First unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March last year, the new RS7 will be the second performance variant under the ‘RS’ badge to be launched in India. Apart from these two, India also has the the S4 and S6, the high performance variants of A4 and A6 sedans.
Powered by twin-turbocharged 4.0l V8 TFSI engine, generating 560 PS and 700 Nm torque, RS7 does 0-100 kmph in just 3.7 seconds. Though it will be the most powerful Audi car in the country once launched, being a 4 door, top speed will be limited to 305 kmph. For a powerful and fast car like that, mileage is impressive at approximately 10 kmpl, thanks to the impressive eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and their Quattro four wheel drive system.
We are on our way to the launch venue of Audi RS7 in Mumbai. The launch is scheduled to commence at 2 PM (IST) and it will be headed by Audi India’s Head, Joe King. Along with the price and images of RS7, more details from Audi India coming up. Stay tuned.[liveblog]
