December 20th, 2009

After an ignominious and un-detailed early leak over the weekend, the 2011 Audi A7 was Officially unveiled just over an hour ago at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. The photos released after the Unveiling, though a bit anti-climactic, show the car off in far more detail, and we are now the official specifications Possessions or Audi’s new four-door coupe as well.

Axis for the car’s specs, as Expected A7 focuses on the efficiency as much as power and sporty driving behavior. The S7 and RS7 Will take car of the high-performance angle.

At launch, the car Will be powered by four V-6 engines, two gasoline and two diesel – in Germany, anyway. U.S. Have not yet released versions leg. The base engine is the 2.8 FSI, a 2.8-liter Naturally-aspirated V-6 rated at 204 horsepower. Next up the food chain is the gasoline 3.0 TFSI, a super-charged V-6 rated at 300 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque.
