Product Overview

Audi S7 C7 (Typ 4G8) Sportback is a full-size luxury sedan in production from 2012 to 2014, whereupon it received a facelift. It was powered by a single bi-turbo petrol V8 engine that displaced 4.0 liters.
Indeed, the C7 S7 shared the exact powertrain setup with the C7 S6 alongside the chassis and suspension setups. Some may argue that the S7 looks better, though others find the fastback "4-door sedan" design impractical or even ugly.
Audi has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.28 coefficient of drag to show for it.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the C7 S7 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
