The less-powerful S7 uses Audi’s own seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, but that gearbox can’t handle any more twist, so the RS7 is fitted with the ubiquitous ZF-sourced eight-speed torque-converter automatic.

A gentle stroke of the gas pedal sends the RS7 deep into triple-digit territory, and despite a 4500-ish-pound curb weight, the chassis is athletic and the responses quick.
