Audi RS7 by FLGNTLT at Essen Motor Show

A sinister Audi RS7 by FLGNTLT is being showcased these days at the 2014 Essen Motor Show in Germany. It looks like a suitable vehicle to act as the next Batmobile as it adopts an all-black look and has also been lowered to create a meaner stance for the high-performance German four-door coupe. We notice the stock wheels were replaced with a larger set of Vossen alloys wrapped around in low-profile tires to enhance the aggressive appearance.

We remind you Audi facelifted the RS7 Sportback several months ago, with the most important change being the implementation of optional matrix LED headlights which compared to those fitted on the A8/S8 facelift come with a darker trim. In addition, the updated RS7 has a revised singleframe front grille, bigger air inlets while optional glossy, matte aluminum and carbon packages are available at an additional cost.

The facelifted Audi RS7 Sportback also gets a richer exterior color catalog and a tweaked instrument cluster while the shift paddles and air outlet controls have also gone through some changes. As you would expect, the MMI infotainment system with MMI Touch has been updated to the latest version.

There aren’t any changes underneath the hood as the 2015 Audi RS7 Sportback packs the same V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo with 560 HP (412 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm), enough for a 0-100 km/h run in 3.9 seconds and a 305 km/h top speed when configured with the optional dynamics package.
