Some new spyphotos / pictures of the upcoming Audi RS7
So Audi is coming out with an RS7, no surprise. The surprise is that the RS7 is going to take the spot of what would be an RS6 sedan in the North American market. If you want Audi's twin turbo 4.0 TFSI motor aggressively tuned in a lighter body than the S8 the RS7 is going to be the only way to get it in the United States. This is somewhat of a downer as the C7 A6 body style is very attractive and some prefer it to the "four door coupe" A7.
The RS7 looks great in the spyphotos (disregard that S7 badge designed to throw people off) offering much more aggressive styling than the standard A7. Expect the car to mirror the RS6 drivetrain so a 560 horsepower 4.0 TFSI and an 8-Speed automatic. The official reveal will come soon at the Detroit Auto Show.
