Audi’s new RS7 uber-swooped saloon has been revealed at the Detroit Motor Show. The price will be in the region of £84,000 (approx. $134,988) and the car has a release date of the end of 2013.
It’s fair to say the car has some specs and performance which will raise some eyebrows. Capable of 0-62mph in a Ferrari-challenging 3.9-seconds, it is available in ungoverned form to give a top speed of 189mph (approx. 304km/h).
The RS7 features a twin-turbo 4-litre V8 TFSI petrol engine shared with the recently announced RS6 Avant. This unit promises 560hp at 5,700 rpm, red lining at 6,700 rpm. Peak torque of 516 lb ft is available from 1,750 rpm.
