Brutal performance and breathtaking design combine in the new Audi RS 7 Sportback
CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – Feb 20, 2014: The storming RS 7 Sportback has arrived in Australia. This unique performance vehicle blends the A7’s distinctive design with the crushing performance of Audi’s 4.0 TFSI twin-turbo V8.

“It combines performance and stunning design seamlessly, and complements these features with practicality thanks to its capacious storage area.

Discerning performance car buyers have already shown great interest, and we expect that this attention will heighten as people have the opportunity to experience this exceptional new model,” said Mr Doyle.
