Spied! Next Audi RS 7 Tests in Icy Conditions

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 19:00

Our spy photographers have caught the upcoming Audi RS 7 testing in the snow and flaunting its shapely silhouette. The high-performance variant of Audi’s swoopy fastback sedan is scheduled to debut sometime next year and will eventually do battle with the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, Porsche Panamera, and BMW M5.

Some of the dead giveaways that this is the RS 7 are the large oval exhaust tips, which distinguish Audi’s RS models from lesser variants. Behind all of the camouflage, the fenders look wider than on the standard A7. This particular prototype also appears to have a different lower front fascia with larger side openings for improved air flow to cool the brakes. It’s also sporting sizable front brakes and larger-diameter alloy wheels. The car also appears lower than a standard A7, which could hint at a height-adjustable air suspension or possibly a lowered fixed setup.

As with past Audi RS models, it’s the small details that will set this car apart from its more pedestrian sibling, which should help the RS 7 to be one heck of a sleeper. Our spy photographers tell us that the RS 7 will debut with a new twin-turbo V-8 good for 650 hp. That powertrain is likely to be shared with the eight-cylinder version of the Bentley Continental GT. Look for the 2020 Audi RS 7 to debut next year, possibly at the Geneva motor show.

1,900-HP Pininfarina Battista Teased Ahead of Geneva Debut

Motortrend News Feed - Tue, 12/11/2018 - 17:57

Famed Italian design house Pininfarina announced earlier this year that it would relaunch as an electric car brand, and now we know the name of the fledgling automaker’s first model. At the Geneva motor show next March, Pininfarina will debut the Battista, an electric hypercar named after the marque’s founder, Battista “Pinin” Farina.

The new automaker is coming out swinging with its first production EV, claiming it will be both the most powerful and fastest Italian car when it launches in late 2020. If it has the specs Pininfarina promises, it just might be. The Battista will produce 1,900 hp and 1,696 lb-ft of torque from its Rimac-supplied all-electric powertrain, according to Pininfarina. With that kind of power on tap, the Battista is estimated to hit 62 mph in less than 2 seconds and top 250 mph. Pininfarina also promises a range of more than 300 miles. Those figures may be hard to believe, but as you might recall, the Rimac C_Two from this year’s Geneva show boasted similar specs.

Based on the teaser images, you can expect a sleek, low-slung exterior design. We see a bit of the Pininfarina-penned Ferrari Sergio concept in the front end, though the headlights could be closer to those of a Ferrari 488. However it ends up looking, the Battista will be rare. The brand promises to build no more than 150 examples, and each will be priced between $2 million and $2.5 million. The distribution will be split three ways, with the U.S., Europe, and Middle East each getting 50 cars.

We’ll find out more about the Pininfarina Battista at the 2019 Geneva motor show.
