2021 Audi RS7 in Vegas Yellow Shows Stunning Spec in Qatar

Every time there's an expensive new Audi performance car out, owners try to outdo each other with colors that stand out yet still look OEM. Normally, we'd expect an RS7 Sportback like this one to reside at Audi Forum Ingolstadt, but it's just been filmed and photographed in detail in Doha, Qatar.

The stand-out feature is the paint color, Vegas Yellow. Auditography says this was made to order from the Audi Exclusive catalog. We find that rather puzzling because it used to belong to the cheapest quattro sports model.

The earliest contact we had with Vegas Yellow dates from almost seven years ago, when Audi launched the S1. It was an impressive little pocket rocket, fitted with a quattro system that had to be developed from scratch for this Fiesta-sized car. And during a launch event in Scandinavia, this shade of yellow and Viper Green were the highlights.

Vegas Yellow was also available on the outgoing A3, and it was relatively common on the Q2 baby crossover. In any case, let's get back to the RS7, which also features the Carbon Fiber Pack, adding the exotic material to the usual places like skirts and spoilers. Of course, the performance exhaust has also been fitted for maximum twin-turbo V8 naughtiness.

The RS7 appears to be the only new one painted this color and belongs to TheQcollection. This man has all the latest, coolest Porsches and other luxury vehicles that will make you envious. However, there is at least one RS6 Avant, the low-rider you see in the second video below. Tell us which one you think pulled it off best.

In terms of power and esthetics, these two are quite similar. Both rely on the 4.0 TFSI engine to produce 591 hp or 600 PS. And because of Audi's little face swap, the RS6 has the exact same headlights as its coupe brother.
