Spy pics of hot new Audi S7 reveal a range of styling changes; power to come from new 4.0-litre V8
13 June 2011

Audi’s hot new S7 version of the A7 has been spied undisguised ahead of its expected motor show debut at Frankfurt in September.

The Audi S7 will be powered by a new 4.0-litre V8 engine, a unit that will also act as an entry point for the new Bentley Continental GT.

But whether the all-wheel drive S7 will get the single-turbo 440bhp or twin-turbocharged 555bhp version of the engine has yet to be confirmed.

The Audi S7 will get a whole host of styling changes over the standard A7 range it is based on. These include larger alloys and brakes, a sportier front bumper with larger air intakes and quad exhaust pipes. A sports suspension set-up will feature, too.

The S7 is expected to be joined on Audi’s Frankfurt show stand by new S6 and S8 models as part of Audi’s attempts to steal some of the limelight away from the launch of the new BMW M5.
