In the area of performance, the car comes with the stock RS 7’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, which delivers 560 horsepower and will rocket the svelte four-door coupe from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. The engine is matched to a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and can drop down to just four cylinders during low-load situations to help save fuel.
The RS 7 Dynamic Edition also gets Audi’s Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) adjustable dampers as standard. These feature three stages of adjustment and are hydraulically cross-linked and integrated into the Audi drive select system and work in conjunction with Audi’s sport differential on the rear axle and a speed-sensitive electronic steering system to aid handling.
Now comes the parts that really inflate the car’s sticker. Special items for the RS 7 Dynamic Edition include 21-inch wheels in gloss black, red brake calipers, and carbon fiber elements including a splitter, rear diffuser and engine cover. Buyers have four exterior colors to choose from: Ibis White, Suzuka Gray, Daytona Gray and Phantom Black.
For its interior, the RS 7 Dynamic Edition gets Black Valcona leather trim with Crimson Red contrast stitching and matching seat belts. Additional Crimson Red stitching can be found on the dashboard, gear shifter surround, center and door armrests as well as along the center console. A little carbon fiber also adds to the sporting theme.
The Audi RS 7 Dynamic Edition hits dealers this summer.
