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.
