This is the exclusive edition of the 2022 Audi RS 7, and it sure is exclusive. Audi says it will only build 23 RS 7s to this spec, so if you like the rare, this could be the RS 7 to watch.
So what do you get with the Exclusive Edition? The main attraction is a unique pearlescent Mamba Black paint that comes in black with blue undertones. We suspect the painting will speak for itself much better in person than these limited photos. You also get Sepang Blue stitching throughout the interior. Those blue accents can be found on the door armrests, center console trim, upper door panels, upper dash, seats, and floor mats. Audi says that several controls in the cabin are also adorned with Sepang blue braid.
Beyond the black paint and blue interior accents, this RS 7 comes equipped with just about every performance option you can spec. That means you get the ceramic brake package (with blue-painted calipers), the Dynamic Ride Control suspension, and the sport exhaust with black-finish exhaust tips. The 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 is the same and still makes 591 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.
Audi makes both its Carbon Optic package and Black Optic package standard for the Exclusive Edition. This means it has blacked-out badging and trim, along with a carbon fiber spoiler, diffuser and mirror caps. It’s also equipped with 22-inch wheels wrapped in 285-section-wide summer performance tires. Finally, the interior receives the Audi Exclusive extended leather package that covers as many surfaces as possible in black leather.
The starting price of the Exclusive Edition is $166,495. Again, only 23 will be produced in this spec, with Audi expecting them to ship sometime in late summer.

The first time our paths crossed was at a Mazda event at (and around) WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca (née Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, née Laguna Seca) for a selection of mostly unremembered vehicles. I mistakenly assumed Cammisa was...
