2020 Audi RS7 Sportback With Nearly 1,000 Horsepower Hits 226 MPH
Audi RS models put performance first, and the 2020 RS7 Sportback is no exception. With a 4.0-liter V8 twin turbocharger under the hood, propelling supercar performance levels – 591 horsepower (440 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (799 Newton meters) of torque – the family sedan powers 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in an Audi claimed 3.6 seconds. But it is not fast for some, who can opt for an optimized version which delivers nearly 1000 hp (745 kW).
The RS7 Sportback tuned in the video above comes from HGP, which has wrung more than 948 hp (706 kW) and 921 lb-ft (1,250 Newton meters) of torque. The upgrades are extensive and include improved turbochargers, a new intake, an improved air filter and a modified exhaust system, which fit well with each other through software tuning. All you have to do is look at the high-speed driving of the sedan on the German highway to see how powerful it is.
The tuned RS7 has no trouble crossing the 200 mph (321 km / h) mark while traveling at 226 mph (363 km / h). A series of statistics at the start of the video says the Audi will reach 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and go from 96 mph (100 km / h) to 192 mph (200 km / h) in 5.5 seconds. All of this performance is not cheap – the car costs around € 200,000 (around $ 223,500 at the current exchange rate). It’s quite a price premium even if the regular RS7 Sportback starts in the low range of $ 100,000.

If you watch the video, you will notice that the RS7 never shifts to eighth gear, instead reaching 226 mph in seventh. That puts the top speed of the sedan somewhere above that, which is pretty impressive considering its big beast of car. It’s fast, quick and there is room for children. What more could you want?
