Long term report: Audi S7 #4

Great to drive even with the boss alongside...

The first time I finally got to drive the S7 my excitement was tempered slightly by the fact that my boss was in the car with me.
It was a bit like going on a date with a page three girl and having her dad come along as a chaperone. I was driving with the hand brake on, metaphorically speaking.

Still, the sleek S7 is a beautiful machine that combines style and quality to great effect.

The sweeping design looks stunning and it's no surprise there's been a queue to get a drive.

The quality of the interior matches the outside and Audi aren't wrong when they talk about 'immersing yourself in total comfort'.

It's got all the things you would expect, plus a couple of things I really like. The 'phone box', that charges your phone and lets you use it is a nice touch and I now need a head-up display in my life.

But this classy coupe is not all about the looks and the S7 can certainly perform.

With plenty of room inside and a big boot, the S7 really does combine luxurious practicality with exciting performance.
