Watch This 950-HP Audi RS7 Breach The 200 MPH Mark On The Autobahn Like It’s No Big Deal
At around 206 mph, the car seems to hit a speed limiter even though it seems to have a lot of grunt leftby Sidd Dhimaan, on LISTEN 02:30
The folks at ‘AutoTopNL’ got hold of a tuned Audi RS7 and took it for a spin at the Autobahn. They have tested the same RS7 in the past as well, but back then it was tuned to make just 750 horses. This time, it makes 200 horses more and goes all the way up to 200 mph before losing breath. Care for some cargasm?
What’s The Car About?
The RS7 comes with a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine that puts out 591 horses and 590 pound-feet of torque in the standard form.
Here, it makes 950 horses and 848 pound-feet of torque.
It features bigger turbos this time around. It is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The gearbox is remapped to handle all the extra power
The host, Max, gave us a brief about the car. As stated earlier, it has been pumped up from 750 horses to 950. It used to be a Tango Red RS7, but the owner has now put a satin black wrap on it. It has the carbon-fiber exterior package, 22-inch Vossen forged wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, ceramic brakes with red calipers, and a lowering kit. It even has a Milltek decat exhaust system.
Watching From The Driver’s Point-of-View…
The video is recorded with a GoPro strapped on Max’s forehead. So, you get the driver’s view here. He takes it to the part of the Autobahn that has no speed limit. The Sportback crosses 186 mph (300 kph) multiple times.
The RS7 went all the way up to 206 mph (331 kph), but Max noted it hit a limiter there. This is a little surprising because when it has touched 332 kph before when it used to make 750 horses. This means the car has the potential to go well beyond 206 mph, but is held back by the speed governor.
Watch the RS7 stretch its legs below and let us know what you think about the car and the drive in the comments section.
