Audi-RS7-Performance

 

German luxury car manufacturer Audi has announced the launch of the Audi RS 7 Performance in India. The Audi RS 7 Performance is a five-door sportback powered by 4.0 TFSI engine which produces 614 PS (605 hp) and 750 Nm of peak torque, sprinting from 0 to 100 in 3.7 seconds reaching a top speed of 280 kmph and 305 kmph with the dynamic package plus. The Audi RS 7 Performance is priced at Rs 1,59,65,000 (ex-showroom New Delhi).

 

“Even more performance coupled with outstanding efficiency – that is what is behind the new performance model designation at Audi. The Audi RS 7 Performance further hones the brand’s sporty profile and makes it even more desirable, demonstrating our philosophy of ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’. Its 4.0 TFSI engine with 605 hp and up to 750 Nm of torque push acceleration nearly to levels usually reserved for supercars. With its design aesthetics and cutting edge technology, it surely knows how to impress when it comes to exhilaration, with the additional torque on demand ensuring a breathtaking driving experience,” said Thierry Lespiaucq, Managing Director, Volkswagen Group Sales India Private Limited.

 

The standard eight-speed tiptronic transmission has been designed for sportiness in the new Audi RS 7 Performance. The driver can choose between the modes D and S or change gears manually either by tapping the selector lever or by using the shift paddles on the RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel. In manual mode, a shift indicator in the driver information system or the standard headup display indicates the rev limit.

 

The quattro permanent all-wheel drive delivers the power to the road and flexibly distributes torque as needed via the center differential. In the standard configuration, 40 percent flows to the front axle and 60 percent to the rear axle. The wheel selective torque control intervenes as necessary. Audi also equips the quattro drivetrain with an optional sport differential on the rear axle with active torque distribution between the inside and outside wheel.

 

With its dynamic setup, the standard RS adaptive air suspension lowers the body of the new Audi RS 7 performance by 20 mm. The integrated damping control varies as a function of the road conditions, driving style and the mode chosen in Audi drive select. Audi offers the tauter RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an alternative. Dynamic steering with a continuously variable steering ratio is available as standard on the car for more accurate driving dynamics.

 

The driver can adjust the function of key components using Audi drive select, including the steering, engine and sound management, the tiptronic and the optional sport differential. New in the performance model: Similar to the new Audi R8 high performance sports car, the driver can switch between the modes auto, comfort, dynamic and individual without taking his or her eyes off the road using a special button on the RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel.

The four internally ventilated brake disks have a weight-saving wave design; as an option, Audi offers carbon fiber-ceramic disks. Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) has a Sport mode and can be deactivated if need be.

 

The new Audi RS 7 Performance has a long engine hood, 2920 mm wheelbase and the short overhangs create a sculpture with powerfully harmonious proportions. With its low, flowing roof line, the 5010 mm Audi RS 7 Performance is striking from any angle.

 

Design details include the sportily designed bumpers with large air inlets up front and the profiled diffuser insert at the rear, the gloss black honeycomb grille typical of the RS models and the flared side sills. The new Audi RS 7 performance specific exterior is distinguished by a quattro logo on the air inlet duct and add-on parts in matt titanium look.

 

The sharply sloping, truncated rear end sports a distinctive spoiler lip, a classic sports car feature. Two optional styling packages – matt aluminum and carbon – further customise the appearance. Exclusively available on the new Audi RS 7 Performance is the Matt Titanium styling package with inlet funnels. Thanks to Audi’s lightweight construction technology, the new Audi RS 7 Performance sets new standards with its low weight. A hybrid aluminum design, it weighs roughly 15 percent less than a comparable all-steel body. More than 20 percent of the body is made of aluminum.

 

The new Audi RS7 Performance comes equipped with the Audi Matrix LED headlamps. The LED headlamp cluster dynamically alters the high beam on a real time basis with the sole aim of not dazzling the oncoming traffic and the vehicles in the front. The new Audi RS7 Performance also includes integrated dynamic turn signals on the front and the rear, as well as new tail lights interior design.

 

The new Audi RS 7 Performance comes standard with 20-inch forged aluminum wheels in seven twin-spoke design. Three different 21-inch wheel designs are available as options. The internally vented brake discs feature a wave design for a weight saving of nearly three kilograms. The front discs measure 390 millimeters in diameter and are gripped by six-piston calipers.

The dynamics of the exterior design carry over to the interior of the new Audi RS 7 Performance. The salient element is the “wrap-around” – an arched, horizontal line below the windshield. The cockpit is tailored to the driver, with the centre console oriented in the driver's direction.

 

The interior gets changes to its instrument cluster, air outlet controls, shift paddles, quattro emblem, and the MMI infotainment system that now comes with an Nvidia graphics processor.

 

The dial instruments feature black faces, white dials and red needles. RS logos and screens adorn the key, the flat-bottomed, three-spoke, multifunction steering wheel, the illuminated entry sills, the tachometer, the large driver information system display and the power-retractable monitor of the MMI navigation plus system.
