The Audi RS 7 Sportback, the latest model from quattro GmbH, combines the
power of a sports car with the elegance of a large, five-door coupé. The sprint
from 0 to 60 mph takes just 3.7 seconds; an option enables a top speed of 174
mph. Despite the supreme power of the biturbo V8, which produces 560 hp, the RS
7 Sportback consumes on average just 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 km (24.00 US
With the Audi RS 7 Sportback, it's fascination at first sight. The long engine hood, the long wheelbase and the short overhangs create a sculpture with powerfully harmonious proportions. With its low, flowing roof line, the RS 7 Sportback is striking from any angle.
Specific details on the exterior of the five-door coupé set sporty accents. These include the distinctively styled bumpers, the partly tinted LED headlights, the high-gloss black honeycomb grill, the add-on parts in matt aluminum and the flared sills. The sharply sloping, truncated rear end sports a distinctive spoiler lip. Two optional styling packages - matt aluminum and carbon - further customize the appearance. Thanks to Audi's lightweight construction technology, the RS 7 Sportback 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.
