The new RS 7 Sportback culminates the series with an unprecedented performance boost. The developers have coaxed 600 hp (441 kW) and 800 Nm from the 4.0-litre V8 turbo petrol engine – that’s 40 hp (29 kW) more than its predecessor.
The experts investigated the finer details and developed a bespoke software system for their own high-tech control unit ABT Engine Control (AEC). The result is the ABT Power Performance Upgrade*, which unleashes a whopping 700 hp (515 kW) and 880 Nm from the new Audi RS 7 Sportback. Because of this, the prestigious sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is significantly faster. The stopwatch now measures only 3.3 seconds, as opposed to 3.6 seconds for the standard model.
