Audi has just blown my mind with one of the sexiest models I’ve seen from them in quite some time: the 2014 RS7. This luxury hatchback/sedan features a roof that slopes towards the rear, giving it a hatchback appearance, but this slope is so gentle that I could also call it a sedan. Its powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that pumps out a whopping 560 hp and 533 lb-ft of torque. While this beastly engine is only limited to reach a top speed of 155mph, it has the capability of reaching 189mph and can reach 62mph from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds. A couple quick tunes, and this Audi could join the 200mph club. Whats more, the RS7 will also achieve 25 mpg. This is possible through a cylinder-on-demand system which can deactivate and activate 4 cylinders. Say you are driving around the city at slow speeds, only 4 of the cylinders would be active. But what if you leave the city for the highway? Step on the gas and the other 4 cylinders are activated, turning your tame RS7 into a twin-turbo V8 monster.
