    • The 2020 C8 Audi RS7 styling is simply stunning - 591 horsepower, $120k+ MSRP

      Audi is continuing its aggressive styling language which you saw on the new C8 RS6 with its 2020 C8 RS7 sibling. It is no surprise the RS7 takes a similar approach but somehow the RS6 comes off as the styling winner here.


      That is of course just an opinion as both are stunning. Whichever one appeals more is completely up to you.

      They both share the same second generation 4.0 TFSI V8 with 591 horsepower under the skin. That power is of course sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic.

      21-inch wheels are standard but there are optional 22's you see pictured. Who ever thought a car would come from the factory with 22-inch wheels?

      The major hardware change with this generation is the inclusion of a 48-volt hybrid system that includes a lithium-ion battery. There is a belt driven generator but it also utilizes regenerative braking to charge the battery. This system is mostly to help efficiency, not performance.

      How much? Pricing has yet to be announced but expect it on sale next year in the USA at $120k+.

        Really aggressive. Not sure if I prefer it over the old RS7 but it's definitely a worthy looking successor.

        Inside is beautiful, but that front end is way too much. Rice anyone?

        At first I didn't like the front end but it has really grown on me. Personally I think it looks better on the RS6 compared to the RS7.

        I agree with you, that it looks better on the RS6. Donít get me wrong itís a beautiful car. Iím not saying that itís ugly, the bumper is just a little over the top for my taste. Some people were hating on the R8s face lift and this is basically the same front bumper.

        I love Audi's but that front end isn't working for me. The far ends of the bumper need to be tied together. The center looks empty while the sides are too busy.
