APR Announces a New Partnership with Motul as APR’s Official Supplier of Premium Lubricants
APR Motorsport began testing the Motul lineup of premium fluids and lubricants in 2007
on the then new APR Motorsport VW GTIs. The vehicles underwent years of brutal endurance
testing through professional motorsport racing in both GRAND-AM and SCCA World Challenge
series. After initial success on the circuit, APR’s testing extended beyond the track to
daily use in moderately to extremely modified APR employee and R&D vehicles. The Motul line
of products stood up to APR’s rigid five year testing regimen and the decision was made to
certify Motul as the Official Lubricant of APR.
Much of Motul’s success can be attributed to their passion for development of premium
lubricants designed specifically for high stress endurance racing. This approach is shared
by APR through the development of their own product line with APR Motorsport’s racing
efforts across several vehicle platforms and racing series. From MotoGP to Le Mans Prototype
Racing programs, Motul’s motorsport development has yielded years of performance data,
solidifying their position at the forefront of technological advancements unmatched in the
industry. Motul’s products are designed to protect, clean and deliver consistent results,
from daily driving to the highest stress environments, and APR Motorsport has proven this
to be true for half a decade.
Motul will continue to provide all vehicle fluids and lubricants to APR’s racing efforts in
GRAND-AM and other series with the APR Audi R8 in the Rolex Sports Car Series and in the
Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge with the APR Audi S4, 3 VW GLI’s and 2 VW GTI’s.
Motul’s products will be distributed through APR’s US dealer network and through APR’s
website. As a further value add to APR’s world famous Turbo and Supercharger Systems, APR
will include Motul oil and coolant to further Enhance the Driving Experience with the best
fluid and lubricants on the market.
Motul’s uncompromising fluid and lubricant solutions are designed for nearly all modern
VAG vehicles whether it’s dedicated to the track or daily driven on the street. Choosing
the correct fluid and lubricant is as easy as following APR’s recommended guide or by
calling an APR representative for further assistance. Removing the confusing guesswork
save customers money and time and ensure the maximum protection their vehicle needs by
running the correct fluid or lubricant. Please visit www.goapr.com/products/motul.html to learn more.

On most street cars we use Specific 502.00 505.00 505.01 with 5000 mile oil changes (more of the car is stock).
The daily driven stage 3+ cars usually go with 300V Power 5w40 with 3000 mile oil changes.
So for a stock 1.8t would the Motul Specific 505.01, 502.00 & 505.00 SAE 5w40 be more then fine to use as I just purchased the 1.8t and want to avoid any issues sludge related and use a good quality synthetic (formally a Lubro Moly fan but will try anything once)
