The figures remain unchanged from the previous model, but a start-stop system has been added. The 8-speed tiptronic transmission with quattro enables the new RS 7 Sportback to hit the 100kmph mark in just under 4s, says Audi. The RS 7 has a claimed top speed of 250kmph with an option to increase to 280kmph and 305kmph. Claimed fuel efficiency figure is 10.52kmpl.
Other changes to the Audi RS 7 Sportback include the Matrix LED headlamps, adaptive air suspension and optional Dynamic Ride Control. 20-inch wheels as standard but customers can opt for 21-inchers. For some sideways fun, the ESC with Sport mode can be deactivated. Inside, you get RS sport seats and RS 7 logos. A Bose surround music system is part of the standard equipment. The RS 7 is a pure four-seater and competes with the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
