Spyshots: 2012 Audi S7 Caught Undisguised

The guys over at MotorAuthority have come across the first spyshots of the brand new Audi S7. The main differences between the ‘normal’ A7 and the sportier S7 are the exterior and interior looks and the powertrain.

If you look closely at the external looks you will immediately spot large mesh panels taking the place of the lower air dams and fog light locations, creating additional air intake necessary for the rumoured 394hp 4.0 liter V8 engine and cooling for the larger brakes.

At the rear, the S7 mule has dual round exhaust pipes instead of the integrated trapezoidal units seen before on the concept. Additionally, it has an integrated hatch spoiler instead of the medium-sized standalone wing on the earlier prototypes.

The S7 will not be the most powerful member of the series. A RS7 is rumoured as well, equipped with a 5.0 liter V10 twin-turbo engine producing over 600hp. Both cars will feature four-wheel drive and any gimmick available for any other Audi model.

  1. there’s no distinquishing between the cars anymore, A4 is a A3 sedan, a5 was a A4 coupe, until they released a 4 door A5, now this bigger version of a A5, and the a8 is a long wheel base A4.

    just like how bmw did it.

    the X1 which you may think of as equivalent to the 1-series car, though of course it is longer than this and closer in size to the 3-series so let us say this is the equivalent to the 3-series but with the option of 4×4’.

    Then of course we have the new X3. With the launch of this car, you will really start to see the sense of our strategy because it is of course not as big as the 5-series, that would be ridiculous, but is closer in size to a 3-series so let us think of it as like a 3-series but with the option of 4×4’.

    Finally of course there is the X5. Many perceive this car to be large, perhaps too large, but in fact it is some 42 millimetres shorter than the 5-series sedan. This is a fact that may surprise some people, but it really is vital to remember that the X5 is not even as large as our medium range car and actually offers the footprint and agility of a 3-series, but with the option of 4×4


  2. looks like someone steped on the back of the car and the rear suspension broke.

    the reason y i have it for audis is because my dad has an a4 cabriolet.it broke down 8 times and it only has 100k miles. that may not seem like a lot but remember the car is german

  3. Yes, the Audi RS7 will be presented late 2011 in Grankfurt on the IAA in Germany.
    But the RS7 is likely to get a turbocharged V8 with around 550 hp, because the V10 is too old and too haevy! ;)
