What comes after RS? Motrolix didn’t know there was anything beyond that, but Audi just created the Dynamic Edition to teach us a thing or two. Making its debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, the Audi RS7 Dynamic Edition takes the already-substantial Audi RS7 and adds over 40 grand worth of equipment.
The standard RS7 has Audi’s Dynamic Ride Control suspension as an option, but the Audi RS7 Dynamic Edition makes it standard. Also standard are Black Valcona leather sport seats with nifty honeycomb stitching, Crimson Red seatbelts and interior stitching, Tornado Red brake calipers (with the RS7 logo, natch), sport exhaust, and 21-inch five-spoke wheels with Gloss Black accents. For fans of carbon fiber, the front splitter, rear diffuser, and engine cover should satisfy you.
The powerplant should be familiar, as the RS7-standard 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 with 560 horsepower is known to give world-class performance and — in the case of the RS7 — five-passenger comfort. Power is harnessed through an eight-speed automatic with AWD, and like most good cars these days, this Audi wouldn’t be caught dead without a cylinder-on-demand function to give four-cylinder economy when headed to the 7-11.
Expect the RS7 Dynamic Edition to arrive at your local dealer this summer for $146,045, giving you a few months to save your pennies.
