The latest iteration of Audi RS7 by ABT is one that gives the word ‘overpowered’ a whole new meaning. The standard RS7 with its 560-hp and 700 Nm V8 engine is plenty fast enough by anyone’s standard. The car’s main problem is the lack of feel and thrill you expect from a super saloon. Still, ABT thinks a few more horses will solve the issues.
So they came up with this new power package that boosts the out of the 4.0 liter bi-turbo engine to 700 horsepower and 880 Nm of torque. In doing so, the kit’s bespoke software also removes the top speed limited, enabling the RS7 to reach 320 km/h. For those who may find that a bit scary, ABT offers a less powerful version with 666 horsepower, 830 Nm of torque, and a top speed of 305 km/h.
The price of the 700-hp package is 11.809 Euros, while the 666-hp version costs a more reasonable 6.909 Euros.
If we were to tune the Audi RS7, we’d leave the engine as it is and convert the car to rear-wheel-drive. That would make things a lot more exciting. But hey, that wouldn’t be very practical. Besides the engine upgrade, Audi RS7 by ABT also gets a range of 20 and 21-inch wheels costing well over 5,000 Euros, a sport exhaust, and some interior mods like special floor mats and illuminated sills. They leave the exterior pretty much standard.
