There’s no denying that the Audi RS7 is a potent and awe-inspiring performance car. After all, the car is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 that puts out a thunderous 560 horsepower, which is enough to glue you to the back of the seat and bury the needle in the red if you aren’t careful. Apparently Audi feels the car needs more attention, so it is using the New York International Auto Show to show off what kinds of customization owners can do to the car through the factory, using a new dynamic edition to generate interest.
The interior for the RS7 dynamic edition gets a healthy dose of red, almost like a chicken or ten were slaughtered inside the car and the blood was not completely wiped up. Among the red components are stitching on the gearshift boot, dash, seatbelts, seats, door armrests, center armrests — you get the picture. Audi also uses a number of carbon fiber inlays to give the car an even sportier look. The red is featured on the exterior as well, bathing the brake calipers in the color. Carbon fiber pieces are found on the exterior too, including the front air splitter, rear air diffuser and even the engine cover.
Many people are wondering why Audi has made the dynamic edition of the RS7, other than to follow in Porsche’s footsteps and kill buyers with expensive options. Getting the dynamic version of the RS7 will cost anyone dearly at a price tag of $146,045, humongous ego not included.
