Audi is slowly completing the development new RS7 Sportback 2020, the latest tests being held near the Arctic Circle.
The test car was shown with black alloy wheels that reveal massive brakes. The cabin also features slightly wider fenders to fit the larger wheels, as well as deeper side sills and new front and rear bumpers. The biggest trump card in the design is the double oval outlet tips.
We still can not say for sure which engine will use the RS7 2020. The German manufacturer is likely to use the same 4.0-liter V8 with two turbines in the Porsche Panamera Turbo and the Lamborghini Urus, with a power of more than 600kW. If this is the case, then the 8-speed automatic transmission will be tasked with sending the power to the four wheels through an upgraded Quattro system.
The most powerful version of the previous RS7 was the Performance version, which offered 597 hp from its 4.0-liter V8 engine with two turbines.
Some rumors say the new Audi RS7 will use the Panamera Turbo S plug-in hybrid, which in the case of Porsche delivers 670 hp. It is more likely to see the non-hybrid 4.0-liter V8, at least in the first models.
We expect the new Audi RS7 to reach a speed of 100 km/h for about 3.5 seconds after it arrives at the end of 2019, and will fight again with the Mercedes-AMG E63S and the BMW M5.
The interior of the new Audi RS7 will get the usual attitude from Audi Sport, which means sports seats, carbon elements, metal details and a combination of leather and Alcantara. We also expect the latest technology to emerge in the sports car.
