2017 Audi Q7 RS Model Leaked, Beats Bentley Bentayga Top Speed

By  | 

The 2017 Audi Q7 RS has been confirmed in a leak and the vehicle is going to be able to beat the top speed of the Bentley Bentayga.

This means that the Bentayga is no longer going to be called the fastest SUV in the world with a top speed of 187mph, as the 2017 Audi Q7 RS looks set to break it. The Q7 has lost a great deal of weight since the vehicle that came before it and while we have confirmation that the Q7 is going to take over as the new SUV with the fastest top speed, at the moment it hasn’t been said which engine is going to be powering the vehicle.

However, you can expect it to have a high performance TDI engine. It may not be a diesel V12 as this would add to the weight of the vehicle. Contenders may include the 4 litre twin turbocharged V8 from the X5M or the 5.5 litre V8 seen in the GL63 with some additional tweaks.

To help the 2017 Audi Q7 RS be the fastest SUV on the market you can expect to see a lower ride height along with suspension that has been tweaked to ensure it will deal with the additional stress.
