If The New Audi RS7 Is Anything Like This, The Competition Should Start Worrying

Audi is preparing to launch an all-new generation of RS7 – and if it, as we suspect, looks close to this, then Ingolstadt will, in all likelihood, have a winner in its hands.

The rendering comes from Carlifestyle and takes the design of the new RS6 Avant and morphs it into the Sportback bodystyle of the existing A7.

It’s hard to deny that the new RS6 looks mean, and the RS7 looks even more aggressive than Audi’s new performance estate.

Up front, the actual RS7 will likely share the same fascia as the RS6, meaning a massive black grille, triangular air intakes and sharp headlights. It will also come fitted with large brakes and wheels as well as new side skirts. Spy shots of the car indicate that its rear will be updated with dual, oval-shaped tailpipes, a subtle trunklid lip spoiler and a beefier rear bumper similar in design to the RS6’s.

Powering the forthcoming 2020 RS7 will be the same hybridized, 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 as the new RS6 Avant.

This means it will deliver 591 HP and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque through all four wheels. Peak horsepower will be down slightly from the previous-generation RS6 Avant and RS7 Performance, which had 597 HP, but torque is higher thanks to the addition of the 48-volt mild-hybrid system.

The world of super sedans has moved on quite a lot in the past couple of years, thanks to the latest Mercedes-AMG E 63 S and BMW M5 Competition. Audi will be looking to take the fight to them with the latest RS7 and, given its latest stylistic choices as well as the potent powertrain, it should prove a force to be reckoned with.

    What is with BMW and Audi making these gigantic grills..? Seriously, who are these people in marketing that are giving them the thumbs up..?
    Ps. Yes I understand this is a render

  • Matteo Tommasi

    We should start worrying: it could destroy our eyes on sight.

  • Harry_Wild

    It is a “super” expensive sedan!

  • Dark Rebel

    Beautiful and futuristic looking. I like this aggressive design. People who want a soft play-do front end should get a soft FWD vehicle like the current Chevy impala.

    Part of me says this is gorgeous. But then the rational side of me says EVs are the present and future, and this expansive grille fascia is a sign of obsolescence.

    • Rimas Kurtinaitis

      A swan song to high-performance ICE cars. It is decidedly gorgeous, and we should embrace all such vehicles for the next four to five years, lest we forget what motoring used to be.

      • Andrewthecarguy

        Some truth here, however, I think 4 to 5 years might be a bit short – I foresee a side by side existence, for the next decade at a minimum, before an all out take over by EVs and complete death to ICE; maybe even longer.

    I don’t think BMW and Mercedes have anything to worry about.

    The E63S will continue to dominate, as usual…

    • Rimas Kurtinaitis

      Well, you think the wrong way. Simple as that.

  • Nastinupe1911

    This car makes me want to forget about buying that Miami condo and throwing it all away on this beauty.

    that front still looks dumb
