Ralph, for people who don’t know much about the tuning world can you introduce APR and what sets you apart?
How much research and development are actually done inhouse?
Walk us through the process when a new car is launched in the VAG group, how do you approach it?
How is your relationship regarding to manufacturers, if there’s one at all?
So what kind of changes do you execute on a car to improve its performance?
What cars possess the most potential for APR to build on?
Last, but definitely not least, we want to know about the Golf RLMS, what’s the story?
The RLMS is my baby (laughs). It’s the car we’ve built for the SEMA show and it’s a continuous work in progress. Basically, we looked at the Audi RS3 TCR racer and built a VW Golf inspired by that car. Although it has the white interior now, it’s really a car built for the track, so we’ll change it next year. The RLMS will definitely become spectacular.
