An Audi RS Q7 Would Be Powerful, Luxurious – And Extremely Desirable

Audi hasn’t confirmed whether or not it will build an RS Q7 but you can bet your bottom dollar that, if it does, such a high-performance vehicle will sell like hotcakes.

The facelifted Q7 was unveiled back in June and these renderings from artist Aksyonov Nikita depict the facelifted SUV with all the added trimmings you would expect from an RS-badged Audi.

Starting at the front, you’re eyes are immediately drawn to the new grille that ditches the chrome surround and chrome vertical slats of the standard Q7 in favor of a black mesh design. In addition, carbon fiber fins have been added to the air intakes while there are also three small vents between the top of the grille and the hood, just like the new Audi A1.

The bold looks continue down the sides where there are new Audi Sport wheels with black and silver spokes. Completing the visual modifications are a blacked-out strip connecting the taillights, a bold diffuser and twin, oval-shaped tailpipes.

In the off-chance that Audi does decide to create such a model, it will inevitably be outfitted with the VW Group’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, with nearly 600 HP, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, just like the upcoming RS Q8. Audi can certainly extract more power than that, but the powers-that-be at Wolfsburg certainly wouldn’t want it to step on the toes of the 641 HP Lamborghini Urus.

    Still looks lame though.

    This is something that needs to happen tbh, especially when its essentially the RSQ8 with more space. I’d get one 🤷🏽‍♂️

      Agreed. The X5///M and AMG-GLE 63 have no trouble selling

    As Audi is preparing the RS Q8 I can’t see the RS Q7 happening. Audi has always been very strict in separating different model types. Audi Sport has a very conservative (and in my eyes sometimes inconsequent) approach to their line-up. RS Q3 yes but no RS Q5. SQ5 but no SQ3 instead they have the SQ2. RS5 Coupé but no RS5 Cabriolet. RS4 and RS6 are only Avants. And the RS7 Sportback has to cover the whole class of potential “RS8” to “RS6” buyers. The most complete line-up of Sport models has AMG.
