Audi decided to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its TDI technology in style and as a result it revealed the A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI Competition Edition model. The new model comes with new modifications in the charging and camshafts of the 3.0-liter TDI biturbo diesel engine that boost the power by 7 hp (5 kW) to 326 hp (240 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque between 1,400 and 2,800 rpm.

With these numbers, the 2015 A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI Competition Edition sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. Despite the impressive performances, fuel consumption remains low at 6.1 liters of fuel for every 100 kilometers (38.6 US mpg), while CO2 emissions are 162 grams per kilometer.

Moreover, the special edition model features the S line sport package, which also includes lowering the body by 20 millimeters (0.8 in), as well as 20-inch five-spoke W design with black painted sides. Behind the wheels are the red brake calipers and 17-inch brake discs.

Furthermore, the vehicle features V6 T emblems on the fenders, black exterior mirror housings and high-gloss black tailpipe trims. Audi will offer the A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI Competition Edition with a choice of three colours: Daytona Gray, Misano Red, Nardo Gray and Sepang Blue.

The interior is designed in black and it features sport seats upholstered in fine Valcona leather in black or lunar silver and decorated with S line embossing. S sport seats with contrasting stitching in Misano Red or Agate Gray are available as an option. Pricing starts at 72,000 euros, while shipping will begin this fall.
