ABT RS7-R Takes The New Audi RS7 Sportback To 730 Horsepower

The $114,000 2021 Audi RS7 Sportback might have absent on sale only about a thirty day period in the past in the United States, but it is been all around in Europe for very a when. That’s why tuners have currently taken discover of Ingolstadt’s sportiest liftback, with ABT releasing the initially package at the conclusion of January when the RS7 obtained 22-inch aero wheels and a electricity bump to 690 hp. Now, the Kempten-based mostly aftermarket specialist is introducing the upcoming degree of upgrades for the flagship Sportback.

Meet up with the RS7-R. Its twin-turbo four.-liter V8 now pushes out a nutritious 730 hp and 920 Newton-meters (679 pound-feet) of torque. ABT did more than just tweak the motor as the motor vehicle now rides on a new established of 22-inch wheels and has a quad exhaust process changing the dual oval tips of the conventional RS7. A entire entire body wrap was included for very good measure, along with a spoiler lip at the entrance in which the bumper now characteristics canards. The rear spoiler at the back again is also new, as is the diffuser bathed in carbon fiber like all of the other add-ons.

ABT has also labored on the interior a little little bit to add even more carbon fiber and leather-based. The heart console now has a badge pointing out the amped-up RS7 Sportback will be a restricted affair as only a hundred twenty five autos will be converted to the RS7-R specification. This certain motor vehicle truly belongs to German racing driver Daniel Abt, for this reason the “Handcrafted for Daniel Abt” on the storage lid on the heart console.

The tuner does not mention how quick the RS7 Sportback is subsequent the enormous electricity bump, but we’ll remind out the conventional 591-hp product with its 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) goes from to 62 mph (one hundred km/h) in 3.six seconds and tops out at 190 mph (305 km/h). Should really you want a beefier RS7 straight from Audi, it might just occur as Audi hinted through last year’s Frankfurt Motor Clearly show in which the motor vehicle debuted that a hybrid variant could get there even further down the line with more oomph.

Though the RS7-R is pleasant and all, we’re more anxious to see the RS6-R based mostly on the most recent RS6 Avant. We won’t have to hold out a lot lengthier as ABT has promised the entire reveal will consider position in the 2nd 50 percent of April.
