Audi S7 Sportback

Audi’s A7 gives owners an opportunity to enjoy a car with the sporty elegance of a coupe, the comfort of a sedan and the practicality of a station wagon. Audi have decided to add a fourth statement to that line; has the power of a sports car. 

The fourth statement is possible thanks to the introduction of the Audi S7 Sportsback. Stand it next to a normal A7 and you will easily sport the difference between the two.
