Guns A-Blazing: Assault of the Audis

Assault of the Audis

A7 coupe-like four-door due in ’08, next-gen A8 in ’09

Audi’s product expansion continues unabated, with a so-called four-door A7 coupe in the wings, followed by the next-generation A8.

The A6-based A7, as shown in this computer-enhanced shot, will give Volkswagen’s luxury marque a competitor for the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS. Dramatic styling touches include a chopped roofline, an aggressive nose design with a radical headlight treatment, and the rear door handles hidden within the C-pillar supports. Sources say the A7 should arrive sometime in 2008.

On the heels of the A7 comes the next-gen Audi flagship—this one deriving power from a V12 diesel and a new V10 gasoline engine. Early prototypes indicate the car is about four inches longer than today’s A8, reaching an overall length of 200 inches. Audi is busy developing the 2010 A8 in preparation for a planned launch in late 2009.

Performance aside the generic look of all the

new AUDIs makes them blend into traffic, I

look at the gapping grille, roll my eyes &

that's as far as my interest goes.

They're still somewhat problematic electrically.

This actually has styling that does not bland in

but it's just a computer enhanced photo...

Hidden rear doorhandles were "new" in 1992

on the Nissan Pathfinder and GM had them in

the B-pillar for years before that... suicide

doors would be much cooler.
