    A prototype for the Audi Sport version of the recently launched second-generation A7 Sportback has been spotted. Yes, you’re looking at the gestation of a new RS 7 sledgehammer. The current model is one of the most potent 4-doors on the market and this new one's set to lift the bar even higher. 2020 Audi RS 7 Sportback spy video from Motor Authority on Vimeo. Naturally, the RS 7 Sportback closely resembles the A7 Sportback on which it is based. There are some subtle differences, however. For example, the fender extensions are necessary for a widened track. The tester is also wearing the...

    Next Audi RS 7 to gain 700-horsepower hybrid variant

    Hybrid technology hardly came from performance-oriented beginnings. After all, the first mass-market hybrids' sole goal was to improve fuel economy and curb emissions. While this remains their primary goal today, brilliant engineering minds have worked wonders in another area. Now, hybrid...

    2017 Audi RS 7 Performance first drive review: living with a $137K hatchback

    Audi Sport's slogan is "Born on the track. Built for the road." While most of us would love to test the limits of any Audi Sport model on a racetrack, we'd also be happy to merely have the opportunity to slide behind the wheel of any RS model for a week, especially if it's a $137,000 RS 7...

    Meet the Audi RS 7 from hell

    Usually when heading down the often expensive path of modifying your car, one of the aims isn’t attempting to make the car look and sound like the spawn of Satan. We’re not sure if that was actually one of the aims of this Audi RS 7 project, though it certainly looks that way due to the...

    2016 Audi RS 7 Performance and S8 Plus first drive review

    It wasn't that long ago that 300 horsepower was exceptional, 400 was the domain of Corvettes, and 500 was reserved for supercars. Then we saw a 662-horsepower Mustang and 707-horsepower Hellcats, and soon the 600-horsepower club had double-digit members. Add two more cars to that club for the 2016...

  • 2016 Audi RS 7 Performance

    Audi is upping the potency of its already extreme RS 6 Avant and RS 7 by introducing new Performance models that boast increased engine output and numerous RS-spec equipment as standard. The engine remains Audi’s ubiquitous turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, whose output here has been bumped up to 605 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, up from 560 hp and 516 lb-ft in the stock RS 6 and RS 7. With the new output, the cars will accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 3.7 seconds, down from 3.9 seconds for the stock RS 6 and RS 7, and from 0-124 mph in 12.1 seconds, down from 13.5 seconds for the...

    Audi RS 7 Autonomous Concept Drops 880 Pounds, Laps Sonoma Raceway

    Step by step, a fully autonomous Audi is edging closer to reality. Late last year we saw the brand with the four rings send an RS 7 concept around Germany’s Hockenheimring without anyone onboard. Impressively, the car lapped the circuit in a similar time achieved with a professional driver...

    2016 Audi RS 7 Preview

    Following the debut of the updated Audi A7 and S7 models at the Leipzig Auto Show in Germany a week ago, Audi has now revealed the updated version of the bahn-storming RS 7 model. There’s no additional power under the hood, which is fine by us since the RS 7 was all-new just a year ago, but...

  • 2014 Audi RS 7 Dynamic Edition

    Audi has unveiled a new special edition RS 7 at the 2014 New York Auto Show, but if you’re interested you had better be willing to pay because the car will cost you quite a bit more than even the R8 supercar. The new special edition is called the RS 7 Dynamic Edition, and it’s priced from $146,045 including destination, which is up on the $116,150 starting price of the R8 in V-8 guise and well past the $105,795 starting price of the regular RS 7.

    2014 Audi RS 7: Best Car To Buy 2014 Nominee

    There are many luxurious sedans on the roads these days. There are even many very fast ones. There are a few that do both luxury and the performance exceedingly well. But none of them look as primally dashing, as sensually satisfying as the 2014 Audi RS 7. Of course, the RS 7 started with the...

    2014 Audi RS 7 First Drive

    I'm no Breeder, but Kim Deal and I have at least one thing in common. I've been looking for one divine hammer. Nailed it. What you see here, is what a series of Dutch tourists in lightweight RVs saw through a real-world Adobe echo effect. It's the RS 7, the most outrageous roadgoing Audi of the...

    2014 Audi RS 7 Priced From $105,795

    The battle of the mega-four-door-coupes is heating up with the arrival of the 2014 Audi RS 7. BMW's M6 Gran Coupe and Mercedes-Benz's CLS63 AMG have already staked their claim to buyers' hearts and wallets, but the RS 7 may not have too tough a time winning its own fans.

  • 2014 Audi RS 5 Cabriolet

    As anyone who’s driven Audi’s S6 and S7 models will tell you, the cars are distinctly different in personality, which helps Audi build a business case for both in the U.S. product line. If there’s room for an A6, an A7, an S6 and an S7, surely there's room for an RS 6 and RS 7, too, right? Not necessarily. Motor Trend reports that the U.S. will be getting the RS 7 Sportback, which will come to market with an updated version of Audi’s 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 (currently used in the S8 sedan). As for the “when” part, it won’t be in the immediate...
