Audi A7: Coupe and cabriolet revealed

Car Magazine is running a great special on Audi "scoops" and we would like to share the Audi A7 with you. Truly awesome-looking car!

Just as the A5 uses the A4 platform, so the A7 will be based on the new A6. But
the next-gen A6, which means a lightweight aluminium platform with various steel
reinforcements.Air suspension will be standard on high-end models, and unless
sales don’t surpass the expected 40,000 units, four-cylinder power won’t happen.
Instead buyers will be offered a based 2.8-litre V6 FSI or the new supercharged
3.0-litre V6. Oil-burning owners will pick between a 2.7-litre, and a 3.0-litre
V6 with either one or two turbos. Then if you can make sense of it all, there
will be various six and seven-speed manuals, autos and dual-clutch S-tronic
boxes.Audi will slot, no make that shoehorn, its 5.0-litre twin-turbo V10 into
the A7 to create an RS7, while the S7 will use a detuned version. Never fear
though, because a hybrid version will be on hand to balance your polluting ways.
