When Audi tweaked the Audi S8 to create the S8 Plus, they added an extra 45 hp and 37lb-ft of torque onto the 4.0 litre engine, turning an already formidable performance vehicle into a true competitor, getting the driver from 0-124 mph in just 12.1 seconds.
Audi has given the RS 6 and RS 7 the same treatment, making them serious performance contenders. They will now produce 445kW (33kWs more than before) and 750Nm (as opposed to 700Nm). This increase means they can now achieve 0-62 mph in just 3.7 seconds - 0.2 seconds better than previously, plus, suspension has been lowered by 20mm.
You also have the option of a Dynamic Package, which will lift top speed capability to 189.5mph, made possible with Audi’s quattro® all-wheel-drive system and eight-speed automatic gearbox. When activated, this overboost function switches from white to red and everything can be controlled via Audi Select.
The interior is also being given an upgrade - the new RS sport seats have a special Alcantara and leather pattern to give them that super luxurious feel.
The new performance versions of the RS 6 and RS 7 models will be available in 2016, but if you can’t wait until then, Jardine Motors Audi will help you find your next Audi today.
