2014 Audi RS 7

Audi’s as far as enthusiasts are concerned, begins R and ends with S. And its magic might very well be 7, at as far as the brilliant RS 7 is concerned.

This high-performance version of Audi’s stylish and practical A7 is one of those car geeks might eventually put up with BMW’s E39 M5 and the Cadillac wagon. If those cars mean much to you, will the RS 7.

The RS 7 starts life as an A7, the more shapely — and — version of Audi’s A6 sedan. But make no mistake, is not a sedate luxury sedan. under its hood is a 560 horsepower 4.0-liter V8, which makes the RS 7 a of a lot more impressive than its likeable siblings.

Moreover, worth noting that the RS 7 has a 198 mph top speed (American models are to 174 mph, which still plenty fast).

The expected adjustable air sport quattro all-wheel-drive, eight-speed gearbox and upsized 21-inch (an upgrade) alloy wheels and body kit further set the RS 7 apart. unique sports seats and a of standard and optional technologies.

Our RS 7 was further upgraded with a Bang Olufsen audio $2,800 worth of heads up and night view camera adaptive cruise control, a sport exhaust and a host of goodies. At $122,545, it is more double the price of a standard A7. But nearly double the car.

it up against?

Audi suggests the RS 7 should be cross-shopped against the BMW M6 Coupe and Mercedes-Benz CLS63 but we’d also throw the Panamera Turbo onto list if you’re in the market for kind of thing. You lucky you.

What’s it look

It’s hard to improve on the A7’s svelte aero-back but the company’s sport tuning arm has wonders. Subtle but clearly aggressive, it’s clean looking to be incognito — at to those who don’t know what it is. Luckily, the RS 7 has a great point: The hunch-backed A7 with its rear windscreen is one heck of an vehicle.

Bigger air intakes up front and 20-inch alloy wheels make the RS 7 stand apart its siblings. It’s a cliché, but with 560 ponies on tap, safe to say that most only see the RS 7’s big tailpipes.

And on the

Audi does interiors — this is a fact. But we do the leather stitching on the RS 7 takes a little too far, even if it match the pattern used on the grille. In contrast to the subtlety of the the RS 7’s inner trappings are less restrained.

Optional layered aluminum and wood inlays fitted to our car struck us as more classy the upholstery, but virtually nothing out of place for $122,000.

Again, super sedan builds on a foundation. Though the center is button-heavy, what controls are are generally easy to navigate having to take your from the road ahead. A knob just aft of the gear accesses the RS 7’s infotainment (MMI in Audi-speak), a generally system that displays on a pair of high-resolution screens one that deploys from the top of the and one located in the instrument cluster.

Our RS 7 was further optioned up with a ($5,900) Bang Olufsen system that sounded — but not six grand good.

RS 7 up plenty of space inside and out for and cargo. Fold its rear and it’s easy to put a bicycle wheel removed) in there. something you can’t say about nearly 200 mph hot rods.

But does it go?

Of course it does. The RS 7 to triple digits in the blink of an but it never feels anything of genuinely luxurious while so. Never disturbed over the most undulating terrain, big five-door eats up the miles aplomb, whether the road is arrow straight or something in

A spin and a click or two of the MMI control brings up a host of individual that let drivers alter the steering, throttle response, behavior and suspension. We left the and transmission in a less aggressive but turned up the wick elsewhere, beefed up the steering and gave us a suited to all but the roughest roads. yes.

Stiff, no.

At around lbs. unladen, the RS 7 isn’t a even though it makes use of a deal of aluminum. Defying tonnage is a decidedly lithe amplified by its quick-reacting steering.

The 4.0-liter V8 offers up its full 516 of torque almost as soon as the pedal is tapped, thrusting the RS 7 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. A stomp of the throttle awakens the optional sport and although it doesn’t emit the of an Italian supercar or even a muscle machine, the RS 7 does and snarl with a solid of authority. Even with the transmission left in standard downshifts come with a of delightful pops that us feel as though we were at Le Mans.

One thing the V8 doesn’t do, is use a lot of fuel. For a 560 horsepower car, a 27 mpg rating is nothing short of — that’s better some midsize sedans. town, it sips fuel at a of 16 mpg, however, which that highway figure mainly because the eight-speed keeps revs sufficiently

Easily the world’s most supercar, the Audi RS 7 delivers on par with exotics in a shape for humans — and their

One of the best devices ever to eat up miles, this one.
