For the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Audi prepared the exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition. Set to arrive at the dealerships in the United States in early summer, this special edition comes with several highlights such as Crimson Red safety belts and stitching throughout the interior.
Priced at $146,045, including destination and delivery, the 2014 Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition offers Black Valcona leather seats that have the RS specific honeycomb stitch in Crimson Red matching the safety belts.
In addition, Crimson Red stitching can be found on the dashboard, gear shifter boot, center and door armrests but also on the center console. The exterior shows Tornado Red brake calipers with RS 7 logo but also big, 21-inch Gloss Black wheels. The elements that underline the vehicle’s performance are the carbon fiber splitter, air diffuser and carbon fiber engine cover.
For this special edition Audi will offer four exterior colors: Ibis White, Suzuka Gray metallic, Daytona Gray pearl, Phantom Black pearl. Moreover, the DRC suspension is also offered. For those who don’t know, this system utilizes three-stage adjustable dampers that are hydraulically cross-linked and integrated into the Audi drive select system.
A sport exhaust is offered, too. Under the hood, we find the twin-turbo 4.0 Liter TFSI V8 engine that generates 560 hp, enough to push it from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and to a top speed electronically limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h.
The V8 engine is capable to run in four-cylinder mode, when all that power is not needed, an as a result fuel efficiency is increased by 15 percent. The RS7 achieves a respectable EPA estimated MPG of 16 city/27 highway/19 combine. What’s more interesting is that this model is not subject to a gas guzzler tax.
