The Audi A7 is barely on sale, but rumors are already starting about the high performance RS7 that many expect to appear in the next couple years.
With torque-vectoring all wheel drive, carbon ceramic brakes and an adjustable suspension, the RS6 should have the chassis upgrades to match the rumored 600 horsepower twin-turbo V8. With the next iterations of the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG destined to be some of the best luxury sedans ever, the A7 needs to be superb if it wants to compete with such rarefied company.

Audi has launched a new website in the Netherlands proclaiming that the upcoming A7 Sportback model will be unveiled before the month’s end.
Little is known about the new model, other than it is derived from Audi’s Sportback concept car. Competing against models like the BMW 5 Series GT, Audi is tipped to have built the A7 as an alternative to the A8. Not only will this help Audi expand its top-tier offerings in Europe, where a sportback model like the A7 would be more popular, but it will also help Audi attract less traditional buyers in North America – a market where it struggles to compete.
Audi will likely offer the same engine selection as that found in the A8, including the 372-hp 4.2-liter V8 motor, however, rumors have suggested a new direct-injection 3.0-liter V6, Audi’s supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and even a twin-turbo V8 for an RS7 model.
Audi is planning to launch a high-performance RS version of its upcoming A7 Sportback model. According to a report by AutoCar, the standard A7 model will debut at the Paris Auto Show this fall, with the RS7 joining the lineup the following year.
Like the RS6, the 7 will get a twin-turbo version of the Lamborghini-sourced 5.2-liter V10 engine, making roughly 580-hp. Other engines likely to appear in the A7 include Audi’s new supercharged V6, a 4.2-liter gasoline V8 and a diesel V6 for the European market.
Audi has confirmed that the A7 will be sold in the U.S., which gives us hope that after being denied the RS6, Audi fans might just be able to appreciate the wonders of a 580-hp twin-turbo Audi on this side of the Atlantic thanks to the RS7.
