The Audi A7 will be officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, according to reports
Autocar reports that European sales of Audi's new sportback is likely to start early in 2011.
Alongside some V6 petrol and diesels engines, the A7 is expected to come in a hardcore RS 7 model. It will most likely use Audi’s 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine, churning out 433kW (580hp), although the 5.0-litre TFSI V10 from the RS6 with its 572 bhp (427 kW) could be another candidate.
Powering all four wheels will be a 7-speed double clutch gearbox.
The Audi A7 is pitched as competition to the Mercedes-Benz CLS, Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide.
