The Audi A7 Sportback has been with us for a few months now and it's a firm favourite with the Motoring team at The National. Here is one of the first spy shots of an undisguised S7, which should be unveiled at this year's Frankfurt motor show. Rumour has it that an RS7 Sportback might debut alongside it, complete with a 580hp V10 engine. As for the car spied here, there are larger air intakes at the front, a larger wheel and tyre package, bigger brakes and quad exhaust pipes. The S7's engine is said to be a 4.0L V8, which will also be fitted to an entry-level Bentley Continental GT in the future. Audi will be trying to stay in the limelight in 2011 with a number of high-performance models (the S6 and S8 models are rumoured to debut at Frankfurt, too) because BMW's awesome new M5 is almost here. We can't wait.
