The abbreviation ‘RS’ represents many things: the most powerful engine within a model line, quattro permanent all-wheel drive, the pinnacle of dynamic performance, an understated look and comprehensive everyday practicality. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) takes just 3.9 seconds; an option enables a top speed of 305 km/h (189.52 mph) and despite the supreme power of the bi-turbo V8, which produces 412 kW (560 hp), the Audi RS 7 Sportback consumes on average just 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (24.00 US mpg).
On the exterior the sportiness is accentuated by 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 inside reveals true and effortless luxury with black interior, carbon inlays, illuminated doorsill trim strips, the RS 7 logos in the interior, RS sport seats with integrated head restraints as standard and two rear seats with sporty contours. Salient features include the ‘wrap-around’ – an arched, horizontal line below the windshield.
With RS-specific driver information system with shift light, MMI navigation plus with MMI touch and BOSE sound system standard and numerous innovative assistance systems available as options, Audi RS 7 Sportback is bound to delight customers and auto enthusiasts.
Thanks to its 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. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system gives a decisive advantage in traction and driving safety. At its heart is a newly developed center differential with a high locking rate. This is also one of the first RS models from Audi to come standard with a specifically tuned air suspension.
Priced at INR 12,856,000 (ex-showroom Mumbai), the RS 7 Sportback is available at all Audi dealerships across India. Audi has had a good run so far, becoming the first-ever luxury car manufacturer to achieve sales of 10,000 units in a year in India.
