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 mpg).

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.

Pricing for the all-new high-performance 2014 Audi RS 7 - the most powerful RS model ever offered in the U.S. - will begin at $104,900. The RS 7, Audi's epitome of aesthetic design, innovative technology and track-tested performance, debuted at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms this fall.

The high-power Audi RS 7 adds to the expanding A7 model line in the U.S., which is enhanced for the 2014 model year with the addition of the all-new fuel-efficient A7 TDI clean diesel model, in addition to the A7 3.0T and S7 4.0T variants.
