Last week, Audi quattro GmbH chief, Stephan Reil, confirmed that the upcoming RS7 would make its world debut in January 2013 at the Detroit Auto Show. Today, because we want to help you get an idea on what it will look like, we have created a rendering of the next luxury sports sedan.
The upcoming Audi RS7 will be distinguished by the usual RS design elements also seen in models like the recently launched RS6 and RS5. These elements include a new single-frame grille with beveled upper corners featuring a high-gloss, anthracite gray honeycomb structure, a revised hood, sharper edges, a dual-exhaust system with two oval exhaust pipes, a larger diffuser, and a rear spoiler.
It is also rumored that the next RS7 will likely be mechanically identical to the recently launched RS6 Avant, meaning it will be powered by a 4.0-liter TFSI V-8 engine with an output of about 560 ponies and a top speed of 190 mph.
