The 2021 Audi RS7 Sportback is the Audi making all of the noise, starting at $114.000 USD. The new car to the fleet of the brand is a wide-bodied, four-door sports car that most notably features a usable back seat and practical hatchback. This all-new RS7 represents the strongest version of the comparably subdued Audi A7. The RS model boasts a more aggressive-looking bodywork and has exclusive high-performance equipment that helps it compete with alike rivals such as the Mercedes-AMG GT63s and Porsche Panamera Turbos.
With Audi incorporating Sportback into its name, the second-generation RS7 receives a unique and notable design both with its exterior and interior along with even greater technology and increased power.
Audi does very well with their RS7 series as there’s only one RS7 to choose from and it comes extremely well-equipped with additional features and options such as all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and an adjustable air suspension system.
The engine, performance, and transmission are staples of the car. The power comes from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 that pairs with a 48-volt hybrid system, eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. The RS7 is equipped with 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, which Audi is quick to say the car can go from zero to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds. Likewise, to the speed craze, the car is said to be able to reach a top speed of almost 190 mph when equipped with the most dynamic package. The RS7 has a standard air suspension with adaptive settings for varied ride quality. Its standard 21-inch wheels can be traded for 22-inches, but the larger wheels will likely diminish its on-road comfort. Other standout options include rear-wheel steering and ceramic brakes for improved agility and enhanced stopping power.
This is a beast to say the least. For Audi and car lovers, this is definitely a car to experience, if you’re lucky to add to the fleet, or just make your daily driver!
