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.
