The very first finished ABT RS7-LE in North America was just finished by ABT partner Masterpiece Auto in Miami, Florida, where several ABT Limited Editions have been built and delivered to their happy clients across the state in the last years already.
The ABT RS7-LE sets itself apart with a beautiful "Signature Carbon Bold" surface used on the exterior add-on parts. One of the aerodynamic highlights is the carbon insert integrated into the hood, which - in addition to visual aspects - provides improved heat dissipation of the Biturbo-V8 engine. The extensive body kit further consists of a front lip with the integrated front blades, front skirt inserts, a front grille attachment, mirror caps, side skirt inserts, side blades, rear skirt insert and a rear spoiler, which is now free-standing and newly designed compared to the standard model.
For the appropriate orchestration, ABT Sportsline has installed its own exhaust system made of stainless steel, which ends in four end pipes with a diameter of 4 inch (102 mm).
Of course, the ABT RS7 Legacy Edition also impresses with its inner values. ABT has refined the interior with Dinamica soul fabric on the steering wheel, shift knob cover, dashboard and seat frame trims. This soft, suede-like surface is not only particularly flame-retardant, but also optimally protected against moisture and dirt.
The RS7 Legacy Edition doesn’t run on any kind of wheels, but specially designed ABT HIGH PERFORMANCE IR22 forged wheels in glossy black finish with floating center caps.
Good looks are just one aspect of the ABT RS7-LE, power is the other. For the new RS 7 performance version the ABT power upgrade increases the output from 621 HP / 627 lb-ft to approx. 710 hp / 700 lb-ft. Our latest generation control units are designed by our engineers to deliver the ideal performance for everyday use with the highest possible protection.
The ABT RS7-LE package is not only available for the most recent model of Audi’s high-performance Sportback: Both the visual upgrades (carbon exterior, wheels, exhaust and interior) and a power upgrade are available for the 2021 to 2023 model year Audi RS 7 as well. On those models, the ABT engine control unit improves the output from 591 HP / 590 lb ft to approx. 690 HP / 649 lb ft*.
