we think it might have been a bit of a beta test car for APR now of course I'm sure the previous owner, someone who knows something about this car , he will comment. Below we will try to find out exactly what has been done to this car.
total auction steal 850 hp apr built audi rs7 hiding 30 000 in mods we tested 0 60 mph
I have a little bit of information the guys were able to get from APR, but basically there's a very good chance this is a low 10 second car. In particular, it could have dipped into the nines with the amount of power it has, so in this video we'll drive this car, explore what exactly was done to this car, and of course, I'll go over exactly what they paid for it at auction and about why they will sell it too, but first check out how amazing factory style shop repair manuals are for Audis. Now I get one of these for every car I own, so all my Mercedes, all my American stuff and they're fantastic, they're only like twenty bucks and they're available for pretty much any car out there, so I'll definitely leave a link below, but sometimes I slip into auto repairs and cars that aren't even my own, so in this case I was wondering how difficult it would be to remove and install the engine mounts on an RS seven and take a look at these instructions.
total auction steal 850 hp apr built audi rs7 hiding 30 000 in mods we tested 0 60 mph
They give you color images. They literally have arrows pointing to each bolt that needs to be. was removed so the step by step instructions take no guesswork and if there is a part of the instructions you don't understand they give you a little subcategory. Click on it, in this case how to remove and install the driveshaft and they will show you exactly how to do it. do it so of course you get all the torque specs they tell you about any special tools you may need and this is the best money you will ever spend at the garage so I hope this really helps you.
See the link below and by the way, making engine mounts and an RS seven is a total nightmare, you have to remove the entire front subframe, not a fun job at all, let's go straight to the hatch, the area I liked so much about this car because we have a rear tank. Here and this is not something you normally see on a car like this, a lot of these just have a tune and that's it, and this one has a water and methanol injection tank, so before we drive this we have to check if there's something in here cuz this just came off the auction it may have been sitting for a while who really knows and let's see yeah you can I know it's hard to say but there's some liquid in here and oh yeah it smells to 100% methanol, so some people use a washer fluid or mixture that smells very strong, it smells like methanol to me.
I have it in the Trans Am, so it's pretty serious stuff and something else we learned is that it has both fuel pumps. It was also updated on the car, which is not a common modification you see on typical RS7 tunes or even downpipes. Obviously this rs7 is wrapped and I personally don't like matte or flat wraps but it looks like a pretty good job and the wheels on this car are huge, they are 21 inch HR. I looked them up, they're about $2,500 each and they're wrapped in what looks like the new Michelin Pilot Sport, so you're looking at about $12,000 or so worth of wheels and tires on this car, which is crazy now the brakes look new too and something you guys will notice these are not carbon ceramic this is not the high performance rs7 this is the normal one but these are a wavy rotor design so if you see here this little dip and then it goes all the way around the rotor which is called a design rotor wavy design that comes from motorcycles and the time Audi started implementing them on performance cars was, I think, around the time they bought Ducati, so with a wavy design rotor this helps with the weight I think they weigh about nine pounds less or so than a factory rotor that would be about the same size and they dissipate more heat, that's the idea and you'll see a lot of this performance easily. wavy rotors, huge, cool brakes on this car, again, they're not carbon ceramics, but I think they'll work fine for the 99.9 percent of people who drive one of these things under the hood of these first-gen RS 7s It is an incredible direct experience. -Four liter twin turbo V8 with injection and there are a couple of different versions for this car, there is a regular RS 7 like this and then there is a high performance version, believe it or not, which gives you an extra 45 horsepower through with slightly larger turbochargers. some ECU adjustments.
I think there are some improvements to the cooling and a few other things like that, but this car has all that updated and more, it's going to make a lot more power than even the high performance version of our s7, so let's take a look at what we've got . It can be found under the hood because, again, it's like a mystery auction car that was sold at the auction and was only mentioned as having general performance modifications, so they didn't specify anything, probably because they didn't know exactly what. was done to this car and that's why it was traded to a normal dealership because god knows what.
I don't know what this person bought but it amazes me that enthusiasts and modified enthusiast cars like this just trade in at the dealership where that actually D values ​​the car even more than when he sells it privately so a dealer you don't want to hear anything about modifications, i.e. a factory dealer, so let's pull this out and see exactly what we can find and in a second, okay. pretty easy and from the beginning we can see that they did something with the air intake tubes. Now this is not factory. Some would say this is sucking in a lot of hot air, but with the injection of methanol and the fact that it has a really good effect. water terror intercooler system I don't think that's going to make any difference, but I immediately see that we have some things going on here, so this is some kind of sensor that's not exactly sure what's possible with the fuel, and look this, I have this exact one on my turbo Trans Am, so this is a blow off valve bother sale, so this is for a boost controller, so it's going to go to a boost source, it's got a little inlet here and then right here. it has a tile wastegate so this is not a bleed valve like you might think it has a line that goes here as a boost reference and that will dictate how much boost these turbos pump out so we have another one right here and as you I can see that the rod here is connected to the turbocharger, so we have different wastegates on this car, we have a wastegate controller, a boost controller on this car, we have some end fittings here with some braided lines of steel and I'm going to assume that has something to do with the fuel system, so it has an upgraded low and high pressure pump, it's direct injected, incredible fuel pressures, but it has upgraded pumps, it's a great modification when you have a car like this, most of these.
The cars only have a stage one or two tune, maybe they made the downpipes, but once you start diving into the system modifications you're getting serious, so speaking of downpipes, we can tell right away that it has downpipes. aftermarket, so here are the turbochargers. which we found out we've improved, so they'll look basically the same on the outside, but the internals have been modified, so it'll probably have a larger turbine wheel on the exhaust side, a billet compressor wheel on the intake or cold side and I'm going to assume these are catless downpipes which is what most people use and they are coated so they are very expensive which is why this car cost $60,000 and some change at the dealer's auction and then with fees and shipping it came out to about sixty-three grand. dollars now, if you guys aren't familiar with the pricing of our S7, don't worry, neither am I, but that's basically what you're looking for with a stock.
This one only has 42,000 miles on it, it's a 2016, so it's not very old at this point. I don't know the exact price because they just put it up there, but when I upload this video I'll leave a link below if you want to see it before it goes up in a few. days will be priced like that supercharged East 63. I think it's an amazing deal because it's probably about twenty-five to thirty thousand dollars worth of well done

mods

and it appears to be in very, very good condition, so anyway guys, let's go try this out and first let's see how it sounds compared to which I think is an original one, it's obviously very loud but when it's sitting here and idling it's really not bad, it's basically original and that's probably because it appears to have the factory mufflers so I think the rest of the Exhaust has been changed, but with the factory muffler, that makes a lot of sense, let's go for a ride, okay, the engine is already warmed up, my first ride in the RS7, oh.
I'm going to try a little roller here open road guys we broke traction this is all wheel drive it broke traction at about 5000 rpm but it stays where you want it oh man this thing is wicked it's so different than a lot others. In cars I'm used to my big turbo v8 Trans Am with a turbo and an automatic with a big stall converter so it's instantaneous and then obviously my e55, my c63 and the supercharged one will hang for a second, she says, Almighty God, how is this? Even when doing that, it shifts at like 7500 rpm.
Wow, this is very different though especially compared to the supercharged e63 I drove a couple of weeks ago. Whatever the power of that car, it's instantaneous, on this one you can feel some turbo lag. and I will say it could just be in the tune because it would just loosen all four tires so they could have done it on purpose so you have a chance to control the traction and speaking of which it's pulling away so it could also give us it will brake a little bit, but my goodness, when this thing goes into momentum and traction it's mind-blowing, so this car has a good chance of being like a low 10 second car, so we don't have the exact specs again. the comments section below because I guarantee that the person who owns this car, someone who knows about this car, will comment on the e63, the guy who did all the work ended up contacting me via email and then the guy who bought it and He ended up communicating with me via email or Facebook Messenger, which is really cool when I drive one of these cars.
I end up learning a lot about them, but anyway, oh, I mean, it contains the oh yeah, wait you get it. Come back to this, that's awesome and let's assume the broadcast is tuned too. Alright guys, this isn't a double clutch or anything like that. It has a torque converter. It's an 8 speed automatic and even though it's some other Audi cars, they would have it. with the dual clutch, they claim this car makes too much power for that transmission, so it has a torque converter, but it throws like a bat as it is now,so I'm not sure how good the launch control is.
Maybe it would help if you had slick tires on all four, it would help, but this is tremendously fast and we're going to try 0-60, which is 60, okay, wait three point four, which was three point four zero sixty, it's very cold outside. I think it's like 30 something degrees in Chicago and we were driving around in that one and it was still doing three four so that's great in these all wheel drive cars in most real world situations and this goes with my Tesla too, especially 260, these things just dominate, especially if you only have rear wheel drive, so you could have a car like a cts-v or whatever that has rear wheel drive and could make more power, it could be more impressive on paper. numbers wise but it's zero to 60 and in the real world when you drive around town whatever these all wheel drive cars kill that's why the gt-r was so popular let's turn off the throttle control traction which was sixty like ten seconds ago, oh my gosh, let's see we got 3.4 3.4 again, completely consistent with this factory car.
I think it's ranked in the middle three and above. I'm sure with these modifications, if I were going off the line, it would spin all four of these 21-inch wheels, but if we can get traction, I have no doubt it would be down three. I think some guys have gotten to the high twos and as far as how this car would perform in the quarter mile, a lot of These, the APR stage 2 car, are just with a tune up and maybe some downpipes are running mid second, quarter mile, low, 10 seconds, but this one has different turbochargers, it has methanol injection, which I definitely checked before moving on as you guys saw because I've tuned my Trans Am with methanol injection and some of these cars They depend on it.
I don't know if this is true with my Trans Am, if I opened the throttle wide open and revved it with an empty tank, it would have about 20% less fuel than normal and it would deteriorate and explode, so I know that's not really true. sure, but I tuned my own car to be able to monitor all of this stuff, so I wanted to make sure we had meth in this car beforehand. We're messing around with it and everything seems fine, it runs like a top, so let's talk a little bit about the mystery of this car, so Frank picked it up at the dealer's auction and said they had made some modifications to it, and so it is .
I looked at the photos and we were able to zoom in and see that maybe this had some work on the turbocharger or something a little more serious. I saw those fuel lines and stuff happening, so he took a chance and when it came. here you guys just saw what we found, it was the first time I looked at it, so we guys reached out to a PR, they don't really give out much information properly, so they don't want other people to know what they are. done to other customers' cars now because it was clearly bought at auction, they were able to test it and gave us a little bit of stuff, but they still haven't told us exactly what was done to this car, but one of the guys that Mancuso roped into his scanners, he has a tool, the specific tool so you can load a tune into the Audi and it will usually read clearly in a PR scenario, one or the other companies will just say the type of tune and this one. it just had a bunch of numbers and letters, it looked like a beta file, like maybe something they were testing, which is what they hinted at in a PR is that this was like some sort of internal car that was eventually sold to someone, but it was a internal car that they were maybe doing some testing on so they didn't actually release much more than that, other than the fact that it has upgraded turbos and the downpipes, they were able to verify that they weren't giving us power.
Numbers. I hope one of you comment below and then I'll pin the comment, but some of these cars in APR stage two on their website I think are rated at 715 horsepower at 93 and then 760 with a crank. 100 octane, there's no doubt this car probably has that in the wheels, so it could be an 800, 850 horsepower car with upgraded fuel and turbochargers and all that good stuff and methanol injection so these cars can go 9, they weigh 4,400 pounds, but it's possible, oh man, it has that Popple tune, whatever it's called, it's possible for a car like this to last nine seconds, good thing is this is the first generation, it's now been replaced for a second generation RS 7, but I just don't do it.
I don't see performance really becoming obsolete anytime soon and I think we've reached kind of a pinnacle in general with cars like, how much faster are they going to be? We'll have factory cars with 1,200 horsepower running eight seconds in the quarter mile, maybe. but eventually tires and stuff will limit us and the new rs7 is obviously amazing but like this one with just some minor and easy to fit modifications like adjusting an exhaust they are absolutely evil and especially one like this with air suspension that you can get. They with a different suspension that are steel coils that move a little harder they drive this one drives like a dream it's a total luxury car it's huge like I was showing you you can fit anything you want in there including a bunch of dead bodies a big fan of just this overall design and I don't think what you call it a hatchback, you guys have probably already corrected me, it's a sportback or whatever, just a strange design here, being a hatchback in a big four door car. very similar to my Tesla in terms of design and size, all that and here is the reading from zero to 60, so 3.47 the first one was three point four nine and I'm using a VBox sport that I just connected to an iPhone that I bought and an iPhone 5 or something specifically to use with VBox because it only works with Apple, but this is a VBox sport which is the same thing they use in Road & Track, Car and Driver magazine, all of that to test different performance elements so that You can I can do lap times on things that are not really accurate use GPS so I was playing with some of the settings here and the engine and transmission have comfort.
Automatic and dynamic, so we were comfortable, so I put it on dynamic. I think it's our best bet and I put everything else basically it's dynamic as well, so we have the differential, so it has torque vectoring. The engines rattle, I'm not sure if that will work with the special exhaust we have anyway, let's see what 0-60 is. Now we were tearing out all four tires. came completely loose 3.31 and that made all four tires spin for a long time 3.31 I've done this a couple of times and we're easy on the three threes and that's still a little bit off the line I think with some with practice and definitely some stickier tires, you can get into the high two second to 60 range.
What I like about these torque converter cars is that you can preload the transmission, so if you have a manual transmission or one of these cars dual clutch, it's kind of a big hit right off the bat, which you know is good for launch and if you have sticky tires, but it's pretty brutal on the car in some cars and will actually void your warranty if you use throttle control. launch too many times, which is crazy because it's a feature of the car, so with this, since you're just preloading that transmission, there's a big net impact.
I think you could do this a lot and it will prolong the life of the transmission even with this amount of power ridiculously fast car incredibly comfortable car I think it's a great value. I know some of the cars I show on my channel are really very cheap and this one is a little more expensive, but keep in mind that it's only three years old. man, so some of you have been asking when I'm going to put out a feature on the channel, some of you have been saying that I need to diversify a little from too many Mercedes on the channel, which I love, that will never change, but I Yo I would say that I have a lot of diversification in my channel.
I have a Tesla that I bought wrecked at auction that I will use as a daily driver once it is finished. I'm at the Mancuso body shop right now, finishing up the roof and stuff, I'll have a video on that soon, but I have a Tesla, I bought a 400k mile m5, of course I have all my Mercedes, something I don't show on the channel very often, it's my LS stuff so I have my Eco. vets that we tuned for 40 mpg and then I tuned my own Trans Am 9 ii turbo, but anyway many of you, when will I buy an Audi?
I don't know when I find one I really like, this is the first RS. car I have driven. I've really only been on a couple of outings in general in my entire life, so I really like this one. I don't know if I would buy an RS 7, but I want to hear from you. Eve Olks truck guys, if you watch my channel you know I love reliability. I know that doesn't make sense in the world of European cars, but in relation to European German performance cars, I've said it before. I think my e55 is pretty reliable, it has a bulletproof engine and transmission, so what in the Audi world is kind of the equivalent to the e55 or the m113 v8 from the mid-early 2000s in the Mercedes, something that everyone considers bulletproof love or hate.
Mercedes, everyone knows those engines are rock solid, so what is that in the Audi world? I know back in the early 2000s and throughout the 2000s these things were just a nightmare in general with timing chain issues and all that, but is there even a somewhat reliable RS car? or whatever performance model Audi comments on below, let me know what you'd like to see on the channel that isn't ridiculously expensive. You know, I usually buy cheaper economy cars like my c63 now that it has repairs, maybe like a $20,000 car something like that, so what is a good budget?
In the comments section, and if I find a good deal, maybe at an auction, you can see it on the channel.
