Artist renders this 2019 Audi RS7, and it looks so powerful

Last week, Audi’s luxury sportback, the 2019 Audi A7 made its debut. It isn’t only sleeker than its predecessor, but it is overall more refined too. After making its first public appearance, A7 fans quickly got to work and began rendering the said model, giving it even more performance cues. One of the renderings we noticed was that of a German artist named Tobias Büttner. Digitally, he gave the new A7 added RS performance pieces and it looks pretty mean.

Beginning with the front fascia, the new angular grille has been upgraded into an RS performance part. The standard base model comes with vertical slats, which have been changed into a honeycomb-style plastic mesh, the same with the side vents too. The front fender now gets a “Quattro” logo that’s displayed on the front fender, while the RS badge can be found on the grille.

As you can see in the photos, the 2019 Audi A7 rides on a new set of wheels that has been borrowed from the RS5 Sportback. The rear now has a more aggressive diffuser that has been given massive dual exhaust tips. To cap off the exterior look, the car has been lowered, and has also been finished in Audi’s signature Nogaro Blue paint job - making it look sportier than the standard model. The package may not look very dramatic overall, but it looks like it is ready for production.

2019 Audi RS7 gets rendered

Audi is now working on an all new A7 Sportback along with the new the RS7 and S7 variants. That said, it’s still a couple of years more before an RS7 will come strutting its way into the showrooms.

While waiting, Peisert Design has a vision of what the next Audi RS7 would look like. Taking its cues from the spy shots and leaked images of the new A7, the designer has adopted the same edgy design into the creative visual art which includes Audi’s more aggressive front grille and pointed headlamps.

While the rendering artist hasn’t touched the current model’s rear diffuser and tailpipes in oval shape, the redesigned tail lamps has been extended all the way to the Sportback’s wider rear end. Aside from these, Peisert has imagined the new RS7 to come with larger air intakes which is also flanked by black chrome lower lip at the front.

Audi’s booth at LA Auto Show will have 2016 RS 7 performance, 2016 S8 plus, 2017 R8 models

Audi has chosen the upcoming 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show as a venue to showcase its latest performance vehicles. These vehicles – the 2016 Audi RS 7 performance, 2016 Audi S8 plus, and 2017 Audi R8 – are all expected to feature the German premium carmaker’s eye for performance, technology and design.

What sets apart the 2016 Audi RS 7 performance from a typical RS vehicle is the presence of more power and better performance, as its name suggests. While it still features the impressive RS design that conveys its sportiness and refinement, its power has been upgraded from the usual 560 hp to 605 hp.

With this, Audi now has the RS 7 and the RS 7 performance to offer for those seeking the thrill of having more power either on the track or on the road.

Audi introduces RS 6 Avant and RS 7 Sportback Performance models

Audi’s RS range has two new ‘performance’ models -- the RS 7 Sportback and RS 6 Avant. These two additions make the RS badge proud with a 45PS increase in power to 605PS and 50Nm additional torque resulting in 750Nm total torque.

While it improves the output, resulting to a 3.7-second record for a 0-60mph sprint, the two models boast of having excellent fuel economy the RS is known for. In fact, it has the same low fuel consumption figures of its ‘standard’ counterparts that are the best in their class.

The peak 605PS power output and maximum torque of 700Nm are due to the 4.0-litre TFSI engine. But it comes with the overboost function capable of increasing torque to as high as 750Nm. For those interested, the RS 6 Avant and the RS 7 Sportback will be available in the UK for orders starting in November with the first deliveries scheduled for next February.

If last month, Audi introduced the 2015 A7/S7 Sportback Facelift, today the lineup was completed thanks to the arrival of the 2015 Audi RS7 Sportback Facelift. Do not expect a dramatic design update for this model as you will be disappointed! Still, the 2015 Audi RS7 Sportback Facelift comes with a new Singleframe grille with black honeycomb just like on other RS models, as well as with sharper corners.

Audi offers three optional packages – matt aluminum, gloss black and carbon – that make the RS7 Sportback even more attractive. Audi also said that the front bumper was updated too, but the modifications are small and you will not notice them.

The biggest update is the new headlights that have been adapted to the new Singleframe grille. The headlights are offered with LED technology as standard, while the optional headlights featuring the Matrix LED technology are offered with darkened trims. The taillights have a new interior design too.

For the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Audi prepared the exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition. Set to arrive at the dealerships in the United States in early summer, this special edition comes with several highlights such as Crimson Red safety belts and stitching throughout the interior.

Priced at $146,045, including destination and delivery, the 2014 Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition offers Black Valcona leather seats that have the RS specific honeycomb stitch in Crimson Red matching the safety belts.

In addition, Crimson Red stitching can be found on the dashboard, gear shifter boot, center and door armrests but also on the center console.

The all-new 2014 Audi RS 7 will have a starting price of $104,900 when it hit showrooms in the United States this fall. The German luxury carmaker unveiled the Audi RS 7 at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Bearing semblance of aesthetic design, innovative technology and track-tested performance, the 2014 Audi RS 7 is the latest member of the carmaker’s A7 model line, which is improved for the 2014 model year with the addition of the fuel-efficient A7 TDI clean diesel model, which is now offered with the A7 3.0T and S7 4.0T variants.

Audi RS 7 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0 TFSI V8 engine that provides up to 560 hp of output and 516 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top track speed of 174 mph. Through its innovative cylinder on demand technology, the Audi  RS 7 deactivates cylinders 2, 3, 5 and 8 at low to medium loads and engine speeds by closing their valves via electromechanical actuators.

Audi has just expanded its RS model lineup with the brand new RS7 Sportback and unveiled it at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Using a 4.0-liter TFSI twin-turbo V8, the RS7 Sportback carries 560 hp and 700 Nm of torque. As a result, it is capable to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed limited to 250 km/h or 155 mph.

With the optional dynamic package, the top speed is increased to 280 km/h (174 mph) while with the dynamic package plus the top speed is increased to 305 km/h or 190 mph. Yet the new top model of the model series consumes on average just 9.8 liters of fuel per 100 km (24.00 US mpg). The engine found on the RS7 Sportback features the cylinder on demand (COD) system, that is capable to deactivate cylinders 2,3,5 and 8 at low to medium loads and engine speeds.

This means that the engine acts as a four-cylinder until the driver accelerates more strongly again. As expected, the engine is mated as standard with the eight-speed tiptronic gearbox and drivers can choose between the modes D and S or change gears themselves using the shift paddles on the steering wheel or the selector lever.

There’s nothing about the 2011 Audi A7 that would surprise you with its 300-bhp supercharged V-6 engine, Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system and an 8-speed Tiptronic transmission.

However, Audi’s future sport-themed RS 7 is a different matter entirely. Set to debut in the United States in 2011, the Audi RS 7 will ride lower to ground and will have a sports suspension.

The Audi A7’s lines will become more attractive with its larger air intakes in the front fascia and with the use of 19-inch to 20-inch wheels.

At the Paris Motor Show this September, Audi will be unveiling its new A7 Sportback. Currently, the four-door coupe is in the final stages of development. The vehicle will go on sale in March 2011 in the UK. A V10-powered RS variant will also be included in the range.

The A7 is the first model based on Audi's new mid-size platform, which will highlight the seventh-generation A6 that will be released next year. With a length of 4950mm, the A7 was designed to rival the new Mercedes-Benz CLS and a production version of BMW's recently unveiled Gran Coupe concept that's due in 2012.

At the top of the lineup is an RS7 Sportback performance model that is equipped with a 580bhp version of Audi's naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine mated with Audi's new seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The other models in the lineup will be powered by any of the V6, V8 and V10 petrol and diesel engines available.

It has been quite a long wait for the 2019 Audi RS5 Sportback. For a time, all we’ve had to look at was its placeholder, the RS5 Coupe, which is now available throughout dealerships in the United States. Now, we have finally seen the larger and more sophisticated version of the said model, and it is stunning.

Physically, the RS5 Sportback model stretches out a little more compared to the standard coupe. The hips have been made wider by over half an inch (15 millimeters) on each side, and it has also been made lower by .28 inches (7 millimeters) making it sit closer to the ground. What finishes off the look would be the bigger wheels (of either the standard 19 inches, or the 20 inch wheels that come as an option) and larger air intakes.

Overall, the RS5 Hatchback looks a bit more aggressive than the average coupe. Customers could get the Sportback in any of the Gloss Black, Carbon, and Matte Aluminum optic packages.

Scott Keogh, President of Audi of America, said in his interview with Roadshow that the United States market will again be able to get their hands on a RS5 Sportback that will soon join the RS5 Coupe. It took a while for the automaker to mention the existence of a range-topping variant of the stylish four door. Information on its availability in different regions has also not been divulged yet.

But that is not all. In fact, Keogh mentioned that they have another surprise that they are working on, though he stopped himself from saying further and did not reveal what it was. Instead, he teased us by saying that there is a cool European model that they have not brought in to the United States just yet, and that he considers it to be his number one car, and they perhaps they will get it. But to date, he did not confirm any of these reports.

If you analyze what Keogh said even further, there are a number of possibilities for this. Keogh could be referring to an RS4 Avant, depending on the timeframe he has in mind. That is because the said model is already ready right now and that it only needs an executive to sign off so it could already be added to the US lineup. The only problem here is that it might take 25 more years for this model to become eligible for US import.

The Audi RS5 Coupe is a real stunner with its athletic looks and sporty performance. Regarded as a Gran Turismo among RS models by Audi Sport’s chief executive, the Audi RS5 Coupe offers 450 hp (336 kW) of max output and a 442 lb.-ft. (600 Nm) of peak torque, as derived from a 2.9 liter bi-turbo V6 engine. Getting a top-down version of the Audi RS5 Coupe is out of the question for now, but the good guys at ABT Sportsline are willing to offer a beefed up variant of the Audi S5 Cabriolet.

It is not exactly the RS5 Cabriolet, but ABT Sportsline’s creation is close – the ABT S5 Cabriolet. The most fundamental change made for the S5 Cabriolet is its power rating. As standard, a typical Audi S5 Cabriolet is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo engine that could deliver 354 hp (260 kW) of max output and 500 Nm of peak torque.

That’s nowhere close to the power rating of the dynamic mill inside the RS5 Cabriolet. However, the German tuner’s ABT Engine Control (AEC) made this already powerful engine become more dynamic, with the output and torque levels surging to 425 hp (313 kW) and 550 Nm, respectively. ABT Sportsline is also making this power tweak available for other body variants of the Audi S5.

The Audi A7 Sportback, whether you would like to call it a sportback or a four-door coupe, has always been a beautiful car. And this week, the 2019 model year will be debuting in Germany with an even more striking appearance since we first saw it seven years ago.

Beginning with numbers, it is a bit shorter than its predecessor at 195.6 inches long, and is now only 55.9 tall, so it appears to sit closer to the ground. Unlike the A8, it has a wider face and a lower grille, giving it a sportier appearance. The hood now has lines that lead to the broader front fenders. Like its predecessor, it has got a sleek roof that seamlessly plunges toward a pop-up spoiler. As for the trunk capacity, there is 18.9 cubic feet of storage that can be maximized to 49.1 cubic feet when the seats are folded down. The rear end gets one full-width tail light that stretches from one end to another, and is made up of 13 individual LED strips that varies in height across the width of the trunklid. Customers will be able to get wheels as large as 21 inches in diameter.

With a stylish exterior comes with a stylish cabin as well. It is light and airy with plenty of horizontal lines up the dashboard and door panels. In fact, the 2019 A7’s interior resembles that of the new A8. Despite its shorter length, passengers get an increase in headroom as well as rear knee space, thanks to the extra 0.8 inch interior length. A7 buyers will be able to choose from a five-place or a 2+2 seating option.

We are all aware that Audi has plans to reveal the 2018 A7 Sportback soon, specifically towards the end of the year. Though we expected a grand reveal and a full-sized vehicle, we were surprised by something much smaller - that is, a die cast scale model of the Sportback.

What just happened? Well, Autoweek.nl has leaked an image of the A7 Sportback, except it isn’t the real car. Rather, it is a scale model, which makes it much smaller than what all of us expected to see. Of course, this can’t beat the awesomeness of the real model. In earlier spy shots, the A7 and S7 will have a design that mixes together elements from the first-generation car combined with the Prologue series of concept cars.

Though the leaked image just shows a scale model, we could still kind of tell how the A7 Sportback will look. The A7’s face resembles that of the A8, and we already know that based on the spy shots we have seen before. What’s new is the fact that the scale model shows us a more sculpted hood and more body lines. The A7 has a wider single-frame grille, thin headlights backed with an array of LEDs, and more glass on the sides.

Audi currently does not have any fully electric model that they can call their own after the R8 E-Tron has been discontinued last year. But this year, they showed us concepts of the E-Tron Quattro and the E-Tron Sportback (at Auto Shanghai), and the good news is that the zero-emissions SUV will finally begin production at their Brussels, Belgium factory. The SUV will then be followed by its sleeker counterpart, the Sportback, in 2019.

What sets the E-Tron Sportback apart from the others is the fact that it is a “four-door gran turismo”, with a powertrain of 430 horsepower (320 kilowatts) at standard, and an impressive 496 horsepower (370 kilowatts) when the boost mode is activated. In just four and a half seconds, it can hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour). That’s very impressive for a full electric vehicle, but we shouldn’t be too excited until the production model has been tested, and that’s a long while from now.

In today’s world, there is this thing we call “range anxiety”. It simply refers to the stress or anxiety that people who own EVs get, knowing that their car runs on battery power, and that it can simply shut off when the battery gets drained. So the issue is whether they would get to their destination before they’ll have to recharge their vehicles, especially for long distance drives.

The largest gathering of Volkswagen and Audi cars in Europe is underway, and the German premium carmaker is displaying the third model of its G-Tron range at the 2017 Worthersee Meeting wrapped in special finish and with apparent aesthetic tweaks.

Audi unveiled the production version of the new Audi A5 Sportback G-Tron at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. Before the model’s eventual introduction to the market in early summer, Audi is making sure that the new G-Tron car gains more attention from the public by showcasing a one-off variant at the Worthersee Meeting.

The A5 Sportback G-Tron at Worthersee sports a customized two-tone exterior to make it more appealing. However, it isn’t a fully modified unit, unlike the VW GTI First Decade concept that is also being displayed at the event. Around two-thirds – starting from the front end -- of the exterior of this one-off A5 Sportback G-Tron is wrapped in dark grey finish. It then blends with a honeycomb blue finish on the rear side doors. This finish completely dominates the rear end of the one-off A5 Sportback G-Tron.

A couple of days ago, Audi announced an update in terms of the pricing of their 2018 lineup. With the price increase, several models will have more features as standard equipment while there will be more models that will have sportier interior and exterior design packages.

The Audi A3 Sportback E-Tron had always been a successful model since it was first released in the United States. Sales charts of the said model from January 2016 up until March this year indicate that the model is doing well. In fact, the model made up around 13 percent of all Audi A3 sales in its first eight months, and by last December, the percentage went up to 20 percent.

The 2017 model was first sold with a price tag of $37,900, and it soon increased to $38,900. And naturally, there will be a price increase for the 2018 year model, with the Premium trim at $39,500, the Premium Plus at $42,600, and $48,100 for the range-topping Prestige. That is about $600 to $1,300 more than the previous model.

Two years ago at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi presented the E-Tron Quattro to the public. This gave us an idea that they will soon be producing crossovers. The Quattro will be moving into production by 2018, and a year later, a coupe version of it will follow. This crossover-coupe they call the E-Tron Sportback made its debut at the Auto Shanghai in China just this week, along with two other electric concepts from competitors: the VW I.D. Crozz and the Skoda Vision E.

Similar to Volkswagen I.D. Crozz, Audi’s E-Tron Sportback also features light emitting diodes. The four-rings brand not only equips this new concept with full LED headlights and taillights. It also gets an illuminated Audi logo. Instead, it is supposed to have approximately 250 extra LEDs located around the front bumper, precisely on both sides of the corporate singleframe grille. But these lights do not only have one purpose - they are made to communicate with other cars on the road forming different light patterns - from shapes to numbers as seen on its concept video debut.

The E-Tron Sportback isn’t just about smart LEDs. At 4.9 meters long, 1.98 meters wide, and 1.53 meters tall, this coupe has a strong electric powertrain that can produce as much as 430 horsepower (320 kilowatts), and can reach a peak of 496 horsepower (370 kilowatts) when the boost mode is activated. Taking only 4.5 seconds, this little EV can accelerate up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill.
