Audi RS7 (manufacturer)
We already thought you wouldn't come.
In a world that is becoming more and more electrified, presenting two extreme versions with zero electric reinforcement is not a given, but Audi still believes that there is a demand for the ultra-muscle versions of their two saloon cars and is landing the RS7 and RS6 Avant in their extreme performance versions.
Like all models of Audi's sports division (except the R8) both cars are based on their regular models, namely the Audi A7 Sportback and the Audi A6 Avant (which is a station wagon in Audi).
However, to meet the ultra-sporty vocation, they go through a cosmetic workshop and intensive fitness training.
Externally, both carry the design package of the RS models, on the extended wheel arches, skirts, spoilers and more.
In addition, a matte black exterior design package and red calipers for the brakes behind the 22-inch rims.

In the passenger cabins, in front of the driver, there is Audi's familiar array of screens - 12.3 on the dashboard, 10.1 for multimedia and 8.6 for the climate control and vehicle systems.
B&O audio system, the driver and passenger in sport plus seats (heating, ventilation, electricity and reverse leather), soft closing doors and more.
But I have a feeling that if you are interested in these cars, the equipment list is nice, but not the main thing.
Also the fact that they have a safety system that includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure correction, automatic braking, perimeter cameras, warning of a vehicle in a "dead zone" - is less interesting.
Nor in the station wagon you can load 548 liters of equipment and in the RS7 you will have a slightly smaller volume of 523 liters.
Okay, so let's get to the point.

The driving force in both cars is Audi's V8 engine with a volume of 4 liters with 630 hp and 86.7 kg.
For those who have not experienced this engine, it is difficult to understand how these numbers connect to the shiver in the hands when he drives and the kick in the back when he accelerates.
The numbers are a bit helpful to understand - 3.4 seconds to 100 km/h in both cars and a limited top speed of 250 km/h, limited but removable at least abroad.
And to put all this power down, they of course have permanent dual drive, an 8-speed gearbox Planetary automatic and 285 mm wide tires with a section 30, as mentioned on a 22 inch rim.
To allow their two tons to turn well, there are also air shocks, progressive steering and a central differential that normally routes the power in a ratio of 40:60 in favor of the rear wheels and with skid detection and depending on the driving situation and the grip conditions between 75% to the front wheels and 85% to the rear wheels.

These two extreme cars also fit into an unusual market where they don't really meet direct competition.
Without a local BMW M5 station wagon or Mercedes E63AMG station wagon configuration the RS6 Avant is quite unique in offering high-end performance in a useful chassis.
And that is also the story of the RS7 Performance.
Without a direct response from BMW and when the 4-door coupe version of Mercedes only comes in the CLS55AMG model which is significantly weaker than it - they are more or less playing against an empty net.
And speaking of rate, we hope you didn't make your money from the dollar rate, because these two cars are not cheap.
NIS 1.1 million for the RS6 Performance Avant and NIS 1.129 million for the RS7 Performance.
