ABT has increased the power of the stylish
Audi RS 7 by 25 percent to 700 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
The ABT Power S engine control unit and its matching exhaust system makes the car smooth-running, even with this much power. The top speed has been increased to 200 mph or 320 km/h.
For those that feel they don't need this much power, ABT prepared a less extreme 666-horsepower package.
"As you can tell from our car's number plate, this four-door coupé has at least 666 hp or 490 kW," says CEO Hans-Jurgen Abt: "This is much more than the serial 560 hp or 412 kW, which isn't low to begin with." The ABT Power upgrade also increases the Audi RS 7's torque to 612 lb-ft (830 Nm). The new top speed is an electronically limited 186 mph (300 km/h).
But no matter if it is ABT Power or Power S: "All the latest generation's upgrades feature the stand-alone ABT control unit with our software, which makes either system fit modern premium engines the best way," Hans-Jurgen Abt explains.
In Bavaria, great events are usually celebrated with a lot of brass music, with the ABT RS 7 featuring its own instrument of sorts: the optional stainless-steel silencer system, exclusively available in conjunction with the 700 hp upgrade. Its sound perfectly matches the assertive look of the four-door car completed by the ABT wheel spacers and sporty alloy wheels. The ER-C in its silver bullet look is available in 20 inches, the gunmetal DR even in 21 inches. Both are also available as attractive sets that include the high-performance tires.
