It just goes to show, a secret is only a secret until you tell someone. We're guessing some embargo photos went out to some outlet or another who managed to let these shots of the A7 slip out into the public domain about two days ahead of schedule. Why? The shots are legitimate from what we can tell and look like PR shots, while the selection is still just a few pics that would hint at a small pre-reveal embargo collection. We've found the shots at CarScoop.com and you can see all of them (like the one linked above) over there.

We fly out for Munich tomorrow and will be covering the Monday reveal in person and as such we'll hold off until the actual reveal to host any photos of the A7 here on this website. Still, we knew our readers would like to ogle the car just as soon as is/was possible and thus the link.

Check out more after the jump and thanks Hans Z. for the tip.

Hmmm.... not sure what to make of the front end, which has changed the most from the concept and lost a bit of its sexiness. The headlights look almost borrowed from the A8, while the unadventurous lower intakes look a bit blocky on such a curvy car.

The interior looks very nice though, almost identical to the concept car.

Would like to see the rear now.

Agreed. The front is nice but probably not as expected! The sportback concept had much better ones! Hopefully better images will improve it! Not sure about the choice of the wheels! Never liked this option on other models as well... :confused:
Having said this, A8 was disappointing at the beginning but now I worship it!

Compared to A5 sportback it's pretty similar but slightly less fluid lines and looks lot longer therefore. Especially on the side but that's probably to make it look slightly more aggressive incl. tail and headlights. Still $60K or so instead of $40K for an A5 sportback then I rather wish they'd export that one:
