Abt unleashes 720hp upgrade for the overlooked audi rs7 2 1

The RS7, a powerful V8 saloon, has often been overshadowed by its estate counterpart, but Abt is here to change that with their new RS7-S, an upgrade that boosts the car’s power to a staggering 720hp.

Audi’s hot Avants are renowned for their performance and versatility, often leaving the saloons and coupes in their shadow. The RS7, despite being a stellar performer, tends to be forgotten amidst the fanfare for the RS6. But now, as the era of V8 Audis nears its end, the RS7-S arrives to remind us of its capabilities.

Abt's RS7-S is not as radical as their -R models but still represents a significant upgrade. The car’s power jumps from 600hp to 720hp, thanks to enhancements in the ECU and exhaust system. Torque sees a similar increase, reaching a massive 700lb-ft. These figures suggest that the RS7-S can hit 62mph in about 3 seconds and potentially reach speeds around 200mph. These numbers are extraordinary for a five-seat executive car.

Abt also includes coilovers and anti-roll bars in the RS7-S for improved handling and driving dynamics. The 22-inch wheels, though seemingly detrimental to ride quality, are designed to be weight-optimized, potentially reducing unsprung mass. The aerodynamic package adds glossy carbon blades, lips, skirts, spoilers, and RS7-S badges, giving the car a more aggressive look without overdoing it. The new rear diffuser complements the quad 102mm exhaust tips, adding to the vehicle’s sporty appeal.

Inside, the RS7-S features additional carbon elements and red ‘RS7-S’ accents, ensuring it stands out from the standard models. The price for this transformation is substantial: €48,900 (£41,650) including VAT and Abt warranty, with an additional €5,940 (£5,050) for fitting. This brings the total close to £50k. Considering that older RS7 models have depreciated to around £60k, this upgrade offers a compelling package for those seeking a high-performance Audi.

The Abt RS7-S ensures that the RS7 doesn’t fade into obscurity. With its significant power boost and thoughtful enhancements, it’s poised to be remembered alongside the beloved RS6.
