The four-door coupe is an interesting idea. It’s for someone who need the functionality of four-door but wants to look like he/she is still cool enough to only need two. Jaguar has been putting a touch of this idea into its sedans for decades, but it has really started to become popular since Mercedes put out the CLS .
So now Audi is throwing its hat into the sedan/coupe ring, and we’re showing some rendered speculation about what the A7 may look like. This coupe-in-a-sedan’s-body should be based on Audi’s A6 architecture and be placed between the A6 and the A8 in the lineup. This will be the big brother to the future A5 sedan , and could possibly have a convertible version in its future. The engine range could start with a 2.8 or 3.0-liter V6 and top out as high as the twin-turbo V10 from the its cousin the Lamborghini Gallardo . The concept will be shown at the North American International Auto Show in January. Audi is hinting that what will be seen in Detroit will be very close to the production version, and sales could begin as early as sometime next year.
