A brief touch of the accelerator and irresistible acceleration awaits you. Not without reason: the powerful eight cylinders of the 4.0-litre V8 TFSI® engine catapult the Audi S7 Sportback from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. You continue to accelerate.
The Audi S7 Sportback has a 4.0-litre V8 TFSI engine featuring the new innovative cylinder on demand technology. It ensures that during partial load operation, only four of the eight cylinders are used – without you noticing the difference. The engine runs just as smoothly and powerfully, but it uses less fuel and emits less CO2.
The V8 TFSI® engine
We describe the way it works as “intelligent performance”: cylinder on demand shuts off only certain cylinders, two per cylinder bank in each case. As a result, engine operation is impressively smooth at partial loads too. Cylinder shut-off is controlled by several factors: the engine speed must be between 930 and 3,500 rpm; the engine temperature must be at least 40 °C; and you must be driving in at least third gear.
quattro® – permanent power to all four wheels
The quattro permanent drive system guarantees more driving pleasure – especially on slippery road surfaces. If the wheels of one axle lose grip and threaten to spin, the central differential redirects the drive torque to the other axle, automatically and continuously. The result: better acceleration, greater lateral stability, improved traction, enhanced safety and even more driving pleasure.
The 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission not only combines two gearboxes in one, but also sportiness and efficiency. The high level of efficiency and the rapid gear changes deliver even greater driving pleasure.
