Audi engineers last week were pulling a dead weight trailer in the thin air and steep climbs of the Austrian Alps with a prototype of the redesigned A7 sedan when a fire started under the hood. Spy photographers captured the scene. The car was engulfed in flames and destroyed within 15 or 20 minutes, witnesses said. The A7, based on the new MLB Evo platform, debuts this fall in Europe and is to arrive in mid-2018 for the 2019 model year in the U.S.
