Expect that the official presentation of the Audi RS7 Sportback 2020 model year will take place this fall; it is quite possible that the show will take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Sales should begin before the end of this or the beginning of 2020 in Europe, after which the car will go to other markets.

A large sports sedan (technically a hatchback), under the hood of which is a 4.0-liter V8 gasoline engine, was recently spotted on the Nürburgring racetrack. It is reported that the new 2020 model year is undergoing final testing before the official release, which will be held in the third quarter of 2019.

A local resident posted a video on his YouTube channel, which captured several prototypes of a German sports car. It’s funny that the first one has the “A7” and “55 TFSI” nameplates, but it had oval exhaust pipes typical of RS versions. Another test vehicle received full camouflage, hiding what looks like a full serial body, judging by the convex wings and massive front bumper air intakes.

Other clues that indicate that this is not the usual A7 are the big wheels and another rear bumper, which contains a pair of hefty exhaust pipes.

Mercedes-AMG currently offers the GT 63 S sedan with a capacity of 630 hp, but Audi is expected to set the bar even higher with the RS7 Sportback, increasing the power of the V8 engine to 650 hp. It is also reported that, over time, a hybrid version of this model will appear on the market, which will already offer 700 hp. Under the hood of the latter will be the same hybrid unit, which is equipped with a Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. But probably the electrified version of the Audi RS7 Sportback 2020 will not be shown soon.
