The “four door coupe” sedan class was invented by Mercedes through its CLS cars and the model became an instant hit. Other luxury manufacturers got into the game, and this was when Audi first launched the A7, its classy four door coupe with a unique liftback boot. Continuing with the Audi tradition, the RS version of the car was soon released for customers who wanted a little more power and performance. And of course, with the RS 7 they decided to go all out. With its twin turbo V-8 and Quattro all drive, Audi succeeded in creating a powerful and sophisticated behemoth.
What’s new with 2015 Audi RS 7?
The Audi RS 7 was first released in 2014 and it immediately took the world by storm. The 2015 edition maintains the same classic performance with a few impressive upgrades. It is the first Audi that is capable of going from 0 – 60 mph in just under 4 seconds. The new Audi standard head up display is also a part of the car and it also has two new options packages.
Luxury and Performance
This is easily the most powerful Audi that you can buy. Its engine performs better than even the V-10 R8 sports car. The 2015 Audi RS 7 puts out 560 horsepower from a 4 litre V8 engine. Its eight speed paddle shafted automatic, along with the Quattro all drive ensures the best possible driving experience.
The A7 front resembles the A6, and has a similar instrument panel and dashboard. The trunk is long and wide with an efficient design that combines style and provides great luggage space. The air suspension can be adjusted to dynamic mode and the steering to direct-ratio mode. This makes it possible to turn around corners at breathtaking speeds.
The interiors of the vehicle are also top notch, just like all other Audi cars. The seats are very comfortable with great upholstery and a gorgeous trim. However, the rear seats can be a little limited in space for tall passengers. The infotainment system is also really cool with 3D Google Earth, Sirius Traffic updates and an amazing sound system.
