Sporty Highlight for Tenth Anniversary: RS 7 boasts 700 hp and 880 Nm from ABT

Ten years since the production launch of the first Audi A7, the new RS 7 Sportback culminates the series with an unprecedented performance boost. The developers have coaxed 600 hp (441 kW) and 800 Nm from the 4.0-litre V8 turbo petrol engine – that’s 40 hp (29 kW) more than its predecessor. ABT Sportsline however, saw considerably greater potential within the coupé-like silhouette with high-tech suspension. The experts investigated the finer details and developed a bespoke software system for their own high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC).

The result is the ABT Power Performance Upgrade*, which unleashes a whopping 700 hp (515 kW) and 880 Nm from the new Audi RS 7 Sportback. Because of this, the prestigious sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is significantly faster. The stopwatch now measures only 3.3 seconds, as opposed to 3.6 seconds for the standard model. Comprehensive tests on public roads and on the dynamometer in conjunction with TÜV-certification, numerous engine protection measures and comprehensive guarantees ensure many years of unadulterated driving pleasure for the customer.

 

If you would like to refine your Audi RS 7 both optically and technically, please take a look at the further progressive options available from the world’s largest tuner of Audi and VW vehicles.
