Not long ago the new 2021 Audi RS 7 was released in North America and more than one of the lucky owners of the performance Sportback treated themselves with an early Christmas present – their own exclusive ABT RS7-R Limited Edition.
Just 125 units worldwide are available and the very first finished build in North America was done by ABT’s longtime partner GMP Performance at their brand-new Lake Norman shop in North Carolina. The RS7-R is packed with stylish carbon fiber body parts that enhance the expressive Sportback design. The ABT front lip with side blades, front lip add-on with red RS7-R logo, front flics and a front grille add-on create a striking appearance. Fender inserts with carbon fiber fin and 1 of 125 logo and rocker panel add-ons blend in with the sleek side lines of the cars. Carbon fiber parts on the rear of the car include a trunk spoiler, diffuser, and glossy black rear bumper inserts with carbon fiber fin. Part of the kit is also a resonant ABT muffler system consisting of a middle muffler replacement pipe and rear muffler with double carbon fiber exhaust bezels.
The limited quantity of the RS7-R is displayed through several badges and logos in the interior, like door sills mentioning the “1 of 125” units, a badge on the dashboard and a carbon fiber shift knob cover. The very first ABT RS7-R in North America takes on the road with ABT GR 22-inch wheels in glossy black.
Optional available in North America is the ABT Power Upgrade, which boosts the performance of the standard RS 7 model from 591 hp and 590 lb-ft to 690 hp and 649 lb-ft*.
