Audi’s new 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 is a great sounding engine already. In cars like the RS6, RS7 and RS Q8, it has a deep, guttural roar. However, in Europe, all cars are fitted with an OPF exhaust particulate filter, which dampens the noise. So many enthusiasts turn to aftermarket exhausts, which remove the OPF filter, to regain that noise. In this video, we see an Audi RS7 Sportback with a Milltek exhaust that does just that.
The Audi RS7 Sportback in this video not only has a Milltek exhaust but an OPF delete and catalytic converter delete. It also seems to have had its soft rev limiter turned off, as it was able to rev to redline while idle in this video. All new Audi models have soft rev limiters, which limit idle revs to just 4,000 rpm.
With the new exhaust, the Audi RS7 Sportback sounds monstrous. It might not sound pretty, per se, but it’s incredibly loud and violent. The sheer volume from this exhaust will frighten nearby passengers but the anger and violence of it will frighten other sports car owners. Though, it could do with fewer pops and bags. They’re artificially created, which is essentially a lie and the only thing we hate less than lying is skim milk; it’s just water lying about being milk…
This specific Audi RS7 Sportback also has a new steering wheel, which features a sportier rim with larger thumb rests, as well as carbon fiber inserts at the top and bottom. There’s even a little screen in the center of the steering wheel rim at the 12 o’clock position, flanked by two sets of shift lights. Behind it are new, much larger paddle shifters that seem to be made from carbon fiber.
