Sporty Performance: The new RS 7 performance

Added to the sporty profile of the RS7, the first experience I had behind the wheel reiterated this model’s performance coupled with outstanding efficiency. In other words, the overall impression it left me with after a few days was its supercar performance while it being deceptive with an exterior of a day to day heading to office or meetings type of wheels.

 

Under the hood of the RS7 is a 4.0 TFSI engine with 605 hp and up to 750 Nm of torque push acceleration (3.7 seconds) nearly to levels usually reserved for supercars. Fuel consumption remains unchanged at 9.5 liters per 100 kilometers, corresponding to 221 g CO2 per km.

 

The RS high-performance model sprints like supercars from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, an improvement of 0.2 seconds over the respective base RS model. With the optional dynamic package, top speed can be increased from 250 to 280 and 305 km/h, respectively.

 

The actual drive experience was comfortable using the Audi Drive Select with the tiptronic and the optional sport differential. The car easily switches between the auto, comfort and dynamic modes and comes with trend setting technologies.

 

The elegant and sporty interior of the RS 7 performance offers the seats in the color combination black and blue with the optional RS performance design package. The dial instruments feature black faces, white dials and red needles add to the look and feel.

 

Audi's Multi Media Interface (MMI) system makes entertainment, communication and navigation easy and user friendly with a pop-up screen on the dash. If I were to buy this model, I would opt for the Comfort Seating package with massage option “contour” seats.

 

For the exterior, the most attractive eye catching elements include the sportily designed bumpers, the gloss black honeycomb grille typical of the RS models and the flared side sills. The RS performance-specific exterior also features a quattro logo on the air inlet duct and striking add-on parts in matt titanium look.

 

Overall, the RS7 comes with the perfect combination of horsepower, ample legroom and boot space, seductive exterior and all the best qualities one looks for when investing in an executive car that thrills and turns heads.
