The new Audi RS7 Sportback made its world debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show and will be put on sale at the end of 2019.
Under the hood of the new RS7 Sportback Audi placed a twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V-8 engine combined with a 48-volt electrical system. This system delivers a total of 600 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in only 3.6 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155.3 mph). However, it can be increased to 280 km/h (174 mph) with the Dynamic package and to 305 km/h (189.5 mph) with the Dynamic plus package.
Just like the recent RS6 Avant, the RS7 Sportback will be offered with standard adaptive air suspension. In the normal position, the body of the new RS 7 Sportback sits 20 millimeters (0.8 in) lower than an Audi A7 Sportback with standard suspension. At speeds above 120 km/h (74.6 mph), it will drop by a further 10 millimeters (0.4 in) and offer a lift mode enabling the vehicle to be raised by 20 millimeters (0.8 in) if requested.
As for its design, we find the RS7 Sportback an amazing car, both inside and out. It features the usual massive blacked-out grille with the usual RS-specific three-dimensional honeycomb structure. There are also RS-specific door sills with black inlays, a spoiler that will extend from the tailgate at speeds above 62 mph, plus an RS exhaust system, with a large, chrome-colored oval tailpipe on each side. The car rides on 10-spoke, 21-inch wheels.
On the interior Audi is offering as standard an MMI dual touchscreen interface and virtual cockpit, RS sport bucket seats covered in black Nappa leather, while RS sport seats covered with Valcona leather are offered as an option.
For the exterior Audi is offering 13 different colors, including two that are only being offered for the RS cars: Nardo gray and Sebring black.
