2014 Audi RS7 hogs the limelight at the Detroit Auto Show
Aesthetic design, innovative technology and impressive sportiness are some of the strengths that combine to produce a fascinating character of Audi’s brand-new RS 7 Sportback. This large five-door coupe from Audi not just stands strong for dynamics at their most beautiful, but also offers outstanding performance with maximum efficiency. Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show 2013 in Detroit, where we also saw the launch of the Bentley’s world’s fastest four-seat convertible, the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé and Cabriolet, and the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the RS7 Sportback uses a 4.0 TFSI engine producing incredible 560 hp which helps it accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in a whip of 3.9 seconds, and the speed governor can be deactivated upon driver’s request to permit a top speed of up to 305 km/hr. Despite this thrilling performance, the RS 7 Sportback which comes standard with quattro permanent all-wheel drive and polished, lightweight 20-inch forged wheels in an impressive 7 twin-spoke design, consumes on average just 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 km.
Notably, the innovative and high-tech efficiency technology in the RS 7 Sportback is the cylinder on demand (COD) system, which impressively deactivates the cylinders at low to medium loads and engine speeds via electrochemical actuators.
Further, the standard 8-speed tiptronic comes especially tuned to the sporty character of the new 5-door high-performance coupe which impressively boasts of distinctive bumpers and glossy-black protective grille at the car’s front as well as add-on parts in matt aluminum.
The ride which can also be customized using the Audi exclusive program, will be made available in a choice of 10 exterior colors, including the new shade Nardo gray and the exclusive finish Daytona Gray, matt effect, along with two styling packages.
