The NSW Police Force has taken delivery of a brand-new Audi S7 Sportback, set for use largely for public relations and community events.
Delivery of the 331kW/550Nm monster comes as part of a 12-month loan program from Audi Australia, shortly after an equally-impressive Audi RS 4 Avant finished its duties in the Lake Illawarra LAC.
The livery was inspired by a social media campaign from 800 Audi Australia Facebook participants last year. Andrew Doyle, managing director of Audi Australia, said:
“We are pleased to continue to support the NSW Police Force as they engage with the youth and wider community in the Lake Illawarra region. The Audi S7 Sportback has a striking presence, thanks to its sophisticated design and the sound of its extraordinary twin-turbo V8 engine, and so it is perfectly suited to making an impact at the various events it will attend throughout the course of the next 12 months.”
Commander of Lake Illawarra LAC Zoran Dzevlan says he hopes the German muscle will help spark up a conversation with their local police, aiming for a safer community vibe.
“Our use of the S7 Sportback will encourage people of all ages to introduce themselves to local police, using the car itself to help start up a conversation. The Audi S7 Sportback provides an exciting and visible platform for our community and youth engagement activities,” Dzevlan said.
The Audi S7 Sportback produces 331kW and 550Nm from a 4.0-litre TFSI twin-turbocharged V8, running from 0-100km/h in just 4.6 seconds. It costs $180,716, excluding on-road costs.
