Audi, the German luxury car manufacturer, introduced its sporty spearhead Audi RS 7 Sportback recently in India. Combining the power of a sportscar with the elegance of a large, five-door coupé, the Audi RS 7 Sportback boasts of being the most powerful Audi in its existing range in India and is priced at Rs. 1.29 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai). This powerful bi-turbo V8 was unveiled by Mr. Joe King, Head, Audi India and is available at all Audi dealerships across India. Salman Khan is the first customer.
“We started the year with the historic achievement of becoming the first-ever luxury car manufacturer to achieve sales of 10,000 units in a year, and now we follow it up with another momentous step – introduction of the most powerful Audi model from our product range – Audi RS 7 Sportback in India. Embodying our philosophy of “Vorsprung durch Technik”, the Audi RS 7 Sportback is Audi’s superlative illustration of sportiness, progressiveness and sophistication- combining the strengths of a large, five-door coupé and a sports car.
The abbreviation “RS” represents many things: the most powerful engine within a model line, quattro permanent all-wheel drive, the pinnacle of dynamic performance, an understated look and comprehensive everyday practicality.
The Audi RS 7 Sportback, the latest model from quattro GmbH, combines the power of a sports car with the elegance of a large, five-door coupé. The sprint from 0 to 100 kmph takes just 3.9 seconds; an option enables a top speed of 305 kmph. Despite the supreme power of the bi-turbo V8, which produces 560 hp, the RS 7 Sportback consumes on average just 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.
Specific details on the exterior of the five-door coupé- the distinctively styled bumpers, the partly tinted LED headlights, the high-gloss black honeycomb grill, the add-on parts in matt aluminum and the flared sills, set sporty accents. The inside story of the Audi RS 7 Sportback reveals true and effortless luxury. The salient element is the “wrap-around” – an arched, horizontal line below the windshield.
Thanks to Audi’s lightweight construction technology, the RS 7 Sportback sets new standards with its low weight. A hybrid aluminum design, it weighs roughly 15 percent less than a comparable all-steel body. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system gives a decisive advantage in traction and driving safety. At its heart is a newly developed center differential with a high locking rate. The Audi RS 7 Sportback is one of the first RS models from Audi to come standard with a specifically tuned air suspension.
”With LED headlights and rear-lights, RS-specific driver information system with shift light, MMI navigation plus with MMI touch and BOSE sound system standard and numerous innovative assistance systems available as options, Audi RS 7 Sportback will thoroughly delight our customers and auto enthusiasts.” added Mr. King.
With their powerful engines, the RS models are the dynamic spearhead in the Audi model range. The high-performance vehicles are consistently sporty in character. Apart from RS 7 Sportback, Audi RS 5 Coupé is also available in India.
