New Audi A7 Soon

The Audi A7 is one of the most stylish hatchbacks on the market. The S7 added a lot of sportiness to this large sedan. Audi's RS version is will be hitting the US soon. Will Canadians be able to get their hands on this exceptional sedan as well?

The new Audi RS7, a high-performance version of the A7 sedan will be available to our southern neighbours this fall. It was unveiled at the last North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Developed by quattro GmbH, the performance subsidiary of Audi, the RS model is track tested, including 5,000 miles at full speed on the Nürburgring motorsports complex track in Germany, in order to gain the most performance and durability possible.

The 2014 Audi RS7 will be powered by a 4.0-liter TFSI (Turbocharged Fuel Straight Injected) V8 producing 560 horsepower and capable of propelling the car to 100 km/ h in just 3.9 seconds. The torque produced by the twin-turbo engine is 553 lb-ft between 1750 and 5500 revolutions/min. This will be a particularly fuel efficient V8 thanks to "Cylinder on Demand", which disables cylinders two, three, five and eight, letting it operate as a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder when power is not a priority. Audi says that the system can improve fuel consumption by 5 to 10%. The standard Tiptronic eight-speed automatic transmission, specially tuned for the RS7, will let you choose between the D (Drive) and S (Sport) modes, or simply change gears yourself using the selector lever or steering wheel shift paddles.

The RS7 is standardly equipped with a full time quattro AWD system. It distributes the torque as required between front and rear axels defaulting at a 60% rear and 40% front distribution. The electronic stability system (ESC) features a Sport mode which can be disabled on the racetrack. The standard wheels are 20-inch polished forged aluminum. 21-inch wheels, also in aluminum, are an available option with a choice of three designs.

The official pricing is not yet known, but the purchase price is expected to lie between $110,000 (US) and $125,000 (US).
