2014 Audi RS7: Top Speed Bahnstorming in Germany! – Ignition Ep. 80

On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the new Audi RS7 through over 500 miles of German roads, including top-speed blasts on the unrestricted Autobahn. With 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque from its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8, the RS7 eclipses even the R8’s 5.2-liter V-10 in power delivery. We find out just how monstrous the resulting acceleration is — as well as the top speed — though the green countryside of southern Germany.

Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

  3. Pure Sculpture Design an Proportions. Car has a great spirit!

  4. They don't get out of your way because your in the Audi…. it's just the natural European way of driving… unlike the USA

  5. Can't decide if the sounds is nice or just like a tractor

  6. bernd lauert says:

  7. Not a sedan mate..

    m6 gran coupe is lyfe

  13. What a terrible exhaust note.

  14. Fleisch Berg says:

    I'd love to see an Autobahn comparison between an RS7 or a comparable M or AMG car, and a new Mustang, Camaro or another modern muscle car from the US.
    Seems like the newer American cars have made huge progress in terms of suspension, chassis, cornering speed, stability under power etc. lately. So, for some Germans it would be very interesting to see how they compare to "our" cars in terms of stability, comfort, durability and safety when travelling at high speeds for hours, which used to be Audi's, Mercedes' and BMW's territory. Cheers from Deutschländ!

  15. 192 mph in a AUDI RS7 thats crazy

  16. Blat, blat, blat. Love that sound.

  17. MrCr3ep3r says:

    looks like they didnt have the money to afford the extended speed limit wich btw is a total ripoff but i have driven faster in a 230hp tt so its pretty pathetic that audi locks such a car at 250 km/h

  18. Richard The says:

    I don't think Quattro is the equivalent of AMG / M. It's more like 4Matic/xDrive…

  19. Mehdy Akl says:

    I feel like this guy doesn't work for them anymore.

  20. Chris Davies says:

    Sounds like a pile of crap with an exhaust system fitted to it.

  21. D. M. Cook says:

    What driver pushes his/her new vehicle to over well over 100 mph on a highway during a downpour? Definitely not a SMART one!!! Death doesn't discriminate, pal!!!

  22. Best cars? In Germany!

  23. TheDowner says:

    My 2016 A6 has the 2.0L Turbo. You want to talk about an amazing engine? Yes. 252hp from 121 cubic inches. Plug in some tuning, and you can get these engines over 400hp. The torque is also off the charts at 273ftlb. The EA888 in it's present tune is probably the best engine in the world, overall. It has far more power than most people will ever use. I've done 60mph runs in less than 6 seconds, and probably closer to 5 seconds.

  24. chris s says:

    You lucky devil. 300+ klm/h

  25. Audi created the RS7 for the American market. You can't buy an RS6 in America

  26. I thought Quattro was just what audi called their AWD system

  27. Underwood95 says:

    Correct me if i'm wrong please! My understanding is that you can have a very good high performance car with a regular non-turbo V8! But yet car companies now a day over complicate and over engineer the hell out of their cars! Do we really need things like 4 wheel steering?

  28. yo, man! people don't respect the car. people are used to move over from any lane that has a free lane to its right, no matter your car. don't flatter yourself. another part of the german highway code, without which you couldn't have those speeds available to general public, is not waving your arms to anyone if you wan't to overtake. you brake, and you wait patiently. peace!
