The Audi RS7 Concept is a design study of a sportscar that adopts and combines several styling cues from the Audi Group models, from the R8-inspired rear end to the Lamborghini-trademark scissor doors. The author is Austrian Adriano Mudri.
The Audi RS7 is a design study created by Austrian designer Adriano Mudri. The side view is inspired by the design of the R8 and like the Audi supercar it has a rear section - where the powerplant is located - in a contrasting color.
This RS7 rendering sees the car with a rear-mounted engine, with design elements much like the current (real) Audi R8, including the contrast in color between the engine bonnet and the rest of the body.
But here the contrast becomes more defined, with a stark black covering the rear engine bay and extending to the rear of the body, covering the rear wheel wells too.
The horizontal design lines resonate Lamborghini, just like the R8 does, but also provide a larger curve over the front wheel wells adding a more organic touch to the RS7.
The front face comes with a very distinctive double-gaping mouth, with minimalist LED headlamps and two small, round lights at the center.
The scissor/gullwing doors are another special feature, borrowed from some Lambo models as well.
Some details of the powertrain emerge on the engine hood surface so that the different powertrain configurations are visible on the outside. The exterior design has also some reminescences of various VW/Audi Group cars: the front end and the descending character line on the side remind of the latest Seat sporty models, while the scissor doors are a trademark of Lamborghini sportscars.
