2020 Audi RS7 Sportback Detailed As Sales Launch In Europe

The time for members of the press has come to get a first taste of the all-new Audi RS7, with the German carmaker releasing the full info on their new super-fast executive car.

The new Audi RS7 Sportback uses the same powertrain with the RS6 Avant, meaning a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 592 HP (600 PS) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. This time around, the engine comes paired to a 48-volt mild hybrid system too.

Power is sent to all four wheels of course, via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Audi’s Quattro system has been appropriately beefed up for the needs of Audi Sport’s latest model, being able to shift 85 percent of the torque to the rear and featuring an optional sport differential on the rear axle.

Audi claims a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 3.6 seconds, offering three top speed options; the standard 155mph (250km/h), a more appropriate for Autobahn users 174 mph (280km/h) and the supercar-baiting 190mph (305km/h).

The styling remains one of the main talking points of the new Audi RS7 Sportback. The front end now hosts a very aggressive front bumper, complete with a model-specific honeycomb grille, side skirts and a matching rear bumper with a set of huge oval exhaust outlets. The real highlight though is the wider bodywork, with the fenders adding an extra 40mm of width in the RS7. The wheels measure 21 inches in diameter but you can opt for larger 22-inch items if you wish.

The new Audi RS7 Sportback rides on an adaptive air suspension as standard, offering three modes to choose from. Those wanting to take things a little further, Audi also offers the RS Sport suspension, which features steel springs and three-stage adaptive dampers. Dynamic all-wheel steering is also offered to simultaneously boost the RS7’s agility and stability.

Compared to its non-Audi Sport siblings, the new RS7’s interior features more aggressive seats with a rhombus pattern, RS-specific aluminum shift paddles, special RS displays in the Audi Virtual Cockpit and a shift light, among other. Audi also offer even more body-hugging RS sport seats dressed in perforated Valcona leather.

Sales of the new Audi RS7 Sportback have just begun, with first deliveries expected to begin in December. As for the price, Audi’s latest 190-mph super executive will ask for at least 121,000 euros in its home market in Germany.

    No environmental conscious person will buy a 600 bhp car.

    This is just stunning. It would be hard if I had to choose between this and the RS6 Avant.

    Audi design is dead. It was good while it lasted.

      might be time to get the prescription checked again.

        No, my eyes are good enough to see gaping fake grilles in the front AND back bumpers. And the cheap shiny black plastic slathered everywhere in that overwrought interior. I’ve sat in recent Audis, and the interior is SO much worse than what they used to produce. I used to think they had the best interiors in the business. Now, Lincoln has them beat!
