If you weren't impressed by spy photos of the S6 and S6 Avant, perhaps these pictures of the S7 will be more to your liking.

Caught undisguised in Europe, the prototype gives us a pretty good glimpse at car's aggressive front fascia, aerodynamic side skirts and modified rear bumper. In typical S fashion, the model is also outfitted with a sports suspension, high-performance brakes (carbon ceramic ones on this tester) and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.

The interior appears to carryover without any major changes, but there's a sport steering wheel and S7 badging on the instrument cluster.

Power is expected to be provided by a 4.0-liter V8 engine with approximately 440 PS (324 kW / 434 hp).  This isn't a huge increase compared to the 5.2 FSI V10, but engineers were focused on improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.
