All-New 2018 Audi S7 Drops Some Camo To Show Off What’s Coming

Audi is putting the final touches to the 2018 Audi A7 in the hot weather of Southern Europe, with our spies spotting once again the range-topping S7 version.

Now that the all-new A8 flagship has been revealed, Audi’s engineers can focus on the upcoming A7/S7 and reveal a few new details along the way.

For the first time we can clearly see the shape of the S7’s aggressive front and rear bumpers, while the slim headlights are also covered with less camouflage, showing off their LED signature.

The 2018 Audi S7 has definitely an angry face, with the big air intakes matching well the new and huge hexagonal front grille that debuted with the A8. The rear end also reveals more details, with the nicely shaped taillights united by a single LED strip.

Based on the latest version of the MLB Evo platform, the new Audi S7 will be around 100kg (220lbs) lighter than its predecessor. Under the bonnet we’ll probably find the twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 that debuted in the Porsche Panamera 4S offering at least 450hp, matching the current model in that area. 0-62mph is expected to come in around 4.5 seconds.

The interior design will be heavily inspired by what we’ve seen in the new A8, so expect to see a lot of touchscreen displays along with Audi’s latest Level 3 autonomous features and a self-park function via a smartphone.

There is a chance of Audi revealing the new A6 and A7 series at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, with the new models set to hit the market in early 2018.

    I hate the straight lines. I love the look of my 2012 A7. Even the refreshed ones look boring and this one looks even worse. What happened to the sexy curves Audi?

    • seriously

      The refreshed A7 looks like the original if you think that looks boring it looked boring when you bought the one you have…people say silly stuff in blogs…….

  • Nordschleife

    I can see this full width tail-light thing is going to find it way into all these models. WHY Audi WHY.

    Hopefully they don’t ruin the A7. It has an awesome stance and presence on the road, and it only gets better on the S7 and especially the RS7.

  • seriously

    I love the styling of the S7 and RS7 but I just feel Audi will ruin their chance at making a new take on the A7 you can almost guarantee it will look pretty much like the last one with a couple exra creases and a new grill like a refresh…..
