Audi RS7 Sportback featured in next Hitman movie

It was 2007 when the original Hitman movie came out and on February 27, 2015 a remake featuring a red Audi RS7 Sportback will premiere. Called, “Hitman: Agent 47”, the movie is based on the Hitman series of video games developed by Square Enix and was showcased briefly several days ago during the San Diego Comic-Con.

For those of you who haven’t heard about the movie or video games, it’s about Agent 47 who is an elite assassin helping a woman find her father. In the process, the character played by Rupert Friend drives a red Audi RS7 Sportback. It should be mentioned that Paul Walker was originally casted for this movie but after his tragic passing Rupert Friend was hired to replace him.

The Audi RS7 Sportback is a seriously quick car wrapped around in a sleek fastback body that comes with an aggressive styling and massive 20-inch alloy wheels. The mean looks are backed by a V8 turbocharged engine outputting no less than 560 bhp, enough for a maximum speed of no less than 174 mph (280 km/h). It’s actually one of the fastest Audis you can buy today, with only the R8 supercar offering better performances but at a considerably higher price tag.
