Audi, the car manufacturer who crossed the milestone sales figure of 10,000 in the year 2013, hopes to continue the pace in the domestic market with the launch of the new car. The RS 7 Sportback which is said to be the Audi's most powerful offering in India comes with biturbo V8 engine under the hood, and the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km in 3.9 seconds and generate a top speed of 305 km.
"After the overwhelming response to our Audi RS 5, which further boosted our leadership in the luxury sports car segment, we are confident the new Audi RS 7 Sportback with its aesthetic design and impressive sportiness would establish new benchmarks in the performance sports car segment," PTI quoted Audi India headJoe King.
The company has sold 10,002 vehicles in 2013, registering an 11 per cent growth from 9,003 units sold during the corresponding period last year. The company sold the first RS 7 Sportback to Bollywood actor Salman Khan. He said that the Audi is common man's car too.
"This is the common man's car too ... common man who wants to be uncommon," Salman told reporters .When asked who would he like to gift the new model of Audi to, Salman said: "Let's see who deserves it. May be to somebody who actually looks good in it ... it would be Katrina (Kaif). I would not like to gift her though. Let somebody else gift it to her."
