Audi A7 Sportback Available Next Week

Wondering when the Audi A7 Sportback will be available in the US?  On July 26th, 2010, which is next week, you should be able to walk into any Audi dealership and get your own.  Just recently the auto maker sold it’s 2 millionth car in the US, a huge milestone.

The A7 is being built to compete with cars like the Mercedes CLS, specifically a luxury car with 5 doors.  The profile of the A7 almost resembles the Porsche Panamera and will most likely also appeal to the same buyers in that market.  It’s long lines and AUDI refinement make it a good buy.

Power wise the A7 Sportback will be able to compete with other high power luxury cars.  Reportedly the Sportback will get pushed down the road thanks to a 3.0 liter supercharged V6.  Like the popular AUDI A6, buyers will be able to choose between a diesel of gasoline variant on the motor.

According to Audi the new 2011 R8 is capable of a 0-60 time of just 3.6 seconds.  Break neck acceleration and a top speed just shy of 200 mph makes this a toy worthy of any millionaires garage.  Pricing starts at just $256,000.

Audi A8 Hybrid Reveal

The Geneva Motor Show has seen it’s fair share of hybrids, but Audi has made a splash with it’s reveal of the A8 Hybrid.  In standard trim the A8 is already an impressive vehicle, with big power numbers, and luxury to spare.  The new hybrid should appeal to those looking to stay green and powerful.

Combined, the 2.0 liter motor and electric motor provide over 240 horsepower.  Impressive numbers, especially when you consider that the A8 will be available in v6 versions with similar horsepower and no hybrid power train.

Don’t go rushing to your Audi dealers just yet, the Audi A8 should not be available until sometime in 2011.  By then I’m sure we will see plenty other luxury hybrids on the market, including those from Porsche and even Ferrari.  Depending on how deep your pockets are, the sky is the limit on horsepower and luxury in a green wrapper.
