If wished to live the life of a superstar in India, everyone would prefer to become Salman Khan for a day. As his image revolves distinctly in the market, attached with the practicality for most rather than opulence – just like his attitude, his taste for cars too comes the same pathway. Audi RS7, a one from his collection is the right option to name as of now. And since he owned such an example after experiencing his hands behind it in the movie Jai Ho, the car became sensation for one more reason – the star himself too launched it in the country.
Now, it is time for a change to RS7, and we are seriously disappointed about the Salman Khan, as the one he possesses will soon become ‘pre-facelift’. Audi scheduled the launch of RS7 facelift in India on May 11, 2015.
Powered by the same 4.0-litre petrol V8 TFSI engine it sends the max power of 560hp and 700Nm of torque mated to a eight-speed automatic transmission. Traction being sent to all four wheels via Audi’s Torsen (torque sensing) 4WD system allows it to stay affirm around corners. Such technicalities drive it to handle 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds before it whips out the max speed of 250km/h. Buyers can also notch it up to the 280km/h or 305km/h by opting for the Dynamic package. For a better everyday dynamics, this German automaker had deployed cylinder on demand system which shuts up to four-cylinder depending upon the need, and transfers the load to rest four which results economical figure on the scale of fuel-efficiency, as clicked 10.7 km/l (in EU driving test).
Now, talking about the business for which Audi is rolling out its new RS7, we mean the cosmetic side, it happens to load the single frame front grille which nowadays is the family design language of the maker. Furthermore, the head and tail lamps too are reworked, where the units at front got new graphics and option of Matrix units lays in the optional list. The cluster at tail lamps too is reworked and the dynamic signal lights now make way up to this model of Audi. More of the changes at front like sharper frame structure and redesigned air inlets pull it up for the edgy attitude.
Once inside the cabin, there is a pool of change starting in RS7 with the new instrument panel, revised paddle shifters, brand new air con controls and MMI with Nvidia graphic chip. For the international market, RS7 facelift is rolled off the sales floor in following colours: Floret Silver, Sepang Blue, Mythos Black and Glacier White.
Thus, that’s not all, one can also make out the new performance sedan of Audi by the freshly cut alloy wheels.
