    2014 AUDI RS7

    http://jalopnik.com/5975815/2014-aud...=recirculation


    Audi just dropped the 2014 RS7 on us here at the Detroit Auto Show. I'm now trying to figure out how I can afford one.
    In the last 20 minutes, I've considered befriending an older woman to leave me her fortune when she dies, robbing a K-Mart, and even becoming a man version of a lady of the night. But then I figured out just what I needed to do.
    Audi, can I exchange a spleen or kidney for an RS7? Please?
    For those who still foolishly believe they'll need their vestigial organs, allow me to explain. The RS7 is the ultra hot version of the A7 and S7 that are already prowling the streets. But unlike those cars, the RS7 has 560 HORSEPOWER AND 516 POUND FEET OF TORQUE from its 4.0 liter TFSI V8. All that power is fed through an eight-speed tiptronic. I wish they were using the S-Tronic that is in the 2014 R8, but I'll deal with it. It sounds like it's ZF's latest and greatest automatic. I'll let it pass.
    Audi, do you need some fingers? I surely don't need all of mine.
    Acceleration is brutal, with the industry standard 0-60 coming in a crazy 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 190 MPH in a $#@!ing family sedan.
    Audi, I've heard people can survive without a large intestine. Do you need one? Great price.

    Click here to enlargeWe also have one hell of an aggressive design. Front vents are three times larger than any other car Audi currently has. Three times. The large quattro lettering in the front grille is a little over the top, but I'll deal with it. The huge trumpets out back also make it easier to dragon. That's a win.

    Click here to enlargeMy only contention with the exterior is that Audi put chrome wheels on it. Chrome isn't going to happen for wheels again. Please don't make it happen again. It's too flashy. It's too wild. It's too much. Matte please.
    The interior is gorgeous. Carbon fiber is all over the place. There are paddle shifters. It's Audi quality. I'm smitten.Click here to enlarge
    I'm overcome with lust right now.
    Audi, call me. I've got most of the organs you could ever want to put down as an exchange for an RS7. I'll throw in a left ear. Barely been used.

    Please use the correct forums.

    Man, the Detroit Auto Show is awesome. Some HUGE reveals.

    I may need to make my way out of this one next year just sucks it's so close to the LA show. And Detroit doesn't really sound like too exciting of a city.

    Official: Audi reveals the 2014 RS7 at the Detroit Auto Show - 560 horsepower 4.0 TFSI Twin Turbo V8

    Here is what we all knew was coming, the new 2014 Audi RS7. This makes the for the third of the four Audi RS models Audi stated were set to be revealed this year. The other two being the new C7 Audi RS6 and the Audi RS5. That leaves one model left which is an SUV and which will either be Q3 or Q5 based. Just like the RS6 the new RS7 has 560 horsepower from the 4.0 TFSI Twin Turbo direct injected motor which is mated to an 8-speed automatic.

    No dual clutch transmission like in the S6? Bummer. Another downer is that we will not be getting an RS6 sedan. It's RS7 only for the North American market folks. Those that wanted this power and the RS handling and looks in the A6 will not be getting their wish. Bittersweet.

    The RS7 itself though is a very nice design and if the Audi S8 is any indication the performance will be exemplary. Expect mid to 11's in the 1/4 mile with trap speeds in the 123 mile per hour range.

    With the new RS7 coming to play as well as the facelifted E63 AMG and CLS63 AMG BMW's time in the sun with the F10 M5 appears to be over very quickly. Should be an epic battle between the M6, RS7, E/CLS63 AMG, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo for supremacy.

    Why would I want multiple threads on the same topic? It's no big deal.

    Agree, the CLS63 and RS7 are at the top. Screw the M5 and at M6GC.

    Audi already does the A6 and A7 so I don't see your point. S6/S7, etc.

    The RS6 avant does have more aggressive look and stance.

    It's a HUGE step up. I don't know if most people realize it. They were the red-headed stepchild of the German car world for a looooong while.
