New Delhi: German luxury car maker Audi on Monday launched the latest version of its popular sporty spearhead â€“ the new Audi RS 7 Sportback â€“ in India.
Priced at Rs 1.40 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai and Delhi) , the Audi RS 7 was unveiled by Joe King, Head, Audi India and is available at all Audi dealerships across India.
â€œEmbodying our philosophy of â€˜Vorsprung durch Technikâ€™, the Audi RS 7 Sportback is Audiâ€™s superlative illustration of sportiness, progressiveness and sophistication â€“ combining the practicality of a large, five-door Sportback with strengths and fun of a sportscar,â€ King said.
Audi has made no changes to the engine of the RS7, which is a 4.0-liter V8 Bi-Turbo TFSI unit producing 560 hp and 700 Nm of torque. The drive is put through all wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission and Audiâ€™s Quattro all-wheel drive system.
The 2015 RS7 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds before hitting a top-speed which can be optionally increased to 305 km/h from 250 km/h. Thanks to a COD (Cylinder on Demand) system, the RS7 achieves 10.2 km/l under European testing conditions.
