• Audi S7 Sportback caught undisguised days leading up to Paris debut

The countdown towards the opening of the Paris Motor Show is on its closing legs and it can only mean one thing: a steady diet of spy photos of some of the vehicles that are scheduled to be in attendance at the three-week long event.

One particular car that’s got our curiosities considerably piqued was spotted hanging out just outside the Nurburgring and best of all; the car had no exterior camouflage to shield it from the trigger-happy photographers. Yes, fellas. You’re looking at the first undisguised look at the new Audi S7 Sportback.

Granted, it’s only one photo, but from what we’ve gathered based on the tedious act of staring at this photo, the new S7 Sportback bears a few similarities from its S-line family, including the unmistakable front fascia of the car. Speaking of the front end, there are also resemblances to the A7, most specifically the headlights and the front grille. There are also a couple of notable features with the S7, not the least of which are the fog lights with chrome borders, a set of double-spoke alloy wheels, enormous brake discs, and a quad exhaust out back with two tailpipe tips on opposite ends of the rear bumper.

Needless to say, we’ll learn more about the S7 when the Paris Motor Show opens. By that time, we’ll have a clearer picture of what surprises this Audi S-line luxury ride has for all of us.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

I think the model of this car is now pointless for the Audi r8 is kind of successful and most loved car nowadays! However, teaser photos are necessary to make us more exciting and drool more for this car.

I would love to see one of these in my driveway! This is the most beautiful Audi yet, although I’d love to see Audi’s design language extend past the led light show and uninspiring taillights.
