Artist renders this 2019 Audi RS7, and it looks so powerful

Last week, Audi’s luxury sportback, the 2019 Audi A7 made its debut. It isn’t only sleeker than its predecessor, but it is overall more refined too. After making its first public appearance, A7 fans quickly got to work and began rendering the said model, giving it even more performance cues. One of the renderings we noticed was that of a German artist named Tobias Büttner. Digitally, he gave the new A7 added RS performance pieces and it looks pretty mean.

Beginning with the front fascia, the new angular grille has been upgraded into an RS performance part. The standard base model comes with vertical slats, which have been changed into a honeycomb-style plastic mesh, the same with the side vents too. The front fender now gets a “Quattro” logo that’s displayed on the front fender, while the RS badge can be found on the grille.

As you can see in the photos, the 2019 Audi A7 rides on a new set of wheels that has been borrowed from the RS5 Sportback. The rear now has a more aggressive diffuser that has been given massive dual exhaust tips. To cap off the exterior look, the car has been lowered, and has also been finished in Audi’s signature Nogaro Blue paint job - making it look sportier than the standard model. The package may not look very dramatic overall, but it looks like it is ready for production.

2019 Audi RS7 gets rendered

Audi is now working on an all new A7 Sportback along with the new the RS7 and S7 variants. That said, it’s still a couple of years more before an RS7 will come strutting its way into the showrooms.

While waiting, Peisert Design has a vision of what the next Audi RS7 would look like. Taking its cues from the spy shots and leaked images of the new A7, the designer has adopted the same edgy design into the creative visual art which includes Audi’s more aggressive front grille and pointed headlamps.

While the rendering artist hasn’t touched the current model’s rear diffuser and tailpipes in oval shape, the redesigned tail lamps has been extended all the way to the Sportback’s wider rear end. Aside from these, Peisert has imagined the new RS7 to come with larger air intakes which is also flanked by black chrome lower lip at the front.

Audi introduces RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback Performance models

Audi’s RS range has two new ‘performance’ models -- the RS 7 Sportback and RS 6 Avant. These two additions make the RS badge proud with a 45PS increase in power to 605PS and 50Nm additional torque resulting in 750Nm total torque.

While it improves the output, resulting to a 3.7-second record for a 0-60mph sprint, the two models boast of having excellent fuel economy the RS is known for. In fact, it has the same low fuel consumption figures of its ‘standard’ counterparts that are the best in their class.

The peak 605PS power output and maximum torque of 700Nm are due to the 4.0-litre TFSI engine. But it comes with the overboost function capable of increasing torque to as high as 750Nm. For those interested, the RS 6 Avant and the RS 7 Sportback will be available in the UK for orders starting in November with the first deliveries scheduled for next February.

Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi AG Board Member for Technical Development, remarked that the feat -- achieved by the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept when it completed the Hockenheimring lap at racing speed while being driverless -- substantiates the skills of the carmaker’s development team in the field of piloted driving.

During the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) season finale, Audi showed the allure of piloted driving by having an Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept complete a lap on the Grand Prix track in Hockenheim. This was achieved at racing speed, sans a driver behind the steering wheel.

Even before the DTM season finale, Audi was already reaching its physical limit, having the ability to cruise on the asphalt without a driver. The Grand Prix track in Hockenheim served as an ideal place to demonstrate this capability, and the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept needed just more than two minutes to complete a lap.

Audi has just expanded its RS model lineup with the brand new RS7 Sportback and unveiled it at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Using a 4.0-liter TFSI twin-turbo V8, the RS7 Sportback carries 560 hp and 700 Nm of torque. As a result, it is capable to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed limited to 250 km/h or 155 mph.

With the optional dynamic package, the top speed is increased to 280 km/h (174 mph) while with the dynamic package plus the top speed is increased to 305 km/h or 190 mph. Yet the new top model of the model series consumes on average just 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 km (24.00 US mpg). The engine found on the RS7 Sportback features the cylinder on demand (COD) system, that is capable to deactivate cylinders 2,3,5 and 8 at low to medium loads and engine speeds.

This means that the engine acts as a four-cylinder until the driver accelerates more strongly again. As expected, the engine is mated as standard with the eight-speed tiptronic gearbox and drivers can choose between the modes D and S or change gears themselves using the shift paddles on the steering wheel or the selector lever.
