The facelifted Q7 was unveiled back in June and these renderings from artist Aksyonov Nikita depict the facelifted SUV with all the added trimmings you would expect from an RS-badged Audi.
Starting at the front, you’re eyes are immediately drawn to the new grille that ditches the chrome surround and chrome vertical slats of the standard Q7 in favor of a black mesh design. In addition, carbon fiber fins have been added to the air intakes while there are also three small vents between the top of the grille and the hood, just like the new Audi A1.
The bold looks continue down the sides where there are new Audi Sport wheels with black and silver spokes. Completing the visual modifications are a blacked-out strip connecting the taillights, a bold diffuser and twin, oval-shaped tailpipes.
In the off-chance that Audi does decide to create such a model, it will inevitably be outfitted with the VW Group’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, with nearly 600 HP, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, just like the upcoming RS Q8. Audi can certainly extract more power than that, but the powers-that-be at Wolfsburg certainly wouldn’t want it to step on the toes of the 641 HP Lamborghini Urus.
