Audi has revealed a special A7 Sportback S line 3.0 TDI ‘Competition’ variant to help celebrate the company’s TDI 25th anniversary. It features various performance highlights to give it a distinct sporty theme.

Just looking at the exterior you can see the cool, fashionably demanding dark alloy wheels. These measure 20 inches and hide an impressive 17-inch disc brake package.

To keep up the sporty appearance the Competition gets Audi’s S Line package, which includes sports suspension lowered by 20mm, a discreet bodykit with subtle extensions front and rear, and red painted brake calipers.

Under the bonnet, the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 is boosted slightly with camshaft revisions to provide an additional 5kW. This leaves 240kW and a hard-hitting 650Nm of torque. Sprinting from 0-100km/h takes just 5.1 seconds, while fuel economy is rated at a reasonable 6.1L/100km.

The new edition will go on sale in international markets in August.

There are no plans for Audi Australia to introduce the model locally, despite the local arm previously launching the TT S line Competition and A1 S line Competition falling along the same theme.
