The RS models of the Audi line-up keep on getting better without any hiccups. The exterior and interior of the 2021 Audi RS7 Sportback are designed to amaze the observer, and what else is left for the owner of the beautiful vehicle? Broadly speaking, there are many changes and a lot of new materials and technologies incorporated into the car’s design to achieve all the beauty combined with durability. See for yourself below!


The Audi RS7 Sportback is expected to have great performance when driving on the road or on the track. It will use a 4.0-liter eight-cylinder engine to produce 591 horsepower and 800 Newton-meters. Both the engine block and cylinder head are to be produced out of Aluminum-alloy.

The fuel will enter the power unit through 32 valves using the Audi valve lift-system and variable valve timing. The TFSI (Turbo Fuel Stratified Injection) system is working together with the turbo to help the automobile do 0 – 100 [km/h] in 3.6 seconds. The top speed of the RS7 is normally 280[km/h], and optionally, with the ceramic brakes, it tops up at almost 306[km/h].

The RS7 uses an Eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and a quattro all-wheel drive system. In addition, the 2021 RS7 has a sport rear differential. Dynamic all-wheel steering, another interesting detail, assures better handling when turning at low and high speeds.

Auto Trendy’s take:

Audi is renowned as one of the best OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) in the automotive world and it has a great portfolio of many models. For us, at Auto Trendy, it has always been a pleasure observing car manufacturers competing in many different market segments. That speaks of the company’s skills to convert and utilize research and innovation in different perspectives. Finally, since sport has always been modern, and the new automotive trend is electrification, we would like to see what Audi can achieve in those two directions simultaneously.
