Watch: The Audi S7 Testing at the ‘Ring

Watch: The Audi S7 Testing at the ‘Ring

Audi has been busy at the Nurburgring, putting an S8 (that we posted about yesterday) and an S7 through their paces around the legendary track.

Although the new S7 is still shrouded in mystery, the quad-tipped exhausts and the both sound just fine.

Just what’s under the hood is not yet known, but it will likely have more than the 450 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque of the current generation S7. As a result, a sub 4.6 second to 60 time is expected.

Reports have also suggested that the weight of the updated MLB Evo platform will be reduced, affecting both the A and S7 (as well as other cars in the range). Less weight should help with acceleration and cornering, though Audi might choose to add luxury offsetting the weight saved on the platform, as it did in the A8.

Whatever the recipe, though, the results look promising.
