The Audi is a great all-rounder but they need to step it up in the performance department! It's slower both on the track and on a straight line ! Come on, VW knows how to make fast cars on the track, they produce Porsche and Lamborghinis... Put this RS7 on a diet, stop making it understeer and give it grippy tyres! I want it to be faster!
