    Funny you should mention that - my buddy's dynoed at 657 rwhp when brand new (900 miles) - strongest stock Hellcat the dyno shop had seen at that point. That's part of why he runs 10.8s...

    A bone stock, (RWD), from the factory car, running low 11's is not impressive?? I am in no way an American car fanboy. But having a C7 Z06 in my garage... I can tell you, the out of the box performance is impressive!

    Of course they're both impressive, relative to what one could buy 10/20 years ago they're all light years ahead, there has never been a better era to be a gear head. That said, we're all 4Rings guys/girls (maybe) here so none of us are likely to think another car is more impressive than Audi's flagship sedan. My last justification for the RS is that despite being rated at 100+ HP less and giving up 130+ CI to both the Z06 (and weighing about 1/2 ton more than this one) and Hellcat, neither would want any part of the RS in a "true" street race.

    I don't mean to say that. Yes, low 11s is impressive. It does well. But the car's been built up on the internet as a mid-10 second monster, and relative to that I have been unimpressed by my real world encounters with the car. That's all I meant to say. Didn't mean to dog on your car as with very little mods it would whoop up on my car.

    I'm sure the Z06 would pull, stock for stock. Some unflattering videos were posted in 2015 noting mods on the RS7s but conspicuously not on the Z06 (though without a doubt the Z06 had to be modded). Misleading.

    I get the "kinda" as I ran DRs on my Saleen and could drive them on the street.

    But even though we see more and more streetable drag radials, DRs, no matter how streetable, are not street tires. If you have drag radials on the car, you're running drag radials. No hellcat is running 10s on any kind of street tire from what I've seen

    Super impressive in itself but not so much when the car was made out to be ripping mid 10s from the factory.

    I came from american muscle so I get the appeal but I'm with Chris, the new Z06 has under-performed from expectations

    Yeah, but it's still got enough power to put an "oh shit this car is fast" look on your face!

    But of course, the RS7 is a feat of amazement! An almost 4500lb executive Saloon that can put up the numbers it does... is nothing short of astonishing!

    Oh god yes. A friend had one (recently sold it) and it was STRONG. I just dislike corvettes despite their obvious bang for the buck

    Found this from Australian Auto site - some evidence base on the trap (if they're using trap or just a pbox for speed) that the performance may be faster.

    May not actually need to be said, but: Both cars were tested by the same publication, using the same testing procedures, and the documented performance increase is as clear as it could be. It's also just about what you might expect from some 70-odd (lyin' Audi, again...) extra horsepower, so - case is closed. (as if it will ever be...)

    Now why would I do that when this speculation and ongoing discussion is far more entertaining .

    Joking aside: if we assume that any two given Audi RS 7 Prestiges run similar times... and we then add a third into the mix with enough additional factory-quoted horsepower and torque to make a tangible dent, it seems reasonable to assume it's going to be just a little bit faster which is what the rags seem to be supporting.

    The only useful data I have for now is the GPS-measured (Solo box) 0-60 and 0-100 runs both of which, after many more additional attempts and adjustments to determine optimal car setup, better the Car and Driver numbers. I'm taking the car to Vegas in a few weeks and I might well have the chance to run it there assuming the weather holds... fingers' crossed. For completeness, 0-60 is at 3.11 (managed that three times) and 0-100 in 7.1 seconds which I strangely seem to hit most of the time (even when the 0-60s of that same run were slower... can't fathom that one).

    // EDIT: by the way, the optimal setup is not dynamic mode--I lose at least 2 tenths on the 0-60s in that mode. Instead, it's individual with everything cranked up to 11 except dampers and steering (the latter 'cause I'm a wuss).

    LOL - right?

    Serious question, though - I've read from multiple sources (including this C&D test) that DRC-equipped cars ride very poorly. What's your experience/opinion?

    In comfort mode, I think it's just fine... but I've not had enough experience with RS 7's fitted with air suspension so I can't really contrast the two. My wife's driven it and she chose a Ford Explorer over an X5M because of ride quality; she finds the RS 7 fine, too, in comfort mode (which, as far as she's concerned, is the only mode it has). Compared to my last car, a BMW M6 Gran Coupe, there's not much in it for day-to-day driving comfort. In dynamic mode, Audi's DRC is rigid--really, really rigid... which is good for b#lls out racing/cornering but not much else. My guess is you could strap a 6-year old's go cart to the back of my car when in dynamic mode and it'd ride more smoothly than what's pulling it. But again, I'll still grab dynamic mode when I'm pushing the limits of traction.

    Nod, agreed on the elevation... definitely sub-par conditions. But if it's still faster... then we have our answer. If not, I can blame the altitude and lack of air . Win win for me...

    They've already hinted is that the RS7P is quicker in the 1/4 mile...
    this would be my assumption...

    Serious question, though - I've read from multiple sources (including this C&D test) that DRC-equipped cars ride very poorly. What's your experience/opinion?

    ride poorly?? believe this is subjective more than anything.

    Having had a C7 ZO6, I can tell you that stock vs stock on the street and from a standing start an RS7 performance should have the edge. It's unlikely even a hero run would produce an even result, just not enough traction even with 335s out back. From a roll I would expect the Z06 to pull slightly until it starts to overheat. (Not joking, if it's your 3rd run and it's a warm day expect the car to start pulling power) On a drag strip, hypothetically, the ZO6 has the ability to beat the RS7 performance. The reality is that you would need an absolute hero run in the ZO6 to pull it off. The launch control in the ZO6 doesn't really work... at all... But if you're really good at traction sensing and can feed in the throttle super fast without excessive wheelspin that car freaking FLYS. Traction is always a problem, even on a prepared surface. I wish I still had mine in addition to my Audi. If I still had it, I would be happy to show you all what I mean. All in all, great car though.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scyYfbL5P9w Skip forward to about 16:50 - these Mags can't ever seem to get an RS7 below 11.50 in the 1/4, but either this one was a real dog or they were running at altitude because its trap speed is well below what my non-P trapped at 1700 ft DA. Either way, this test seems to indicate there is no difference since most other mags show 11.50 for the 2014 etc...Non-P RS7.

    RS7 Performance really faster than a standard RS7 Prestige?

    There's a chance I could make it to the track tomorrow with my RS7 Performance (not yet tuned). However, there are a couple of issues that might alter the results. First of all I've never been to the track before, and never run an official 1/4 mile. Second, we are running at altitude here in Utah the track is at 4400 feet. Also, I need to figure out where to borrow a helmet. And if we're just trying to get baseline numbers for an RS7 performance what kind of fuel would I run? All I've ever put in it is regular premium pump fuel. 91 octane is the highest the pumps carry in Utah at our altitude.

    Hmm- you're at a little bit of a disadvantage there- we can correct for altitude but the fuel will be a bummer. Can you get race gas -104 or 100 you can mix?- even on stock tune that will help. Any Snell 2010/2015 motorcycle helmet will qualify and heck if you tell them you have no idea what the car runs you may get to make the first pass without one. I've seen video of a stock RS running 11.80's at Bandimere and that's 5749ft so you should best that. Message me if you need pointers or any help what to do- you'll love it, where are you going to RMR?

    Yes - if I go it will be at Rocky Mountain Raceways. I can look into race gas - I've just never used it before

    It's not looking good for tomorrow I can't get anyone to cover me at work. I'm not sure how much longer I can go before I get it tuned. Hopefully I can make it out to the track and test it stock before either the weather gets too warm, or I get it tuned.

    The heat and altitude destroyed my RS7's feel when I was in Vegas last weekend (80s and up @~4,000ft) so before taking it to the track, I decided to time a few WOT 60-120mph (on a private road, of course) and some 0-60s. The WOT pulls felt sluggish (and that's a compliment) and the 0-60s were down a full 0.4 seconds on that crap 91octane pump fuel so I gave up even taking it to the track. I did, however, enjoy hitting questionably legal speeds through the desert but the side winds were too strong to push it to the limit... bummer.

    Will be getting my Performance model in within a couple of weeks... I'll test out the 1/4 mile, however it'll be at Bristol Motor Speedway (Tennessee), where the elevation is upwards to 2k. Although, there is another standard RS7 that usually makes a few runs so it'll give a good comparison if he shows up!

    I'm having a good day--that's twice my particular RS7 model has *perhaps* earned her $$$ // if you follow this forum, you'll understand my elation

    So perhaps the Performance model + APR does have something just a little 'more' to offer -->


    ... these were the conditions (taken just after the run) -->


    Joking aside, this is statistically insignificant for various reasons (not reproduced as yet; new unproven device; lucky one-off, etc.) but, for one, it's fun to hope and two, DAYYYEMMMMM! The APR tune was @93 octane on 92 octane pump-gas. The road surface was very warm as were the tires and the evening cool-down was rapid so I took her out for a quick run... perfect conditions to my mind.

    I know and agree that this needs to be repeatable and, more so, *track proven* but until then... nur nur nee nur nur

    My post aside: me too... well said! It has a real "community" feel to it... and I'm very, very new here but, even so, my feelings are more than well-founded.

    So that said and building on gta7's opening line... thanks, guys--the help, enthusiasm and willingness to entertain light-hearted digs as well as the friendly competition has been greatly appreciated.
