Several pictures of the 2011 Audi A7 have leaked ahead of the car's unveiling tomorrow.
As expected, the production version closely resembles the A7 Sportback concept which debuted at the 2009 North American International Auto Show. The front end features an aggressive bumper, LED headlights, and a single frame grille. In profile, the A7 suffers from a minor case of Panamera-itus. Thankfully, the sloping roofline mitigates the styling concessions of the rear hatch, but overall, it still leaves something to be desired.
Inside, the cabin boasts leather upholstery, wood trim, and a pop-up navigation system. The overall design is reminiscent of the A8, but there are subtle differences which make the A7 cockpit unique. The door pads are redesigned, the center console is revised, and the dashboard has more wood trim.
Under the hood, engine options will include a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 272 PS (200 kW), a 4.2 liter V8 with 377 PS (277 kW), a 3.0-liter TDI with 253 PS (184 kW), and a 4.2 liter TDI with 355 PS (258 kW). Regardless of what engine is selected, a seven-speed DSG transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive will be standard.
Stay tuned to WCF for full coverage of the A7's unveiling at the Pinakothek der Moderne museum in Munich.
