Not that the Audi RS 7 Sportback, a beast of 600 HP and 800 Nm of torque, needs some power injection. But for the German preparer ABT it is never enough and you have decided to offer your own vision of the coupe sedan materialized in this limited edition to 125 units and baptized as ABT RS7-R.
On the menu we find a sportier suit, in addition to the relevant power injection. In short, a vitaminized RS 7 Sportback, which joins the latest additions to the Bavarian specialist's catalog such as the Audi SQ7 or the Audi S6 TDI.
If Captain Phasma were a car …
Starting with what is not seen, this ABT RS7-R increases the power of V8 4.0 TFSI of the RS 7 Sportback, which is also mild-hybrid, thanks to the ABT Power R unit, with which it goes on to perform 740 hp and 920 Nm of maximum torque. In addition, ABT also offers up to two coilover adjustable sport suspension options and adds roll bars.
The specialist does not reveal figures, but it is expected that this delivery injection will improve its performance: the original model accelerates from standstill to 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds and its maximum speed is set at 250 km / h, although it can go up to 280 km / h with the Dynamic package or 305 km / h with the Dynamic Plus.
In terms of aesthetics, this vision of the RS 7 Sportback adds several aerodynamic elements on the front, such as the lip, the upper frame of the grille or the fins on its side, as well as a rear diffuser in which four exhaust outlets are integrated, located two by two.
There are also air intakes on the side behind the front wheels, new housings for the rear-view mirrors and sportier side skirts. All these elements are conceived in carbon fiber sight. The set is completed with 22 inch BT High Performance HR rims, which reveal high-performance brakes with red calipers.
In the cabin we also find news. ABT offers a steering wheel in carbon fiber finish, material that also wears the gear knob, while the seats combine this light material on the bottom with a perforated black leather upholstery and Alcantara, and contrasting red stitching, also embroidering the name of the preparation in red.
In addition, ABT adds new mats and the limited unit number, from 1 to 125, is superimposed on the door sills and on the central armrest, an element where we also find the logo of the preparer.
