With people growing impatient waiting for the new Audi A7 to be launched, renderings of the car have started being splashed all about quite liberally. Most of everything about the car is known and therefore the task of rendering is not so difficult one.
The A8 and 2012 A7 have been said to hold similar looks. Sportback concept was a preview of the A7 and shown last year at the Detroit Auto Show. The difference between the A8 and A7 is that the A7 would be more oriented towards the luxury segment and functionality wise superior. Debuting in September at the Paris Auto Show and sales starting in spring 2011 the A7 would have the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the Porsche Panamera, and the Aston Martin Rapide as its close competitors.
Three engines are going to be used to power the Audi A7. A 2.8 Liter FSI and 3.0 Liter TFSI V6s as well as a 4.0 Liter TFSI V8 all three different direct gasoline injection engines. Then there is the diesel version also. This would have a 2.7 Liter V6 and a 3.0 Liter TDI V6 that would either be turbocharged and twin charged versions of the present one. All engines would be mated to a dual clutch, seven speed automatic gearbox and have an all-wheel drive
