Audi RS7 Dynamic Edition is an expensive styling package

Wed, 16 Apr 2014

How much dynamism does one man need -- nay, deserve? Audi attempts to answer that with the RS7 Dynamic Edition, a trim package for the current RS7, which is pretty dynamic to begin with.

The Dynamic Edition provides no power or suspension upgrades over the regular RS7, preferring to merely look more dynamic (as a proof-of-concept from the "Audi exclusive" program). A carbon fiber package provides a splitter up front and a diffuser in back, and 21-inch gloss black wheels do a poor job of hiding the brake calipers that are now painted tornado red. A cool "Quattro" grille provides visual dynamism up front.

Inside, it's all Black Valcona leather sport seats with crimson red honeycomb stitching to provide gluteal dynamism. Carbon fiber accents and honeycomb stitching across the dash, shift boot and armrests further the sense of dynamics. Just four colors are available for the Dynamic Edition: ibis white, suzuka gray metallic, Daytona gray pearl, and phantom black pearl, all of which promise their own levels of dynamism. The seat belts are also red.

The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 remains dynamically unchanged, as does Dynamic Ride Control and Dynamic Steering, which were deemed sufficiently dynamic already.

Your cash flow situation will need to be dynamic too if you'd like to pick up this particular Audi special edition. Expect $146,045 to whiz out of your Audi stainless steel woven, RFID-blocking wallet -- that's a dynamic increase of $41,145 over the base RS7. May we remind you that with 560 horsepower, the RS7 -- and our beloved long-term S7, Baxter -- are both brimming with dynamic abilities of their own even without the extras of the Dynamic Edition.

Inside, carbon fiber and red stitching are even more dynamic.
