We are happy about the fact that Audi India is taking our car market very seriously and has been quick with bringing the RS7 to us. The RS7 made its public debut exactly a year ago at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show and is basically the hi-performance variant of the highly successful fast back sedan.
The Audi RS7 boasts of a host of visual enhancement that help you with differentiating it from the regular model (if we may dare to use words like regular for A7) to be ‘vanilla’). The RS7 boasts of bigger air intakes, a honeycomb grille, faux aluminium mirror housings and twin oval exhaust tips, all of which are sufficient to differentiate it from the ‘lesser’ variants. Also helping with the differentiation are the tastier 20-inch mag wheels. Optional extras on theRS7 21 inch wheels, large Quattro lettering on the front grille, modified front splitter and rear diffuser.
On the inside, the car comes kitted out with a flat-bottomed steering wheel, a color display that shows data like oil temperature, boost pressure and a digital shift light and a new speedo, which is calliberated till 200mph (320 kmph)
