Audi RS7 Sportback: Unveiled at Detroit Motor Show

Audi RS7 Sportback

Audi has unveiled the Audi RS7 Sportback at the Detroit Motor Show. Awesome!

While the U.S. won’t be getting the new RS6 Avant, its brutally powerful 552hp (560PS) twin-turbocharged V8 engine will make it on this side of the Atlantic, as Audi has just unwrapped the new RS7 Sportback at the Detroit Motor Show.
The 4.0-liter unit also makes 516 lb-ft (700Nm) available constantly between 1,750 and 5,500 rpm and is connected to a standard eight-speed tiptronic and the brand’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive.

Audi claims a zero to 62mph (100km/h) sprint time of just 3.9 seconds and a top speed limited to 155mph (250km/h) in standard configuration. However, buyers can opt for the dynamic package, in which case top speed is lifted to 174mph (280 km/h), and the dynamic package plus that allows the car to top out at 190mph (305km/h).
