Yet, the owner of this brand new Audi A7 Sportback thought his ride was stylish and aggressive-looking enough to handle such a bright shade of green – and it’s hard to disagree, even though this is merely a diesel-powered model and not an RS7.
While the exterior is about as flashy as it gets in Audi circles, it’s actually the Audi Exclusive interior that impressed us most. Not only does the light brown leather blend in really well with the Alcantara finish on the door panels, headliner and pillars, but it also works with the wood inserts. The best part though is the neon green contrast stitching found throughout the cabin (upper dashboard, steering wheel, door panels, seats etc), bringing everything together in terms of matching up with the body color.
We realize that beauty is always in the eye of the beholder and that different people tend to like different things, but if you’re into vibrant colors and you like what Audi have done with their latest A7 Sportback, then you probably wouldn’t mind having something like this parked in your driveway – unless of course, you’re not a fan of diesel engines.
This A7 50 TDI quattro model is powered by a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 producing 282 HP (286 PS) and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque for a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.7 seconds.
Opting instead for a 55 TFSI version will get you a gasoline-powered V6 with 335 HP (340 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque, cutting your 0-62 to 5.3 seconds.
