Cool Took Audi RS7 Out for a Spin

Here is my little write-up:

http://www.motorflair.com/2016/08/au...y-of-four.html



To Summarize, I was disappointed. The car looks great, has awesome interior and impressive built quality all around. Engine is a beast, but the chassis is simply not good. It rolls all over the place, you sit way too high, it just doesn't feel like a Sport Coupe. BMW M6GC or CLS AMG are a lot more fun, but if you need that hatchback, this car will do its job as a uber fast people carrier.

Some pics:

IMO , the only truly great RS car Audi has in the last 5 years is the TTRS.

The TTRS and R8 are the only two cars by Audi that excites the performance car guy in me.

The rest of the RS line-up is just fluff, straight line only, not well rounded

I love how the Audi 7 looks, but it's truly massive. You just can't get around the fact that it FEELS like you're driving a huge car. Seating position just makes it worse.

Nice write up and pics, though I have to say the RS7 is one of the most hideous cars I have ever laid eyes upon. It's simply overwhelmingly boring and unimaginative...especially considering what it costs.

I do like the color though.

Interesting, I haven't even thought about the TTRS, I actually do like their RS4 and RS5, and as I mentioned in the article the original S5. Granted I haven't driven any of them so I can't really say much, so I can only hope that they are more involving than the RS7. The 4.2 V8 in the RS4 and RS5 is trully epic IMO...

These are my thoughts exactly... There is no excuse for such awful driving experience. I mean Panamera, CLS, and M6GC are so much more fun and involving!

Well, it looks alright, especially i like the proportions... but yeah, for the price, you would expect something that has more of a sports car feel.
