Making its world debut at the New York Auto Show, and commanding a $40,250 premium over the base RS7, is Audi's new 2015 RS7 Dynamic Edition that arrives with an MSRP of $146,045 (including destination and delivery). The range-topping hatchback is designed to showcase Audi's exclusive program, which allows customers to choose choose from the automaker's long list of options and then take the customization one step further with bespoke paintwork, upholstery, bodywork and wheels.

The interior features Black Valcona leather seats with Crimson Red honeycomb stitching, and matching Crimson Red seat belts. The contrasting color is carried through to the stitching on the dashboard, center armrest, door panels, shift boot and center console. Carbon fiber inlays provide additional contrast. The exterior is offering in four colors (Ibis White, Suzuka Gray metallic, Daytona Gray pearl and Phantom Black pearl), with each arriving with performance-oriented DRC suspension (with three-stage adjustable dampers), 21-inch Gloss Black wheels, Tornado Red painted brake calipers and sport exhaust. A carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser and carbon fiber engine cover complete the package.

Like the standard RS7, the Dynamic Edition arrives with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 rated at 560 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. With an eight-speed automatic transmission, running through Audi's Quattro permanent all-wheel drive and a sport differential, the four-passenger vehicle will crack the 60 mph acceleration benchmark in a reported 3.7 seconds – and, thanks to cylinder-on-demand technology, it avoids a gas-guzzler tax. The RS7 Dynamic Edition arrives at dealerships in early summer.

HERNDON, Va., April 15, 2014 – The Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition will make its debut at the New York International Auto Show on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 and will begin arriving at dealerships in early summer. Highlights include such elements as Crimson Red safety belts and stitching throughout the interior. Tornado Red brake calipers, Carbon fiber elements, DRC suspension and sport exhaust. MSRP including destination and delivery is $146,045.

"The Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition exemplifies just some of the personalization options that are possible through our Audi exclusive program", said Filip Brabec, Director of Product Planning, Audi of America. "The combination of our most powerful RS model ever and the added customized elements make this a truly special car to drive and to behold."

The Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition combines all of the performance of the 560 horsepower RS 7 including the DRC suspension with elements of the exclusive customization program. The Black Valcona leather seats have the RS specific honeycomb stitch in Crimson Red matching the safety belts of the same color. Additional Crimson Red stitching can be found on the dashboard, gear shifter boot, center and door armrests as well as along the center console. The Crimson Red accents combine with the carbon fiber inlays to further amplify the performance character of the Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition.

The exterior is highlighted by Tornado Red brake calipers with RS 7 logo and 21-inch Gloss Black wheels. Carbon fiber splitter, diffuser and carbon fiber engine cover further underline the performance character of the exclusive RS 7. Four exterior colors are available to complement the exclusive design elements: Ibis White, Suzuka Gray metallic, Daytona Gray pearl, Phantom Black pearl.

The DRC system utilizes three-stage adjustable dampers that are hydraulically cross-linked and integrated into the Audi drive select system along with the standard rear sport differential for maximum performance driving. Dynamic steering adapts the steering boost and ratio to allow for more precise handling.

The epitome of aesthetic design, innovative technology and track-tested performance, the five-door coupe is fitted with the twin-turbo 4.0 Liter TFSI® V8 engine, producing an astounding 560 hp that launches the RS 7 from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. At low to medium loads and engine speeds – with its innovative cylinder on demand™ technology – the RS 7 deactivates cylinders 2, 3, 5 and 8 by closing their valves via electromechanical actuators. The 4.0 Liter TFSI engine runs in four-cylinder mode, providing up to 15% better fuel efficiency, while the active engine mounts remove any changes in vibration between eight and four-cylinder modes. Innovative solutions such as thermal management and cylinder on demand enable the RS 7 to achieve a respectable EPA estimated MPG of 16 city/27 highway/19 combined. The RS 7 is not subject to a gas guzzler tax.

      I have the A7. I love the car, but it have so many technical problems. And it looks like here in Israel they don't know how to fix it. They just change parts and hope it will fix it.

          Straight-line acceleration can get boring pretty fast. Audi's Road cars have never been much to look forward to in the handling department because of their over the front axle engine placement which causes noticeable understeer. For the price they are charging on this I would much rather shoot over to the local Porsche showroom and get my moneys worth.

          What they said. Fast does not automatically equal fun.

          0-60 speed doesnt equal "fun"... more smiles in a miata than an Audi for true enthusiasts and drivers
