The new Audi RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback perform

That is what happens when Audi now launches the RS6 and RS7 in special performance versions.

In their press release, Audi is perhaps a little too clear when they begin the text with “Perfomance” meaning more performance.

But yes, that is exactly what this is about.

The new Audi RS7 Sportback performance and RS6 Avant Performance have received larger turbochargers and an increase in charge pressure from 2.4 to 2.6 bar in their 4.0-liter V8 biturmo TFSI engines. This should provide an increased engine output of 30 horsepower and 50 Nm higher torque compared to the standard version. Thus, the new versions land at 630 horsepower and 850 Nm. They should do 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, which is two tenths faster than the regular RS6 and RS7.

Top speed of 280 km/h

More power and less weight is, of course, an appreciated combination. And thanks to reduced insulation between the engine compartment and the interior, it makes the car eight kilograms lighter. In addition, it should provide a completely new sound experience from the engines.

Anyone who wants to cough up more money can buy the RS Dynamikpaket Plus. Then you get, among other things, carbon fiber ceramic brakes, which reduce the weight by another 34 kilos. With this package you also get a top speed of 305 km/h. Otherwise, the top speed is limited to 280 km/h in the standard version.

SEK 61,000 more expensive

On December 8, the Swedish order books open for these performance (which then means performance) edition variants of the Audi RS6 Avant and RS7 Sportback.

For both cars, this means a SEK 61,000 more expensive price tag compared to the basic models
