Exterior appearance

By reshaping the sport sedan, the Audi RS 7 spawned its share of imitators. Its sleek silhouette is a sight to behold from almost any angle. And in keeping with its high-performance mission, the RS 7 was shaped to channel the air to help improve cooling and downforce.

Matte Aluminum-optic exterior appearance

Air intakes

When air encounters the Audi RS 7, it is channeled through the Singleframe® grille to cool the radiator and over the front lip spoiler to create downforce.

Adaptive rear spoiler

Integrated into the lift gate, a powered rear spoiler raises and retracts automatically to help increase downforce.
