Default Neighbor 2018 RS7

Neighbor claims only 25 allowed in US . Special model. Color metllic blue. Special sftermarket exhaust installed by Audi. Gives a bit MORE HP. Off white diamond seat pattern. Off the market until airbag problem was resolved he says.

He let me drive the car. 0-60 is 3.2 secs. Has LOTS OF POWER. You really need to master this car to get the most out of it. Spending some time on the race track seems to be a good idea. It really hauls, especilly for such a heavy car. And it really pulls all the way to the redine.

he is asking my advice on tuning the suspension. I would think one would have to master their skill before you start messing with the Audi engineer set up. Then you better find someone who has experience with this special model. With only 25 in the US chances of finding that seems extremely unlikely. I detected little to no understear...but there was some torque steer or some of the nannies trying to maximize traction when you nailed it. I think it’s just something you have to get used to.

I own a 2014 S4 with a manual transmission and traded in RS5 on a 2018 S5 cab. Let me say l am astounded that Audi would build a limited edition RS7 and send 25 of them to the US. And that my next door neighbor would have one...what are the odds?

he is also looking at some larger paddles. When nailed it moves through the gears pretty fast!

Neighbor tells me the special exhaust is $8,000. Itís loud, crackles, burps, growls and bangs. And you can really hear it with all the windows up.

Ceramic brakes are very impressive. Didnít seem to be any warm up time. Just worked right away. Donít know if he had been driving before he pulled in my driveway though.
