Audi S7 Debut at the Paris Motor Show

Word around town is that the Audi S7 will make its debut the following weeks at the Paris Motor Show.

Though the Audi representatives won't fully confirm this and won't give any details as to what we are to expect of the new model, it is suspected that the new engine will be a direct-injected 4.0-liter turbo, due to the fact that its sister brand, Bentley, has confirmed that the 2011 Continental GT will be available with a V8 engine for the first time. We could also expect a six-speed manual gearbox, since Audi is likely to save the more sports-oriented gearbox for the higher-performance S7, such as in the case of the North American S7. On European markets, the model range is available with a seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch cog swapper, though it funnels its 296 horsepower exclusively through a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic.

There is no confirmation as to whether the new S7 will be available in showrooms, but since itís designated for 2012, we may not expect it to be available until late spring.
