The Audi S7 is fitted with the new 4.0 liter TFSI® with 420 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. The twin-turbo V8 accelerates the five-door coupe from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds, and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. Groundbreaking levels of efficiency can be attributed to the design using Audi’s ultra lightweight technology. This aluminum-hybrid construction includes lightweight components such as aluminum body panels and a steel frame.

A number of additional technologies also contribute to the overall efficiency of the S7, including the recuperation and the new cylinder on demand system. When the V8 deactivates four cylinders under partial load, active engine mounts counteract vibration while the active noise control (ANC) system minimizes any undesirable sounds from the interior cabin. Four microphones integrated into the headliner monitor noise levels in the cabin and actively cancel unwanted sounds via the main speakers and subwoofer.

The engagement and disengagement of the cylinder on demand is virtually undetectable yet delivers great efficiency benefits while still having the full power of the twin-turbo V8 available to the driver. It is these three systems — cylinder on demand, active engine mounts and ANC — that make an effective solution in terms of efficiency and refinement.

The power of the twin-turbo V8 is delivered via the dynamic seven-speed S tronic® transmission and quattro® permanent all-wheel drive with a self-locking center differential and torque vectoring. The grip of the quattro system is dynamically enhanced through the sport differential, which actively distributes the power between the rear wheels and enables superior cornering and acceleration as the driver exits a turn.

The S7 comes standard with air suspension sport with variable damping and lowers the body by 10 millimeters (0.39 in) for improved handling without compromising comfort. The S7 is fitted with internally ventilated front and rear disc brakes with matte black calipers and S7 logos. The S7 is available with 19-inch cast aluminum wheels in an S-specific five parallel-spoke design fitted with 255/40-series tires or stunning S7-unique 20-inch parallel-spoke “Star” design wheels with 265/35-series performance tires.

The Audi drive select system adjusts several key systems to accommodate a more dynamic or comfortable driving style. It modifies throttle response, shift points, steering boost of the electromechanical steering and the characteristics of the adaptive air suspension. Drive select has four settings that include Auto, Dynamic, Comfort and Individual.

The design of the Audi S7 is seamless. The long engine hood, the long wheelbase and the short overhangs create perfect proportions. The low, dynamically tensioned roof line gives the five-door model the character of a coupe. At highway speeds, a rear spoiler extends from the rear hatch to improve stability.

In line with other S models, exterior differentiation designed to signify a more performance oriented model includes the single-frame grille, front bumper, side mirrors in aluminum color, sills, rear bumper, diffuser and the tailpipes.

The S7 shows its performance character in the interior, too. This can be seen in numerous details. Power-adjustable S7 sport seats are embossed with the S7 logo and connect the driver and passengers to the car and wrap them in Valcona leather with diamond stitching. There are S7 badges on the key, the leather sport steering wheel with colored stitching and aluminum shift paddles, as well as an S7-specific instrument cluster. The illuminated door sill trims and both displays (Audi MMI® and Driver Information System) greet the driver with the S7 logo. A red ring adorns the start-stop button, and an aluminum clasp adorns the selector lever. The footrest, the pedals and the soft keys of the MMI operating system shine in an aluminum-look finish.

Customers can choose decorative inlays available in a choice of four materials. Carbon Atlas, matte brushed aluminum, fine grain Ash natural brown wood or layered Oak wood are options.

Audi MMI Navigation plus comes standard on the S7, which includes Audi connect™ enabling Google Maps™ and Google Search™ as well as a Wi-Fi® hot spot for up to eight devices.

Available technologies include LED headlights, adaptive light, the ambient lighting package, advanced key, head-up display, Audi parking system plus with top view camera, and climate-controlled multi-contour seats with massage function.
The tightly networked driver assistance systems are all state-of-the-art. They include Audi pre sense plus driver assistance system, adaptive cruise control with stop & go function, Audi side assist, active lane assist, and night vision assistant with pedestrian detection.
