The Audi A7 Sportback is my favourite car built by the Volkswagen Group company: Audi.
It was first introduced at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, although it will be released in June 2011 in the USA and Europe in October 2010 and Australia also in 2011.
4dr Hatchback AWD (3.0L 6cyl 7A)
Turbocharged V6 diesel
Cubic Capacity (cc):
221 @ 4,000-4,400
Seven-speed automated manual
It has half a cubic metre (17.7 cu-ft) of storage space (1.5 m³ [56 cu-ft] with seats folded).
Once the 2011 Audi A7 Sportback goes into production it won't get gas engines, as the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and 4.2-liter FSI V8 will be the first engines to be offered for the Q7. Meanwhile, the big carbon-ceramic brake discs on this prototype are showcar excess, but we love the stopping power they afford on this nearly 4,000-pound car.

It is currently priced at 42 925 GBP (51 402 EUR) (67 040 USD).
The official debut will be made in September at the Paris Auto Show. On sale in the spring of 2011, the A7 will compete with models like the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the Porsche Panamera, and the Aston Martin Rapide.

Optional are LED headlights with rear LED lights standard
It is a beautiful car that is a worthy competitor against other cars by Audi.
