If you're looking for a sports commuter that can also get you up the mountain for some skiing and boarding, here's a consideration. Brenda Priddy's spy photo crew caught this 2011 Audi A7 powersliding out on a frozen lake with a new feature as yet unspotted: an automatic spoiler.
Riding on a version of the next-generation A6 platform, the A7 will go into production in the second half of this year. Priddy says the United States can expect to see a 300hp supercharged V6 version in addition to a 4.2L V8. While the Mercedes CLS will be the A7's main opposition, BMW's 5 Series GT may also be on the target list.
