A couple of minutes ago, our publication had “spy” photos of the prototype of the new RS7 Sportback, which was tested at the Nürburgring race track. The car will be shown in the third quarter of this year.

Journalists caught two prototypes of the new Audi RS7 Sportback, which gave us a great opportunity to review them and enjoy the raspy talk of the V8 engine. We can assume that the 4.0-liter engine can offer even more power – in the current RS7 Performance it develops 605 hp.

According to insiders, Audi will find a way to “squeeze” all 650 horses from a V8, which is 20 hp. more compared to the powerful four-door coupe Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S.

 For the first time, the brand’s engineers started testing the new RS7 Sportback in November 2017, so it is likely that Audi will unveil the car later this year. Moreover, according to the slide show shown by the Spanish division of the company, the sports sedan will be officially presented in the third trimester of this year, that is, just a few months after the hot version of the S7 is shown.

  According to insiders, Audi is also preparing an electrified version of the new RS7 Sportback with power up to 700 hp. Using an adapted hybrid powerplant from the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, the flagship model of the A7 line is expected to combine a 550-horsepower version of the 4.0-liter V8 with two turbines and a 150-horsepower electric motor. All this power will go to the Quattro all-wheel drive system through an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox, which will provide an amazing level of performance.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Audi introduced a new electro-cross e-Tron Quattro.
