VIDEO: Is This the Fastest Audi RS7 Sportback in the World?

The Audi RS7 Sportback is a seriously quick car. Its 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 makes 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, which by our maths is 600 for both. That helps it get from 0-60 mph in the mid-three-second range, while also being able to shuttle five adults and some luggage. In other words, no one has ever driven the RS7 and thought “it’s good but it needs more power…”

 

However, more power is exactly what this example got, from Power Division, a tuning team inside Italian tuning company Magic Motorsport. Thanks to two LM990 Ladermanufaktur hybrid turbos, a custom Power Division intercooler, MG Motorsport exhaust with Power Division downpipe, and obviously an engine tune, this Audi RS7 Sportback makes a mega 1,050 horsepower and 885 lb-ft (1,200 Nm) of torque.

 

In this new video from Auditography, we get to see just how fast it is. According to the video, this tuned Audi RS7 Sportback can get from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in a ridiculous 2.48 seconds. That’s Porsche Taycan Turbo S fast. What’s even crazier is that it can get from 62-124 mph (100-200 km/h) in just 4.63 seconds. Total that up and this RS7 can reach 124 mph in a 7.11 seconds. For context, that’s faster than my B6 Audi A4 can reach 60 mph.

While the car in the video sounds good, it doesn’t sound great. That’s not a knock on either the car or the tune, just the nature of heavily turbocharged engines. They never sound great, with two big turbos muting the exhaust gasses. There are also a ton of tuned-in pops and bangs on the exhaust which, if you know me, I don’t think sound very good. That’s just me, though.

 

You don’t get this sort of tune for the exhaust noise, though. You get it because you want to have the fastest Audi RS7 Sportback in the world. Can this very car make such a claim? I can’t be certain, there’s no way of knowing if there’s actually a faster car out there, or if this one can even back up its claimed times, without getting some officially timed runs at a drag strip. However, with 1,050 horsepower, it’s bound to be bonkers fast either way.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
