2013 AUDI S7
The all-new Audi S7 combines thrilling performance, stunning design, and intelligent efficiency technologies in a package that further enhances Audi’s exciting new A7 five-door coupe.
The power of the twin-turbo V8 is delivered via the dynamic seven-speed S tronic transmission and quattro permanent all-wheel drive with a self-locking center differential and torque vectoring. The grip of the quattro system is dynamically enhanced through the sport differential, which actively distributes the power between the rear wheels and enables superior cornering and acceleration as the driver exits a turn. The S7 comes standard with air suspension sport with variable damping and lowers the body by 10 millimeters (0.39 in) for improved handling without compromising comfort.
The Audi S7 is fitted with the new 4.0 liter TFSI with 420 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. The twin-turbo V8 accelerates the five-door coupe from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds, and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. Groundbreaking levels of efficiency can be attributed to the design using Audi’s ultra lightweight technology. This aluminum-hybrid construction includes lightweight components such as aluminum body panels and a steel frame.
The design of the Audi S7 is seamless. The long engine hood, the long wheelbase and the short overhangs create perfect proportions. The low, dynamically tensioned roof line gives the five-door model the character of a coupe. At highway speeds, a rear spoiler extends from the rear hatch to improve stability.
In line with other S models, exterior differentiation designed to signify a more performance oriented model includes the single-frame grille, front bumper, side mirrors in aluminum color, sills, rear bumper, diffuser and the tailpipes.The S7 shows its performance character in the interior, too.
