Spied: 2012 Audi S7 interior

05/19/2010, 5:41 PM BY DREW JOHNSON

Just yesterday we brought you the first images of Audi’s upcoming S7 sedan, and today we have the first images of the high-performance four-door’s interior. The performance-minded S7 sedan should arrive in Audi dealers in late 2011 or early 2012.

Spotted testing at Germany’s famed Nürburgring, the S7 is clearly being design as an answer to Mercedes-Benz’ CLS 63 AMG model. It remains unknown which of Audi’s powerplants is lurking underhood, but most reports suggest a V8.

Output also remains unknown, but given the range-topping RS7 is expected to feature a 580 horsepower V10, something in the 450 range sounds reasonable.

Inside, the S7’s dash is completely different than the A8’s, with more of a sporty, cockpit feel. Despite the leather boot on the shift knob, this S7 has Audi’s seven-speed automatic transmission, but the paddle shifters on the steering wheel should still deliver plenty of driver control.

The standard-issue A7 should hit the market later this year, but Audi will likely delay the launch of the S7 model by about 12 months. Given that timeframe, expect the S7 to debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
