The RS7 is the fastest saloon that Audi has ever built. Featuring a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 dispensing 412kW and 700Nm, the RS7 will sprint to 100km/h in 3.9sec– faster than Audi’s naturally aspirated hero- the V8 R8.
Audi’s 4.0L Twin Turbo V8 is testament to the improvements that can be made in speed and handling through engine refinement. The previous generation RS6, with which the RS7 shares its underpinnings, featured the V10 from a Lamborghini with two turbochargers strapped to it. Despite the displacement advantage, the C6 RS6 was 0.7sec down in the 0-100km/h sprint (3.9sec vs. 4.6sec) and 50Nm down on torque when compared to the RS7.
The RS7 sportback is desperately pretty with its long sweeping roof line and angular rear-end. The subtle styling tweaks on the RS7 make it instantly distinguishable from its A7 counterparts. With its honey comb grille, 21-inch wheels, flared wheel arches and menacing road presence, the RS7 looks and feels special enough to justify its price premium over the S7 and command the attention and consideration of anyone looking at a Mercedes CLS63 AMG or BMW M6.
With only twelve examples of the Audi RS7 currently on the market in Australia exclusivity is guaranteed. At $189,990 and only 6609km on the clock this RS7 is a good alternative for anyone looking at a new S7.
The Carbon Ceramic Brake option looks the business and perform exceptionally well with reduced fade and increased stopping power.
