India-bound Audi RS7 spotted playing in the snow

India-bound Audi RS7 spotted playing in the snow

-    The new-gen RS7 Sportback will be powered by a new twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8.

-    Expected to put out 650bhp with all-wheel drive.

-    Might arrive in India by 2020 after a global debut next year.

Audi spent the summer with the new-gen RS7 at the gruesome Nurburgring. Now, as the official reveal is inching closer, the Ingolstadt-based carmaker is in Lapland with the performance sedan for winter testing. A test mule was recently spotted there with minimal camouflage and several aggressive elements.

Appearance wise, the new imposing fascia of the RS7 is joined by bigger air intakes with black mesh finish on the grille. The height has been lowered while the simple looking yet large wheels on the test mule might have been changed for striking looking ones on the production model. At the rear, the sloping roofline is complemented by massive oval exhaust tips on either side. The large performance brakes are hard to miss. 

Over the standard A7, the potent RS7 will pack in the new twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 which will be capable of putting out around 650bhp. In comparison, the current range-topping RS7 puts out around 605bhp. The power will be sent to Quattro all-wheel-drive system channelled through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 0-100kmph time is expected to be under 3.5seconds. 

According to reports, Audi might also bring in an electrified powertrain for the sports sedan. It will be powered by the same unit seen under the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid since both the brands are a part of the Volkswagen Group. 

The new-gen Audi RS7 will go on sale in 2019, following a reveal at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It might arrive in India by end-2019 or early 2020 as a part of the Audi product offensive.
