Audi RS7 – New vs Old

The Audi RS7 is smooth to drive, quick off the line, and filled with luxury. But how does the newest model compare to a heavily depreciated example from 2016? Thomas and James talk about their favourite bits and pick apart their dislikes between the two. The $140k price tag on the new model can be a bit hard to swallow when a 2016 is just $69k. But Audi has done some updates and changes that may make all the difference. Will the new model RS7 be able to command its significantly higher price point than the older one? Or will it see similar depreciation making the ‘wait until it’s used’ option the better choice?

Audi RS7 0-60 Times with a Dragy

Thomas and James wanted to see how each Audi RS7 would perform in an off-the-cuff 0-60 test with a Dragy. Both cars were lined up at the same spot and launched in the same direction. The older of the two tested has the performance pack, which actually makes it have more horsepower than the newer model. Do you think the extra power numbers will make up for a faster 0-60 time? Or will the new RS7 work its updated mechanical wizardry to propel it off the line faster? We hope you enjoy the episode!

Thomas, James, and Throttle House are on Instagram

If you can’t get enough of Throttle House, you can follow the channel on Instagram @thethrottlehouse. Thomas and James each have their own personal accounts @thomasholland_th and @jamesengelsmen. Follow them for their hilarious antics and update announcements for what’s going on with the channel.

The guys are also excited to announce a secondary channel – Extra Throttle House. This is a place that allows for videos outside of the normal Throttle House production schedule and editing regime.
