We have found the first spy shots of the upcoming Audi A7 and even an artist’s impression on how it might look like. If it looks like this, we just have to say: “Bring it on!”.
Don’t get fooled by the looks of the spy shots, Audi is using the Audi A8 body for testing the Audi A7.
Audi’s answer to Mercedes’ CLS four-door coupe has hit the road in mule form. At first glance it is clear to see this Audi A7 mule is wearing a slightly modified front end of an A6 combined with an A8 body. Closer inspection reveals the Frankenstein nature of this mule with a shortened trunk and a rear bumper which is hiding a new exhaust system.
The A7 is expected to debut as a design concept in early 2008 and market debut at Frankfurt 2009. Much like the A8, the A7 will get the entry level V6 and V8 petrol and diesel engines and then non-aspirated 309 kW (420 hp) Lambo V10 in the S7 and 426 kW (580 bhp) bi-turbo V10 from the RS6 in the RS7.
