The 2019 Audi RS7 is a 700bhp BMW M8 Gran Coupe rival, and these are spy shots of its new production-ready body.

Due for launch next year, the Audi RS7 has been spotted testing in its new, albeit camouflaged, fastback skin. This is Audi Sport’s technological flagship and will likely be a petrol-electric hybrid that pumps out 700bhp. Which is more than either its Mercedes-AMG and BMW rivals.

News on the ground is that the new model will be available in two states of tune. First up is the 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing around 650bhp, 100bhp or so more than in its cousin, the Porsche Panamera Turbo.

The second engine uses the same engine but, in a first for an Audi RS, integrates hybrid technology in the shape of an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack developed by Porsche. Although the V8 in this guise is detuned to around 550bhp, the electric motor offers up 150bhp, which takes total output to 700bhp.

The pictures above reveal that the RS7 is considerably wider than the standard A7, hinting at a wider track. It also sports oval exhausts in the rear bumper and larger alloy wheels and a new front bumper with bigger intakes than on other A7 models.

These images will have to do for now while we wait for the RS7 to arrive, but things are pointing to a more focused and dynamic drive to the model it will replace.
