Audi has upgraded its A7 with a more potent version of its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre TDI engine to create the new A7 Competition. Celebrating 25 years of TDI technology, the new model features a power increase over the standard car, taking peak output to 322bhp.
A further boost function - activated under heavy acceleration - provides an extra 20bhp for a short period. The engine also has 479lb ft of torque available, alongside Co2 emissions of 162g/km and fuel economy of up to 46.3mpg. The model can hit 62mph in 5.1 seconds.
The engine is connected to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission, which can also be controlled via steering wheel-mounted paddles.
The A7 Competition comes in S-line specification, and so features a lowered ride height, 20-inch alloy wheels, painted brake calipers and discs and new badging. LED headlights are also available.
Inside, the car gets leather sports seats with an embossed S-line badge, contrasting stitching, aluminium and wood inserts and new door sills.
