Audi is one of the oldest car manufacturers in the world, and have been known to manufacture luxurious vehicles. They have dipped their toes in the Sports cars business as well, and overtime launched various high-speed vehicles. Now we’ll look over the fastest Audi cars on the market, and what sets them apart from everything else. Keep in mind that Audi is a fairly expensive manufacturer, and you’ll be looking at a very well made vehicle for the price. The speed isn’t the only thing that makes an Audi car special, but it’s build quality as well.
Fast cars in general are always a bit expensive than everything else, and even more so than the Street class of vehicles. Audi has managed to release something in each category, but despite all that, they are known for some of the fastest cars in the world.
Fastest Audi Cars – The top of the line!
Audi R8 Performance – The fastest Audi Yet!
Just like last year, the Audi R8 Performance continues to remain the fastest car in the Audi lineup. This is an extraordinary vehicle that has a V10 engine with 602 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. It features a 7-Speed transmission, with an all-wheel drive and a 5.2 -liter V10 engine. Most experts have praised the speed of the vehicle, and it has been known to easily reach 0-60 mph time in just under 3 seconds, and in some cases, under 2.8 seconds. This is extremely impressive, and for an Audi, a testament to their quality assurance.
The production of this series started way back in 2006, and it is after years of refinement, that this can easily stand toe to toe with the likes of Lamborghini Huracán EVO or the McLaren 570s. It can reach a top speed of 205 mph and will cost you around $198K.
Given the specifications of this vehicle, one would expect the pricing to be even greater, but Audi has still managed to release a luxury vehicle, with amazing speed at a fairly low cost. Interested buyers should look into the 2021 variant of the vehicle, and opt for the performance engine if they want to reach these speeds.
Audi RS7 – Right next to the R8!
Even though the Audi R8 Performance is the fastest car in Audi’s lineup, the Audi RS7 isn’t far behind. This vehicle has a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 591 hp, and a torque of 580 lb-ft. It can also go from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, which if you compared to the Audi R8, isn’t that bad at all, and most consumers can’t tell the difference, nor does it really matter in the long run.
This vehicle has a top speed of 190mph, and with its luxurious design, there isn’t much to complain about. It is also cheaper than the R8 but has a lot of the features you would expect from a car manufactured by Audi. This means that both the interior and exterior have a luxury finish. If you are a fan of good looking vehicles, this is something for you.
The newer models also have ceramic brakes for improved agility, and a newly designed steering wheel to match the modern look of other Audi vehicles.
Audi RS3 – Another great option!
Now that we have the big two out of the way, let us look at another option which is far more economical and offers a lot of great features that one looks for in a fast Audi car. This brings us to the Audi RS3 which is a fairly decent vehicle that offers a lot of the interior and exterior qualities you would expect from an Audi car. The vehicle has a horsepower of 390 and a torque of 354. It can go from 0 to 60mph in less than 3.9 seconds. This is extremely impressive when you compare it to the models we already discussed which are on the higher end of Audi cars. This vehicle also has a top speed of 155 mph and can easily rival most vehicles in the same price range.
It also features full LED headlights and taillights with dynamic rear indicators. It retails at $56,200 and is fairly cheaper when compared to the higher-end models from Audi. If you are on a budget, but still want to experience one of the best cars on the market, you can’t go wrong with this one. You will be satisfied with the quality Audi offers.
Now, keep in mind, this is still a fairly expensive vehicle. However, the features it does offer really make it worth the price. Audi’s wide range of vehicles gives consumers a good idea of what they can purchase; plus, the variety is still there if you are willing to purchase a car that can easily rival other company manufactured cars.
So, there are a bunch of vehicles and categories of Audi vehicles now, and because of the sheer demand for every type of consumer, there is a lot of variety. Whether you are interested in a high-end car, or something of a budget, Audi has you covered and provides a luxury interior and exterior experience in a variety of budgets. When it comes to the fastest Audi cars, however, there is nothing that can rival the Audi R8 Performance, which has been the top tier vehicle from Audi for a few years.
Followed by that is the Audi RS7, which is another excellent vehicle, but at a much lower price value. Most consumers will want to go for this one as it offers a lot of the features the R8 has, and the difference between the top speed isn’t that high either.
Lastly, we looked at the Audi RS3, which is another great budget vehicle with many of Audi’s signature qualities when it comes to the interior and exterior. This means that you can purchase a car with a lot of the benefits at a lower price tag.
