The image of the new Audi RS7 Sportback has appeared on the Web.July 22, 2019
The German novelty will compete with the “charged” Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. The official presentation may take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show, this fall.
Audi is a fan of cool sedans, offering the A5 and A7 Sportback, although it is technically still a hatchback. Both were available for some time in a more powerful S-version, and the youngest of them in 2018 for the first time received a “hot” RS modification. The previous generation RS7 fought for the consumer with the Mercedes CLS 63 AMG and BMW M6 Gran Coupe, but in the upcoming new iteration it will have to compete with the 4-door coupe AMG GT and M8 Gran Coupe.
Independent artists tried to present a new RS7 Sportback in anticipation of its official debut, which is expected in the coming months.After seeing the new S7 Sportback and knowing how the sports division of Audi Sport is very restrained in updating the design of the car for the high-performance RS, it is not difficult to imagine how the competitor Porsche Panamera Turbo will look like as soon as it is introduced.
These “fat” air intakes on the front bumper hint at a powerful engine hiding under a smooth hood – we expect a 4.0-liter petrol V8 twin-turbo. The old version of the RS7 Performance offered almost 600 horsepower, and it is likely that the next generation model will have about the same power as standard. It is rumored that the hybrid version, which will appear later in the life cycle, will increase power to 700 hp. due to the use of the power unit from the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
Meanwhile, the standard RS7 Sportback may appear at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, it is quite possible that the updated RS6 Avant wagon will also show us there.
