In the city or on the highway, the 2018 Audi RS 7 performance just has the remarkable ability to render even the most seasoned drivers speechless.

quattro® all-wheel drive

The Audi RS 7 features advanced quattro® all-wheel drive technology. The system has a variable torque split that can intuitively send power to where it’s needed, helping enhance performance and traction as road conditions demand. With the available rear sport differential, torque is actively distributed between the rear wheels, helping to propel around curves while neutralizing understeer or oversteer.

Adaptive air suspension

Standard on the RS 7 is the continuously variable RS-tuned adaptive air suspension, while electronically controlled damper systems adjust the body height of the vehicle based on driving circumstances. On rough roads at low speeds, the suspension will raise slightly to improve comfort, while at highway speeds it will sit lower for more dynamic handling

Audi drive select

With Audi drive select on the RS 7, it's easier than ever to take charge of the road ahead. Four modes — Dynamic, Comfort, Auto and even an Individual setting — adjust your vehicle's steering, transmission shifts and throttle response, allowing you to cater the drive to your taste and take advantage of the road. It's a definitive way to show the road who's in charge.

Eight-speed Tiptronic® transmission

The eight-speed Tiptronic® transmission of the 2018 Audi RS 7 takes the sporty characteristics of a manual gearbox and injects it with the advantages of an automatic, to create ultra-quick shifting that keeps up with the horsepower it harnesses.
