Audi RS7 revealed at Detroit Motor Show

Recommended Posts


Audi has unveiled the rival to the BMW M6 GranCoupe, the RS7 at the Dtroit Motor Show 2013. The new RS7 comes with a new 552bhp twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine. The RS7 is the sixth RS model in the Audi range.

Power for the RS7 Sportback comes from the same 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine used by the recently unveiled third-generation RS6 Avant. It produces 552bhp at 5700rpm and 76.45kgm of torque between 1750rpm and 5500rpm - some 138bhp and 20.46kgm more than the less highly tuned version of the same V8 in the S7 Sportback.Because Audi’s seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is unable to handle the heady torque loading of the engine, the RS7 Sportback receives a standard eight-speed automatic ’box. It operates in combination with the latest evolution of the Audi’s Quattro four-wheel drive system, offering the choice between D (drive), S (sport) and M (manual) modes.


Audi is yet to confirm a kerb weight for its latest RS model but claims it delivers 0-100kph in 3.9sec and a top speed limited to 250kph. Buyers can raise the top speed to 280kph with an optional Dynamic package and to 305kph with a Dynamic Plus package.

Underpinning the RS7 Sportback is a heavily reworked version of the standard A7 Sportback’s chassis that features widened tracks and air suspension. Audi will also offer its new performance model with an optional steel-sprung suspension in combination with Dynamic Ride Control as part of a package known as Sport Suspension Plus — a move that is reflected on the new RS6 Avant.

Actually the figures are conservative. Audi has a tendency of giving out conservative company claimed performance figures.

Quite a few who tested it say she stands at 3.7 to the ton.

Whats more...i hear there is an RS-7 PLUS on its way here with 600hp ! :lol:

With such performance figures , i wonder what the plus might be capable of.

On a roll Audi !
