Tuned Audi RS7 runs quarter mile in 10.1 seconds

You are looking at the fastest Audi RS7 Sportback in the entire world thanks to a comprehensive tuning job. Although the high-performance four-door coupe tips the scales at around 1,700 kg (3,747 lbs), it’s still able to run the quarter mile in approximately 11.5 seconds when it’s in stock configuration.

If that’s not impressive, a tuned version equipped with the APR Total Race Stage 2 package was able to do the quarter mile in as little as 10.1 seconds during the stage five of the Russian Drag Racing Championship. It still had the dual-clutch eight-speed tiptronic transmission delivering the power to the quattro all-wheel drive system.

At the end of the quarter mile, the Audi RS7 Sportback was doing 135 mph (218 km/h) thanks to an upgraded twin-turbo V8 4.0 TFSI turbocharged gasoline engine which in stock configuration develops 560 HP (412 kW) but it has been tuned to generate more than 750 HP (552 kW) and chances are the torque was significantly boosted compared to the series 700 Nm (516 lb-ft).

We remind you the stock Audi RS7 sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and keep on going until it hits a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) when configured with the optional dynamics package.
