The $114,000 2021 Audi RS7 Sportback may possibly have long gone on sale only about a month ago in the United States, but it’s been close to in Europe for rather a whilst. That is why tuners have currently taken notice of Ingolstadt’s sportiest liftback, with ABT releasing the first package deal at the close of January when the RS7 acquired 22-inch aero wheels and a energy bump to 690 hp. Now, the Kempten-based aftermarket expert is introducing the following stage of updates for the flagship Sportback.
Fulfill the RS7-R. Its twin-turbo 4.-liter V8 now pushes out a healthier 730 hp and 920 Newton-meters (679 pound-toes) of torque. ABT did far more than just tweak the engine as the motor vehicle now rides on a new established of 22-inch wheels and has a quad exhaust technique replacing the dual oval recommendations of the normal RS7. A total physique wrap was added for fantastic evaluate, together with a spoiler lip at the entrance exactly where the bumper now capabilities canards. The rear spoiler at the back is also new, as is the diffuser bathed in carbon fiber like all of the other include-ons.
ABT has also worked on the inside a small bit to include even far more carbon fiber and leather-based. The centre console now has a badge pointing out the amped-up RS7 Sportback will be a constrained affair as only a hundred twenty five cars and trucks will be converted to the RS7-R specification. This distinct motor vehicle really belongs to German racing driver Daniel Abt, that’s why the “Handcrafted for Daniel Abt” on the storage lid on the centre console.
The tuner doesn’t point out how quickly the RS7 Sportback is following the huge energy bump, but we’ll remind out the normal 591-hp design with its 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) goes from to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and tops out at one hundred ninety mph (305 km/h). Really should you want a beefier RS7 straight from Audi, it may possibly just occur as Audi hinted throughout very last year’s Frankfurt Motor Clearly show exactly where the motor vehicle debuted that a hybrid variant could get there even more down the line with far more oomph.
Whilst the RS7-R is awesome and all, we’re far more anxious to see the RS6-R based on the most recent RS6 Avant. We will not have to wait around much lengthier as ABT has promised the total reveal will just take put in the next 50 percent of April.
