Tick all the options on the new RS7 and you end up with one expensive sedan.
Audi recently opened up the RS6 Avant configurator to the public, giving us the chance to build our dream hi-po wagon, and now comes the news that the RS7 liftback can also be virtually configured. Time to play.
If you move on over to the options list, there's a vast array of cosmetic, performance and tech additions which all quickly add up. Tick all of the options and you could end up with a car costing northward of $150,000. So let's dig into the options list and see what we come up with.
Firstly, on the exterior side of things, we would go for the ultra-exclusive paint option which goes for $3,900 and includes hues of red, blue silver, and even gold, but you can get Nardo Gray for free, or pay $595 for a premium color, and $1,075 for Sebring Black Crystal. For wheels, we would select the 22-inch V-Spoke anthracite design which comes with the Carbon Optic Package for a cool $6,650. That brings the total thus far to $125,545.Inside, the first thing we would do is get the $1,500 Individual Contour Seating package which includes heated and ventilated 18-way power contour front seats. We would also go full carbon fiber with the inlays for $500.
Now we get to the juicy part: the packages. First and foremost, we would get the $8,500 Gray Ceramic Brake Package which also allows for a top speed of 190 mph.
For an even more luxurious experience, we selected the $2,500 Executive Package which adds stuff like a head-up display with navigation system information. The Driver Assistance Package is a no brainer for $2,250 and brings traffic sign recognition, intersection assist, and more to the party. The $1,000 sport exhaust system also makes the cut.
From there on out its a mad rush to the finish. We'd throw in the night vision assistant, the black Alcantara headliner as well as the Bang & Olufsen audio system. We're then left with a list of accessories such as a bike rack and cargo box. Select them and you're left with a total asking price of $152,445. Worth it? Totally.
