What’s it about low-slung sports cars, and the way they can grab everyone’s attention? Of course, there is the engine. Muscle from every rpm seems to create a roar and burbling that agrees with almost all petrol-head ears. Even the odd non car fanatic can become impressed with a stunning V8 rumble. True sports cars ride low and provide a sexy appearance – obviously another likeable feature. I guess the other draw card for the quick cars is the sensational driving experience. The power to show off to occupants via the right foot can make for an entertaining drive – as long as it’s done safely. Audi have another true thoroughbred in its showroom ranks that really is as sensational to drive as it is to look at. The new Audi RS7 Sportback strikes the right note with its impressive looks, magnificent V8 engine and superbly likeable ride. This is certainly a car that will grab everyone’s attention.
Audi are rated as one of the premium car manufacturers. Audi’s use of the latest cutting-edge engineering has ensured that the new Audi RS7 Sportback not only looks lean and mean, but the light weight components keep the RS7 ahead of the pack. Featuring an aluminium hybrid design, the lightweight technology ensures that the Sportback’s agility is maximised while the car’s fuel consumption is massively reduced. As a very usable family-orientated sports car, the Audi RS7 Sportback is capable of very fast cornering and excellent fuel consumption. And when you step back and admire the lines of the new RS7 Sportback, its magical design captivates and inspires your drive. Very balanced looks with beautiful curves – particularly around the C-Pillar and rear haunches – make for onlooker approval wherever you care to drive.
Inside the engine bay of the Audi RS7 Sportback is the latest 4.0-litre V8 TFSI engine. Formidable acceleration is experienced whatever the road speed and, at 160 km/h if you plant your boot the car has so much to offer that you are pushed back in your seat as the RS7 Sportback powers away. A lovely audible growl is heard from the V8, though the cabin is actually very well muted for effortless and relaxed cruising ability. Power is rated at a massive 412 kW, with the ability to be enhanced even further. A 0-100 km/h dash is completed in just 3.9 seconds, and Audi have governed the car’s top speed to 250 km/h. Be ready for the drive of your life, as the Audi RS7 Sportback is very impressive. With the added bonus of the car’s Quattro permanent all-wheel drive technology and a super-quick 8-speed tiptronic gearbox, there leaves no reason to be late to the boardroom meetings!
Cruising the roads at everyday speeds has the RS7 Sportback using only four of the eight cylinders, with no detection of power loss or retardation. As soon as you need the power, instant V8 power is at the ready. This type of technology helps your fuel bill to drop dramatically, while the engine also emits far less CO2. The RS7 can return around 8.5 litres/100 km and emit just 229g/km of CO2. These are figures that place the RS7 at the top , where rivals can’t match – even the BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
Feedback through the steering system is first-rate, and the shift paddles of the flat-bottomed RS sports steering wheel enables you to change gears manually super easily. Addictive acceleration can have you looking forward to the next big corner or passing manoeuvre. Adaptive cruise control is a feature that you really will appreciate – particularly as the legal speed limits in Australia are a doddle for the Audi RS7.
Inside the Audi RS7 Sportback is a very elegant arrangement of premium materials and superb technology. Upholstered in luxurious Valcona leather, the RS sport seats offer excellent support and feature a gorgeous honeycomb-pattern.
Standard equipment and features include RS body styling, 20-inch alloy wheels, Audi’s ‘Drive Select’ system, four-zone climate control, heated electric seats, full LED headlights, a head-up display, sat-navigation, a media system, an electric sunroof, a Bose 14-speaker sound system, parking sensors, a reversing camera and steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
For the best four-door coupe, the new Audi RS7 Sportback might just be the answer to your search.
