The Audi RS 7 Sportback made its debut at the ongoing week long North American International Auto Show 2013 in Detroit.
The RS 7 Sportback, the large five-door coupe from Audi, combines many strengths to produce a fascinating character. A market launch in the Middle East has been confirmed for 2014.
Its strong heart is the 4.0 TFSI, which takes Audi’s downsizing strategy to the high-end category. The twin-turbo V8 displaces 3,993 cc and develops awesome power, with 560 hp available between 5,700 and 6,700 rpm. A constant 700 Nm of torque are available between 1,750 and 5,500 rpm.
The RS 7 Sportback sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. Audi limits the top speed in the standard configuration to 250 km/h. Top speed with the optional dynamic package is 280 km/h and 305 km/h with the dynamic package plus. Yet the new top model of the model series consumes on average just 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 km. This top value is due in part to the standard start-stop system and innovative thermal management. The standard eight-speed tiptronic is specially tuned to the sporty character of the Audi RS 7 Sportback.
The most innovative efficiency technology in the new Audi RS 7 Sportback is the cylinder on demand (COD) system. To increase efficiency the 4.0 TFSI runs as a four-cylinder engine at low to medium loads and engine speeds.
The Audi RS 7 Sportback comes standard with quattro permanent all-wheel drive for its decisive advantage in traction and driving safety compared with its two-wheel drive competitors. Audi also offers the optional sport differential for the rear axle, which uses two superposition gears to actively distribute the power between the wheels.
The character of the Audi RS 7 Sportback is immediately obvious. A series of specific design details give a sporty edge to its flowing coupe design. These include the distinctive bumpers and high-gloss black protective grille with honeycomb structure at the front of the car as well as add-on parts in matt aluminum. At the rear of the car, which features a power extending spoiler, the diffuser and the two large, elliptical tailpipe trims of the exhaust system catch the eye. The elegant dynamics carry over to the cockpit of the Audi RS 7 Sportback displays for boost pressure and oil temperature plus a lap timer round out the RS 7-specific menu.
The body of the Audi RS 7 Sportback includes up to 20 percent aluminum and includes many parts of high-strength and ultra high-strength steels. Its high rigidity is the foundation for the precise handling, excellent workmanship and quiet cabin free of intrusive noise.
The Audi RS 7 Sportback comes with a generous list of equipment, including LED headlights, a tire pressure monitoring system, the parking system plus, three-zone automatic air conditioning, cruise control and the Audi sound system in addition to features mentioned previously. high-end options include a head-up display, a comfort package, the dynamic package and the dynamic package plus
