Audi RS7 Sportback: Coming with twin-turbo V8 and 600bhp?

Audi RS7 Sportback

Street word has it that the Audi RS7 Sportback will receive a twin-turbo V8 with 600bhp, a true street monster.

The RS 7 will sit lower to ground and ride on a sports suspension. Larger air intakes in the front fascia and 19–20-in. wheels should give the A7’s handsome lines an extra edge. Under the hood, expect a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine that, if rumors prove correct, could provide nearly 600 bhp. That monster power output could fire a warning shot across the bows of rivals, especially BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Thankfully, an adaptive suspension and torque vectoring differential—not to mention the Quattro all-wheel-drive hardware—is on tap to keep the power under control.
