With the choice between two powerful V8 engines, the 2017 Audi RS7 generates between 560 and 605 horsepower, solidifying its sport sedan status. The RS7’s V8 engine is joined by an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard Quattro all-wheel drive.
RS7 sportback isn’t your typical Audi. Equipped with a powerful V8 engine, this luxury vehicle has all it takes to turn heads on the street and the racetrack. Even better, a used 2017 RS7 is only half as expensive as a new one, meaning you could easily make one of these sportbacks your own for as little as $60,000! 
But just how much horsepower can you expect to get out of the 2017 Audi RS7—and which of its two engine options should you choose to maximize that power?

2017 Audi RS7 horsepower

The amount of horsepower you can expect to get out of your 2017 Audi RS7 is going to depend on which of its trim options you purchase. While both the standard RS7 and the RS7 Performance models are equipped with the same 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the models don’t produce the same amount of horsepower. 
The base RS7’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine produces 560 horsepower @ 6,600 RPM and 516 pound-feet of torque @ 1,750 to 5,500 RPM. Meanwhile, the RS7 Performance model, despite being equipped with the same 4.0-liter V8 engine, produces 605 horsepower @ 6,100 to 6,800 RPM and 516 pound-feet of torque @ 1,500 to 6,000 RPM. The RS7 Performance is able to produce more horsepower, despite having the same powertrain, thanks to more efficient intercooler heat exchangers, a reprogrammed engine computer, and revised camshafts that activate new exhaust valves. 
The RS7’s additional performance capabilities power the sportback from zero to 60 miles per hour in as little as 3.6 seconds and allow the vehicle to reach maximum speeds of 190 miles per hour. That being said, that extra power comes at a price. 
In 2017, the RS7 Performance model would have cost drivers $130,500 compared to the base RS7’s $111,600. Today,
Kelley Blue Book
suggests that a fair market range for the base RS7 would be between $57,882 and $63,797, while the RS7 Performance has an estimated used fair market range of between $65,798 and $72,521
