The Audi S7 Sportback is powered by the new 4.0 TFSI with 420 hp (309 kW) and 550 Nm of torque, the same engine as the Audi S6 and S6 Avant. The twin-turbo V8 accelerates the five-door coupe from 0-100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.9 seconds, and top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155.34 mph), with the fuel consumption of just 9.7 liters of fuel per 100 km (24.25 US mpg).
Power transmission in the Audi S7 Sportback is provided by the dynamic seven-speed S tronic and the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with a self-locking center differential and torque vectoring. The Audi S7 Sportback comes standard with the adaptive air suspension sport and the Audi drive select dynamics system.
The Audi S7 Sportback shows its sporty character in the interior, too. This can be seen in numerous details – the S badges, the red ring on the start-stop button, the S7 logo in the illuminated door sill trims, the aluminum strip on the S tronic selector lever and the aluminum shift paddles. The footrest and the pedals are made of stainless steel, and the soft keys of the MMI operating system are in an aluminum-look finish.
The Audi S7 Sportback is equipped height-adjustable S sport seats with power lumbar supports as standard. Comfort seats and regular seats are available as options. The backrests of the S sport seats are embossed with S logos.
Delivery of the Audi S7 Sportback is scheduled to begin in spring 2012. Among the standard equipment highlights are the xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights, the driver information system with color display and the versatile MMI radio plus audio and operating system. Both information hubs are easy to operate.
