Spied: 2012 Audi S7

The all-new production version of Audi’s A7 is still a few months off, but already the German firm has begun work on a hot ‘S’ version of the luxury sportback. Due to make its debut at one of this year’s major motor shows, early predictions are that the Mercedes CLS rival will debut at the Moscow show in August but don’t be surprised if it shows up at Paris a few months later.

If this is the case, there is every chance the new Audi could be joined by one or possibly even possibly two of its sports orientated siblings. Rumours have already begun that an RS7 version is on its way too, but before we get too far ahead of ourselves lets focus on the S7 spied in the pictures.

Despite the hypnotising camouflage, it’s not hard to make out the Audi’s muscular outline. The large wheels, rear spoiler, lower ride height, more aggressive front end and set of twin tailpipes emphasise this even further.

The close-up of the dash also gives the first clear indicator of what the interior of the new A7 will look like.

Under the bonnet there have been no confirmations about which cars will get which engines but it is expected the S7 will get either Audi’s new 3.0-liter V6 or possibly even a 4.2-litre V8, while it is expected the RS7 will most likely get the 580bhp version of Audi’s naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine mated to the firm’s new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Prices for the S7 are expected to start from around £65,000. For more details click here.
