    • Official: Audi reveals the 2014 RS7 at the Detroit Auto Show - 560 horsepower 4.0 TFSI Twin Turbo V8

      Here is what we all knew was coming, the new 2014 Audi RS7. This makes the for the third of the four Audi RS models Audi stated were set to be revealed this year. The other two being the new C7 Audi RS6 and the Audi RS5. That leaves one model left which is an SUV and which will either be Q3 or Q5 based. Just like the RS6 the new RS7 has 560 horsepower from the 4.0 TFSI Twin Turbo direct injected motor which is mated to an 8-speed automatic.


      No dual clutch transmission like in the S6? Bummer. Another downer is that we will not be getting an RS6 sedan. It's RS7 only for the North American market folks. Those that wanted this power and the RS handling and looks in the A6 will not be getting their wish. Bittersweet.

      The RS7 itself though is a very nice design and if the Audi S8 is any indication the performance will be exemplary. Expect mid to 11's in the 1/4 mile with trap speeds in the 123 mile per hour range.

      With the new RS7 coming to play as well as the facelifted E63 AMG and CLS63 AMG BMW's time in the sun with the F10 M5 appears to be over very quickly. Should be an epic battle between the M6, RS7, E/CLS63 AMG, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo for supremacy.

        Audi already does the A6 and A7 so I don't see your point. S6/S7, etc.

        The RS6 avant does have more aggressive look and stance.

        It's a HUGE step up. I don't know if most people realize it. They were the red-headed stepchild of the German car world for a looooong while.

        I like everything but the RS7 styling. Oh well, not for me I guess.

        Is something wrong with me? Why have I been so tempted lately by Audi? 5 years ago I didn't care about them. I test drove an 08 RS4 a couple years ago before my M3 and never even thought of it until recently. Where did this come from? I'm in love with these new Audi's. I can definitely see myself driving a new S4.
