Audi’s new and face-lifted 2015 RS 7 Sportback includes both interior and exterior updates. According to a June 2 press release, the stylish, five-door coupe, currently slated for availability in Germany, features a sharpened, black Singleframe grille, signature of RS models. New headlights with standard LED technology, as well as an optional Matrix LED package, accompany the new face of the car. New paint finishes include Floret Silver, Glacier White, Mythos Black and Sepang Blue. The new 2015 Audi RS 7 Sportback also wears subtly updated air inlets in the front bumper.
Within the black leather-clad cabin, Audi engineers have slightly updated the instrument cluster, the shift paddles, the vent nozzles and the quattro emblem on the instrument panel. As an added bonus, the infotainment platform offers a new, efficient graphics processor from Nvidia.

Beneath the sleek hood, the 4.0-liter TFSI engine sends 560-hp and 516.3 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. With an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox, the Sportback goes from naught to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. With the environment keenly in mind, the twin-turbo V8 features a tall eighth gear and a cylinder deactivation system that helps keep the mpg at a reasonably high 24.8.
Base asking price for the RS 7 Sportback is at €113,300, or about $154,186.88.
