The face-lifted, 2015 Audi RS7 Sportback was launched in India today at a price of INR 1.4 Crore (ex-showroom Delhi and Mumbai).
Visual changes on the 2015 RS7 are subtle, but the most notable addition has to be the optional Matrix LED headlamps with dynamic turn indicators (front & rear), first seen on the A8. Apart from that, the single frame honeycomb front grille now sports sharper corners and Audi is offering matte aluminum, glossy black and carbon packages optionally. The front bumper features slightly altered air inlets, while a set of 20″ seven spoke alloy wheels with a twin spoke design come as standard, apart from a three sets of optional 21″ wheels.
Power comes from the same twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter TFSI mill equipped with cylinder-on-demand technology. Rated at 560 PS (412 kW) of maximum power and 700 Nm of peak torque, the RS7 Sportback reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) with the optional dynamics package. All that power is transferred to a quattro all-wheel drive system through an eight-speed multitronic gearbox.
The lightweight, hybrid alloy body-shell rides on specifically tuned RS Adaptive Air Suspension, while a RS Sports Suspension set-up with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) can be opted for. The Audi Drive Select vehicle dynamics system comes as standard, while dynamic steering is an optional extra. The standard steel disc brakes have a wave design, and there are the optional ceramic brakes if you want more potent declaration. Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC), along with the Sport Mode can be deactivated.
Step inside to get spoiled by the all-black interior with carbon fibre inlays, the 3-spoke, multi-functioned, flat-bottomed steering wheel, RS Super Sports front seats with integrated headrests, 4-Zone air-conditioning, a BOSE Surround Sound System, MMI Navigation Plus with MMI Touch, illuminated door sill trim strips, a revised instrument cluster along with tweaked air outlet controls and a splattering of RS7 logos.
