After finally seeing what the A7 Sportback model looked like, people have already started thinking ahead as to what the future RS version will bring. This rendering is from a guy who imagined it with an RS4 chin, RS5 grille, rotor 5-spoke RS style wheels, and chrome mirrors. Add Audi’s usual Sprint Blue exterior color for the RS models and you will be that much closer to visualizing what the future may hold. The new RS model is expected to debut in 2011.
The A7 Sportback will hit the streets with a 2.8 FSI engine producing 201hp and 280Nm, a 3.0 TFSI engine that produces 296hp and 440Nm, a 3.0 TDI producing 210hp and 400Nm, and a 3.0 TDI producing 242hp and 500Nm. However, for the RS version Audi will bring a new 4.0T FSI twin turbo V8 engine. There are also rumors about a 580bhp version of Audi’s naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine in combination with the firm’s new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
We’ll hit you up with further details once we receive them.
