  • Practical car packed with performance.

One of the more practical performance cars in the market, Audi RS7 has been recently introduced by Audi India in the country and it’s put forth a more powerful version and appropriately calling it the ‘RS7 Performance.’ This coupe is priced at a whopping INR 1,59,65,000 crore.

Since we are talking about power and performance, let’s see what this power-packed performance vehicle is made of. It has a 4.0L TFSI turbocharged petrol engine which generates a power of 596BHP, 44BHP more than the outgoing model at 6100-6800rpm. There is an increase in the maximum rpm as well to 200 revs. The torque of this engine is 700Nm at 1750-6000rpm. A highlight worth mentioning is the overboost function; its primary function allows the driver to amplify the torque temporarily from 750Nm at 2500-7500rpm. The engine is mated to an 8 speed tiptronic AMT and the power is sent to all four wheels.

Few key high points in the Audi RS7 Performance is that it is 15% lighter than the outgoing version as over 20% aluminium is used in its construction. A reduction in weight has caused the power-to-weight ratio to go up which enables this performance car to do 0-100kmph in 3.7 seconds. The top speed of this vehicle is 280kmph and with the use of the dynamic package plus, this can be pushed to 305kmph.

Audi has put a system in place which works side by side with COD (Cylinder on Demand) and this improves fuel efficiency. It works by activating only 4 of the 8 cylinders – it works based on what is necessary. And good fuel efficiency too is ensured by the automaker.

The exterior is quite differently designed and now has a unique coupe like shape. The front fascia is tweaked and has aggressive looking bumpers, a honey comb grille in glossy black, LED daytime running lights where optionally you can choose the Matrix LED headlamps as well and the air intakes have become larger.

The paint options available for this version are Sepang Blue, Floret Silver, Mythos Black and Glacier White.

It is brought into the country the CBU route which is why it is priced so high. But whatever be it, it is surely worth every penny!  Whoever prayed for a 4-door performance car which is practical as well, their wish has come true!
