All-New Audi A7 Rear Lights Look Like Something Off A Chiron

We’re less than two hours away from Audi unveiling the second-generation A7 Sportback and we’ve already caught a glimpse of the new model’s rear end design.

Like this prototype from last month suggested, the lights at the rear of the all-new A7 aren’t represented by just a lone light strip. While the strip does follow the rear end’s contours and is otherwise straight, there are other graphics as well, above and underneath.

From certain angles, these graphics do remind us of the Chiron, though overall it seems we’re looking at an upside down setup of the all-new A8’s rear lights.

On the A8, the more complex visuals occur right underneath the main strip, whereas on the A7 it’s exactly the other way around – which is an interesting way to separate two models that may already look a lot alike when it comes to design language.

As for the car’s overall appearance when viewed from the rear, it simply looks sleek, if not simple, though not in a bad way. Gone is the old model’s droopy expression, leaving more room for the rear bumper to extend towards the taillights. You could argue that it looks less aggressive, but we’ll hold off any judgment until Audi shines some of that official lighting on the car.

    Holy molly… Love it… 😀

  • Nordschleife

    Definitely better looking in my opinion than the A8 taillights.

  • kachuks

    KITT would be proud.

  • Honda NSX-R

    I thought these taillights were rather Chiron-like to see when I saw them in action.

  • exeptor

    Good sign is that we don’t have to bother some fake exhaust :). C’mon Audi just show it.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    This is fucking cool.

    Looks cool…

    well it’s no surprise that bugatti is related to audi since they’re both from the vw group.

  • Blade t

    Looks cool….

  • Enter Ranting

    And the gimmicks keep on comin’. Remember when German cars were known for elegant, understated, refined design?

    • S3XY

      Lights are one of the most important things on a vehicle. The cool factor. These lights alone make me want to buy the car. Simple as that.

      • Enter Ranting

        OK, so it’s cheesy gimmicks for you. Noted. I’ll choose a car without the aftermarket Pep Boys light-a-rama look. It’s much more dignified.

      • Antonio

        Soooo true

  • Subi-Rubicon1

    Digging the coolness Audi is bringing to the table… lets hope the rest of the car is as cool.

  • S3XY

    Super duper badass

  • Stephen G

    I didn’t think Audi tail lights could get more annoying.

  • Karter Harmon-Wilkening

    By your command

    • Belthronding Tinuviel


  • Antonio

    OMG! However I still think the overall rear shape of the current A7 is something very special.
    Looking forward to see the whole car

  • Sure it looks amazing, but that’s because it’s an Audi. If Lexus did the same thing you all will have a totally opposite opinion.
