As part of an ongoing series for the Audi Club North America print magazine Quattro Quarterly, ACNA editors recently visited Audi of America headquarters and got to take a closer look at several Audi exclusive builds created by those who know the order books the best. Case in point is this RS 7, built by the Product Planning department in order to explore the lesser utilized options and check boxes the Audi Sport GmbH craftsmen in Neckarsulm make available to them.

Just introduced on RS 6 and RS 7 performance models in Europe, Ascari blue is a medium dark shade of blue that works quite handsomely on this RS 7 performance. It's a subtler blue, darker than the likes of Audi's more well-known Nogaro, Sprint or Ara blues more commonly seen on the company's most sporting models.

Inside, the car gets black leather and Alcantara, accented with Mercato Blue contrast stitching. The cabin was further enhanced with matching blue contrast stitching on the optional Alcantara headliner and rarely seen matching leather covered seat bases.

This car also features the Akrapovic titanium exhaust system. Audi Sport has paired with this manufacturer on projects like the R18 LMP1 Le Mans car and the RS 5 DTM touring car. On those cars, the higher performance and lighter weight is critical. On car's like the RS 7, it may not be as critical to a race win but the sound and performance advantages certainly weigh in.
