are fast cars and very fast cars. And when the word “Performance” is added on
to them, well they sprint like nobody’s business. The Performance version of
the Audi RS 7 Sportback is no different. This is a more powerful variant of the
RS 7 which in a way is Audi’s way of telling the BMW Ms and the Mercedes-Benz
AMGs that its arsenal is loaded too. Audi has squeezed in a lot more horses in
Performance version from 560 in the Sportback to as many as 605 in this!
the engine produces the same 700Nm of torque, it now gets an overboost function
which enables the driver with another 50Nm for a temporary period. The
overboost helps the engine to belt out a total of 750Nm from 2500-7500rpm,
while peak power of 605hp comes in at 6100rpm and lasts till 6800 revs.
moment you press the start button, the 4 -litre V 8 turbocharged petrol engine
roars to life and you can feel the horses inside tugging ferociously at their
reins to let go. A gentle tap of the accelerator make the twin exhausts scream
out to signal the beginning of a great drive. I shift the gear to “Drive” mode
and floor the accelerator pedal. I can feel the mighty G forces pushing me back
into my seat almost forcefully. And then all you can see is the car gobbling
the road ahead with ferocious tenacity.
Audi RS 7 Sportback Performance is a dynamo with impeccable manners. It does a 0-100kmph in 3.7 seconds and can
achieve a top speed of 305kmph. To get the real top speed of 305kmph one needs
to purchase Audi's Dynamic Plus package. Not to forget an unused airstrip to
test its top speed too!
RS 7 Sportback Performance also gets Audi's trademark Quattro setup. This car
is well-behaved and even when you put it though a corner at high speed it will
not bring its tail out. A 4-corner adaptive air suspension caters to a very
seamless ride experience which is complimented by a smart damping control setup.
The engine has also been mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox which is silky smooth.
has added its Cylinder On Demand (COD) to the RS 7 Sportback Performance. When
needed all 8 cylinders of the engine run at optimum performance. However, while
in the city or driving casually, the COD will utilise only 4 cylinders. This
improves fuel efficiency, but not the way commuter cars do. This car gives you
just about 10.56km per litre of petrol. And the more you floor the accelerator
indiscriminately, the worse the fuel average!
everything on the interior and exterior remains more or less the same when
compared to the RS 7 Sportback. But the steering now gets the addition of a
toggle for drive modes (Auto, Comfort, Dynamic
and Individual) while on the outside only 21 inch rims are available
unlike the 20's optional on the standard version.
Performance version of the Audi RS 7 Sportback is more of a bold statement from
Audi to take on the performance cars from the stables of its competitors. With
so much power stacked so brilliantly inside its engine, the RS 7 Sportback
Performance is the right Bazooka for peace times!
