Default Audi A7


Fresh new renderings of the upcoming Audi A7 have come out. The 2+2 seater, four-door coupe, which will be ready for production in 2009, is already testing, hidden under thick plastic as a mule.

Several models, as per Audi model pyramid, will go under the name A7. The most obvious of them are V6 petrol and diesel offerings, ranging from a 3.2-litre 200kW/268 bhp up to a storming 5.0-litre bi-turbo V10 of some 426kW/570 bhp. A surprise package will be the 368kW/ 493 bhp V12 TDI, which is already testing in the R 8 and is being eyed for inclusion as the flagship engine for the Q7 SUV.

Both front-wheel-drive and Quattro will be on offer, the latter on a 60:40 rear-biased split for the extreme-performance models such as the RS 7. The car will share its underpinnings with the next A6, although it will slot in slightly higher than the five-seater, but below the A8, as WCF has repeatedly reported.

The A7 could make its debut at the New York International Auto Show from March 21 30, 2008. This makes sense since Audi, like everyone else, is gunning for the US market in a big way, and as our renderings clearly show, the low-slung roofline should be a hit among Americans. The most recent hit car, at the time, to offer such a roof design was the Chrysler 300C and to good effect.
Another car to jump onto the 4 door coupe bandwagon started by Mercedes.

Awesome!! Looks pretty good! Seems like Audi's moving into the more 'square & more lines on the body' look.
And quite a range of engines!!

The Z4 was the first car that entered my mind when I saw the pic !!

This car looks good, but the CLS looks waaay better especially from the rear three quarters.

WOW i'm blown away by the looks itself.And i agree with that it has some Z4 and CLS shades in it.Alloys look straight from Z4.
Seems A7 is something like what CLS for Merc,6 series for BMW.Hence it would have been created to be in their league

Default That's FANTASTIC!!!!

IMHO this is the only A series AUDI which can be easily distinguished from the remaining ones.
