The most powerful member in the current A7 series is the new 2012 Audi S7 Sportback, which had its public debut today at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2011.
The luxury coupe features the new 4.0 TFSI with 420hp and 550Nm of maximum torque. The twin-turbo V8 accelerates the five-door coupe from 0 to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds, and top speed is limited to 250km/h. The eight-cylinder uses Audi’s “cylinder on demand” technology under part load for a lower fuel consumption.
The engine is linked to a seven-speed S-tronic gearbox. The adaptive air suspension sport, the Audi drive select dynamics system and quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with a self-locking center differential and torque vectoring come standard. The optional sport differential from Audi distributes the power in variable proportions between the rear wheels.
S7 Sportback details can be found at the single-frame grille, the front bumper, the side mirrors, the sills, the rear bumper, the diffuser and the tailpipes.
2012 Audi S7 Sportback with a new sporty engine and a power-train adoption from S6 will certainly be a big performer on roads. A7’s sporty seats and three-spoke steering wheel with interior comfort features will add to the sportiness and pleasure of driving. Looking forward to drive cars like this one.
