Barely has the digital ink dried on our own article about the launch of the 2011 Audi A7 Sportback, and the Ingolstadt automaker has already revealed the S Line sports accessories and appearance package for its new five-door limousine.

As you can see above, the S Line kit adds a more aggressive body kit, with a reworked front bumper, improved side skirts and a rear diffuser with chromed tailpipes. Besides that, the exterior is rounded off by a set of 19-inch S Line alloy wheels.

The interior is decked out in Aluminum trim, while a mix of leather and Alcantara decorates the seats and the three-spoke multi-function steering wheel. As par for the course, S Line badges are plentiful, both on the inside and on the outside.

Until the S7 or RS7 performance versions appear, the new Audi A7 Sportback with the S Line appearance package will definitely satisfy those wanting a bit more personality with their five-door ‘coupe’.

The 2011 Ford Mustang has certainly become extremely popular ever since it was announced that it will be packing improved engines, including a new 5.0-liter V8.

Now, in order to satisfy those who want even more power squeezed from the Blue Oval muscle car, Ford has partnered with Formula Drift’s Vaughn Gittin Jr. for a special RTR performance package for the ’11 ‘Stang.

Don’t go thinking that these are just cosmetic improvements, as besides the special 19-inch RTR wheels, wrapped in Falken FK452 performance tires, you’ll be getting an improved suspension system, that lowers the Mustang by 1.5 inches, a larger rear sway bar, as well as cross-drilled brake rotors.

The 5.0-liter V8 engine hasn’t seen big improvements, but thanks to a new K&N air filter, a Ford Racing ECU remap and a revised exhaust system, 9 more HP were added, taking the total to 421 HP.

The visual impact of the 2011 Ford Mustang RTR is augmented by a new front splitter, an aluminum spoiler plus special graphics. For the inside, RTR badges were added.

The cost for the Vaughn Gittin Jr.-approved RTR package for the 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 V8? Just $7,895. A version for the V6 ‘Stang is also in the works, but won’t appear anytime soon.
