INGOLSTADT - August 27, 2014: The Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI competition features the 3.0 TDI biturbo clean diesel with a capacity of 2,967 cc. Modifications in the charging and camshafts have boosted its power by an additional 5 kW (6 hp) compared with the standard model, to 240 kW (326 hp). When the driver accelerates in full, a boost function provides an additional 15 kW (20 hp) on top for a brief period. The maximum output when this function is active is 255 kW (346 hp). The maximum torque of 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) is available between 1,400 and 2,800 rpm. The emissions rating is Euro 6.

In keeping with its dynamic character, the Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI competition comes with the S line sport package, which also includes lowering the body by 20 millimeters (0.8 in). The wheels, with their five-spoke W design, have black painted sides. At 20 inches in diameter, they look very impressive; the tire dimension is 265/35. Red brake calipers and discs in 17-inch format on the front and rear axles underscore this special edition model’s sporty character.

The S line exterior package and black gloss package lend the body a dynamic elegance; there are also V6 T emblems on the fenders, black exterior mirror housings and high-gloss black tailpipe trims. The special edition model is offered in Daytona Gray, Misano Red, Nardo Gray and Sepang Blue.

In the style of the S line sport package, the interior of the Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI competition is designed in black. The sport seats are upholstered in fine Valcona leather in black or lunar silver and decorated with S line embossing. As an option, Audi offers the S sport seat with contrasting stitching in Misano Red or Agate Gray; in this case, the armrests are also upholstered in leather with contrast stitching. The inlays consist of aluminum and Beaufort wood in black – an especially high-grade metal/wood combination. The door sill trims feature “quattro” logos. The shift paddles behind the multifunction sport steering wheel can be used to control the eight-speed tiptronic manually.

This special edition model comes packed with all the features that have already gone into the revised A7* model series. They include LED headlights as standard as well as turn signals with dynamic display. As an option, Audi can supply the Matrix LED headlights, the even more powerful MMI Navigation plus and further developed driver assistance systems such as night vision assist.

Customers can order the Audi A7 Sportback 3.0 TDI competition starting in early August; the vehicles will begin shipping in the fall. The base price is 72,400 euros.
