The concept, launched in early 2009, was powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged direct-injection diesel powerplant that is also available on the Q7 SUV since April. The engine generates a maximum power of 225 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, allowing the car, which weighs 3,968 pounds, to hit sixty in less than 7 seconds. As for fuel consumption, it achieves 37 mpg (6.35l/100 km) when mated to a 8-speed automatic transmission.
Anyway, the A7 Sportback used some design cues from the A5 Sportback but will be larger and feature a more aerodynamic look. LED lights at front and rear, 21-inch wheel and extended headlights, all contribute to the sporty appearance of the car.
As for the interiors, the show car boasts a lot of leather-covered parts, as well as a glass roof panel, wood trim and filigreed aluminum.
Audi hasn't commented on the news so far but we're still expecting for an official statement to put things straight a bit. However, one thing is for sure: Audi A7 Sportback will still make it into production, no matter if it does this later than expected. In fact, batter late than never...
