Every once in awhile, a car comes across my screen that will send me into daydream race car country…like this APR Audi Sport customer racing RS 3 LMS. I’ve just wasted about an hour dreaming of driving this at Laguna Seca or VIR or anywhere instead of actually finishing this article or packing for Monterey or even cooking dinner for my hungry pack of teenage boys. The last time we featured an R8 race car Find of the Day, I was off to La-La land for several hours.
What you see here is a perfect example of an Audi Sport customer racing RS 3 LMS. I say perfect because it has never been raced, never been in an accident, and has only 41 hours on it. APR used this for small private track rentals, mostly for dealer ride-alongs. It would go out on the track with a passenger, do a few laps, come in, swap out the passenger, and head back out. As it has never been raced, it hasn’t experienced the stresses placed on a car taken to its limits for several hours which is (obviously) extremely hard on a vehicle. Essentially, you are getting a new race car.
The Audi RS 3 LMS was available with either a sequential 6-speed racing transmission or an optional 6-speed DSG; this one has the DSG.
