Via WorldCarFans we have come across some clear spyshots of the upcoming 2011 Audi A7, built for customers looking for a sporty version of the A8. The prototype was spotted near Audi offices in Germany ahead of its late 2010 release.
The pictures show the third brake light running over almost the entire width of the rear glass, but also the rear tail lights. Bright headlights will match up with fog lights integrated into the bumper.
Rumours suggest the vehicle to get a 3.0 liter direct-injection petrol engine, a tubocharged V8 petrol and a V8 turbodiesel. All engines will be paired to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive. The exhaust will lead to dual or quad tailpipes.
The official debut of the A7 will be late August at Auto Salon Moscow or in October at the Paris Motor Show. The car will be introduced in the US in 2011 for a price tag of about $ 80,000.
