After revealing the super new model of Audi at the 2009 Detroit auto show, with A7 four-door coupe, the brand is set to unveil its production ready car by the month of September.
In this case, there are lots of possible factors like the new model may unveil at the 2010 Paris motor show. A source from Audi said that this new model will be debuted in Paris, according to the Autocar.
Similar to the Sportback concept, this new A7 will be a large 4-door coupe that is designed to give a tough competition to the Mercedes-Benz CLS, which is a new version, also set to unveil in Paris. With this, the comparisons of these cars are almost predictable to the BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo. Audi has planned to make the A7 an upscale model within its line-up, but on the other hand will also share its groundwork with the next generation A6 midsize sedan. Well, this is not at all surprising that Audi is planning for many different powertrain configurations that could be incorporated in its new model A7. However, a little shock occurs when it is heard that Autocar suggest Quattro GmBH subsidiary of Audi is mounting on high performance S7 as well as RS7 variants.
The base of A7 may get as a minimum each version of Audi’s new supercharged. This will possess direct injected 3.0-liter V6 engine, which then could be able to produce minimum 272 horsepower. According to Autocar, “The S7 could utilize a normally aspirated V-10 like the current S6, but wouldn’t be surprised if Audi installs its 4.2-liter V-8 instead” as said by the Autocar.
Besides this, the RS7 model may boast with 10-cylinder, as the rumors is also spreading that it could use a version – 5.2-liter V10 of the R8. Well, the reports indicate that this engine can easily produce almost 580 horsepower and is roughly the same as is boasting in the RS6’s recent twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V10.
Audi has high hopes with its new four-door coupe A7 that will come in the month of September at Paris, but for certain its new RS7 model may remain limited to Europe. What left next, is to see how much hold this new model can make in the car market after few months.
