Frankfurt Show 2011 Highlights: 2013 Audi S7

Also making an appearance in Frankfurt was the S6 saloon, S6 Avant and S7, each running a less highly tuned version of Audi’s twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8, which produces 414bhp and 406lb ft from 1400rpm to 5300rpm.

This represents a 14bhp reduction on the old S6 saloon’s and S6 Avant’s naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10, although torque has increased by 7lb ft and is now developed 1600rpm lower in the rev range.

These new S models also adopt Audi’s seven-speed double-clutch S-tronic gearbox in place of the older six-speed automatic. Other new developments include a reworked Torsen four-wheel drive system, which, like that of the S8, features a self-locking centre differential and torque vectoring.

The S6 saloon, S6 Avant and S7 also receive Audi’s new cylinder-on-demand tech and active noise cancellation as standard.
