The upcoming Audi S7 Sportback is scheduled for the Paris Motor Show. Read the latest intel here.
One thing we know about Audi is that they are very consistent with their S-car design and design cues. Given this, we can take a guess at how the S7 will appear and feel safe in suggesting this guess will be accurate. It is likely the car will wear bodywork from the A7 S-line and include stylistic changes consistent with the most recently revealed S-car – the 2011 TTS. We’ve added these cues to A7 S-line images for our rendition.
Most intriguing to performance enthusiasts is just what engine will reside under the hood. The idea of a revised version of the old V10 has been kicked around and garnered momentum on the pages of magazines and within the blogosphere but our sources have been suggesting the V10 is not consistent with Audi’s efficiency efforts internally referred to as ‘downsizing’. Our intel and a few assumptions suggest the car will be powered by an all-new twin turbo 4.0T FSI that’s closely related to the new base V8 engine confirmed with little detail in PR materials for the Paris-bound new Bentley Continental GT.
