Audi has officially launched the new 2015 A7. See the link below for information and in-depth videos on both the A7 and S7. Furthermore, the 2015 A7 will have LEDs and the HUD (no NV required) included in the Prestige Pkg.
Glad to see that my 2012 still looks as good as new. I actually prefer the 2012 Prestige front bumper and front LED curves over the 2015. I do like to new tail LEDs and the new exhaust.
I like the old style better too, it looks more agressive IMO, the new grill is diamond shaped like the A6, the headlights look A6ish too, the LED with the clusters looks better than the flush line and the bottom spoiler looks better without the center part.
The new tailights go with the LED shaped, which looks cool, but the shape is exactly the same.
The exhaust mmmmmm I dont like either, that is why I changed mine, but the rectangular shape is not sporty either.

As soon as Audi says that they are available in the A6. All the A6/A7 engines produce more horse power than what is advertised now.
That extra 20 hp will likely only be a slight change in tune. Or simply a change in marketing - as you wrote, the 3.0T engine output is underrated now.

I always thought they should have launched the 2010 concept as was !, interesting comparing the front lights and grill of the 2010 concept to the 2015 model. I prefer the more integrated look of the exhaust tips on the 2010 concept.

If europe is getting this update this summer, wouldn't usa as well. There is one assembly line right? I guess the engines / transmission might differ for usa.
The full press release is on aw homepage.
I'm pretty sure USA will get the new model next year as MY2016.
The MY2015's order guide is already out and people are making orders, with expected delivery dates coming up in June/July/etc.
Audi is not going to change this mid-year, so they are going to wait for the next model year cycle to start, which is going to be early next year.
Also, I believe Europe usually gets the newer models before USA.
Thanks for the answers.. I am even more confused now, it looks like the US will get a 1015 and Europe a 1015 1/2 model during the year of 2014. It doesn't make sense to call a 2015 model in Europe a 2015 and the same car in US a 2016 model. People who ordered a A7 recently will get a 2015 model but not the same car that will soon be available in Europe, correct ?
