The new ABT Sportsline “Drivestyle” Coupe Audi RS 7
Seven-hundred ponies are ready under the hood.
The Audi RS 7 is a rocket. Right from the factory, the 4.0 TFSI engine churns out 560 horsepower and sends the sleek coupe-like sports car to triple-digit speeds with ease. The factory performance is astonishing in itself, but the really incredible thing is that the engine still holds untapped potential. ABT Sportsline was able to tap into the hidden power with a couple of upgrade programs that puts the RS 7’s performance in supercar territory.
“As you can tell from our car’s number plate, this four-door coupé has at least 666 hp or 490 kW,“ says CEO Hans-Jürgen Abt. “This is much more than the serial 560 hp or 412 kW, which isn’t low to begin with.“
The 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 engine is ready to erupt with power thanks to ABT Sportsline. The pictured car sports the ABT Power “New Generation” upgrade kit that pushes output to a devilish 666 horsepower and 612 lb-ft. of torque thanks to a standalone software unit. This also comes with an electronically-limited 186 mph top speed.
For those that want even more power, ABT Sportsline offers the Power S “New Generation” tune for the Audi RS 7’s 4.0 TFSI engine paired up with a matching stainless steel exhaust system. The upgrade pumps up output by 25-percent to a whopping 700 horsepower and 649 lb-ft. of torque and allows the RS 7 “Drivestyle” Coupe to reach an electronically-limited top speed of 199 mph. As part of 700-horsepower engine upgrade, ABT Sportsline offers a stainless steel rear muffler system that unleashes a fierce roar.
In terms of style, the lone modification made to the body of the “Drivestyle” Coupe is a carbon fiber rear spoiler to aid in generating downforce for better stability. Customers also have the option of installing ABT alloy wheels with corresponding spacers and performance tires for added grip. The German company offers their 20-inch ER-C in silver bullet-look finish or the 21-inch DR alloys in gunmetal to create the perfect stance.
All of the upgrades featured on the ABT Sportsline “Drivestyle” Coupe are available for all Audi RS 7 models. Pricing has not been released.
