Next Audi A8 and A7 snapped on SA shores


Spied until now with camouflage obscuring most surfaces, a Dutch website has published clear rear-end light shots of new Audi A8 and A7 Sportback undergoing testing in South Africa for the first time.

Pictured by in what appears to be a parking area with provisional Northern Cape registration plates, the new D5 A8 adopts a continues wraparound design with a light bar in between similar to that of the Prologue Concept, while the A7 features a somewhat slanted array underneath a redesigned prominent boot spoiler.

Both models are expected to be underpinned by Volkswagen's new lightweight MLB Evo platform, with a range of revised petrol and turbodiesel engines as well as a rumoured plug-in hybrid. The A8 will make its debut in Barcelona on June 11th with the A7 expected to premiere towards the end of this year.
