German automaker Audi has further widened options for performance car enthusiasts with the introduction of RS7 Performance at a price of Rs 1,59,65,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new variant will be offered alongside the standard Audi RS7 which is priced at Rs 1.46 crore. The vehicle does not get any design upgrade, with the changes limited to a tweaked engine to deliver higher performance.

The Audi RS7 Performance gets the existing 4.0-litre TFSI turbocharged petrol engine, which has been tweaked to produce an additional 44bhp making the overall figure a mammoth 605bhp along with an even more impressive 700Nm of torque. The powerful version comes mated to an 8-speed tiptronic automatic transmission which powers all four wheels via the quattro drive system. The company claims to offer the overboost function which allows the driver to temporarily hike torque to 750 Nm.

On the design aspect, the vehicle features sportily designed bumpers with large air inlets upfront and the heavily profiled diffuser insert at the rear. The vehicle gets a gloss black honeycomb grille typical of the RS models and the flared side sills as well. Additionally, the exterior is distinguished by a quattro logo on the air inlet duct and add-on parts in matt titanium look. With over 20 per cent of aluminum being used in its construction, the Performance version is stated to be about 15 per cent lighter than the standard version. This enables the vehicle to sprint from 0-100kmph in just about 3.7-seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 280kmph, which can be pushed to 305kmph with the dynamic package plus.     

The interior comes with premium leather upholstery, MMI infotainment system and a Bose Surround system. The automaker also offers two optional styling packages – matt aluminum and carbon, thereby offering more customization options. Exclusively available on the new Audi RS 7 Performance is the Matt Titanium styling package with inlet funnels. In addition to the existing colours, the new Audi RS7 is also available in exclusive shade of – Ascari Blue.
