Tuned Audi RS 7 Is So Bad It Needs Detention, You'll (Probably) Never Guess the Tuner

Fueled by the popularity of the Mercedes CLS, the original Audi A7 started life in 2010, when production started at the Neckarsulm factory in Germany. Ten years later, the executive coupe is in the second generation, which is already five years old.

During this time, we've pretty much covered all aspects of the model, starting with the China-only A7L four-door sedan (the normal A7 is a five-door liftback) to the range-topping RS 7. Whether it was pure babbling about its construction, which stretches (pun intended) all the way to the Lamborghini Urus, or the occasional tuned copy, name it, and chances are we wrote about it.

Speaking of tuned examples, it was the one pictured in the gallery that recently caught our attention. It follows the business on the outside and party on the inside theme, sporting an aftermarket body kit and a completely reupholstered cabin. And given the head-turning looks, one might think it comes from a tuner that doesn't tend to go OTT. But that's not the case, as Mansory actually signed this Audi RS 7.

Finished in gray and sporting add-ons all around, like those attached to the front and rear bumpers and side skirts, it features a set of aftermarket wheels in black with a touch of orange. The same hue was replicated on the apron, side skirts, and diffuser, as well as on other elements, and it was the color of choice when it came to the brake calipers, too. Mansory logos decorate the exterior of the car and round things off here.

You'll probably need orange-blocking eyewear to clearly see the cabin, as the lively hue dominates it entirely. It was applied to the floor, pillars, headliner, steering wheel, dashboard, center console, door cards, and seats. And just so the occupants do not forget about the tuner, their emblem adorns various parts. Glossy black accents, metal trim, and carbon fiber can also be found inside. As for the icing on the cake, it is the starlight headliner.

There is no reference to the powertrain of this Audi RS 7 in the video released by the tuner on YouTube and embedded below. Nonetheless, it's not like this model is in dire need of a boost. After all, the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 is very potent straight from the factory. The 2024 model enjoys 621 hp (630 ps/463 kW) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque. The spec sheet claims it can do 0-60 mph (0-97 kph) in 3.3 seconds en route to a top speed capped at 155 miles per hour (250 kph).

We do not know how much the upgrades are either, but they likely cost a small fortune. As for a brand-new Audi RS 7 Performance, you're looking at $127,800 for the 2024 model year, excluding destination.
