This is what I mean about how pics can deceive you. I admit the A7 has a really nice front end and even the rear end looks good BUT the roofline is pathetic. These camera angles mostly hide it apart from a 1 or 2 pics.

It's a shame because this car had a lot of potential but the roofline really is that bad. When you see it on the road it looks like a dog taking a dump.

Still looks like a platypus. Wheels are the only thing I like.

I agree that the wheels are the only attractive part of that car. I can admit that when I saw concept art fot the A7 I was impessed, but after seeing one in person at the toll booth, I didn't like what I saw. Just my two cents....

... or maybe it was because the driver was a real D-bag... he fought so hard to get in front of me! Maybe because my car kinda stands out he felt the need to show me that his car is an attention grabber as well. So, in traffic that is moving at 5MPH, he gassed hard and breaked hard to go from behind me, to my right, then in front of me while I watch him in my mirrors, lol.

If you think that you will make up for lost time in rush hour traffic by switching lanes every two minutes... you are fooling yourself... IMHO

Maybe thats why I'm not feeling that car... but the wheels are nice... lol

Wow, the wheels actually make the A7 look good. I don't like the back of the A7, it's like Audi tried to copy the MB CLS.

^ CLS is better though. I'd rather have CLS or 6GC over this.

i like the car, i like the wheels. I also like the cls better. But the CLS also cost about 15k more. and at 82k, i rather have other cars over the CLS. oh damn, here we go again. 75k-100k and still just an average car, nothing super special. i feel like we are in Bangladesh or Brazil - inflation and crazy pricing can only be afforded by the goonds.

Haha yeah there's an A7 I see on the Ike on the way to work every morning and he does that. Zigging and zagging across lanes for miles only to end up in the same position as when he started. The thing is, he must have no idea that he makes no progress because he continues to do it despite the fact that he never gains any significant amount of time.

I agree that the roofline in back needs some work, but I think it would be OK if Audi would have managed the transition between the roof and back end. The spoiler helps a little but it would look even better if it had a more substantial winglet area at the ends. Just MHO though. The rest of the car looks so damn good except for that giant eyesore.

The wheels look really nice though. They fit the car well.

^lol that zig zag thing is true but there are actually certain parts where it does makes sense to change lanes for a while! but yeah the fast lane isn't always going to get you there faster.

I was at AWE Performance yesterday and i saw A7 sitting on a lift. They are developing a sport exhaust for it. Apparently there is a market for it. Hideous little thing but curious looking at the same time. Kinda like a train wreck.

Right behind the A8. Both faces only a mother could love.

I agree the rear is ugly but the A7 has a nice lookin front end. I saw the new CLS,all i remember seein was an oversized M-B emblem and a bunch of LED strips on a behemoth. The CLS must be one the ugliest benz's in yheir lineup.

This car really had a lot of potential but the hips on her ruins the look.


That being said, like the Panamera, this car looks better in person but from certain angles it doesn't look so good in photographs.

I saw a black A7 in person on the road today and damn it looked stunning. It looks weird in photos I think for some reason but in person I'll be honest, it looked very good

I agree, at first i didn't like the look but it grows on you. I went to the dealership to go look at it and its quite a stunner. I would say it looks better than the new a6 and a8 easily. That "hunchback" that everyone talks about makes the car so much more comfortable for the rear passengers. Those wheels look awesome too!

Just got from a car show that had a lineup of Audis. The A7's face looked like an ugly duckling compared to the A6 they had next to it. Looks like an old woman that got a facelift and stretched everythign too far out.

The CLS is aesthetic as fuark. I've yet to see someone diss it after seeing it in the metal. Even I called it a pile of shit when I first saw it in press photos.
