Almost everything we know about this model is vague. Some say it will be launched in 2007, others in 2008. But we know for sure that it will be based on the new A4. The new coupe will be named A5 and will have all the tehnology the third generation A4 has.
It will have to face a fierce competition, the 3 series BMW and the Mercedes CLK. In the same time, Audi works also at the soft-top verion, that will be launched in 2008, togheter with the next A4.
The A5 will borrow design cues from the Nuvolari concept, which was unveiled at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show Both cars are expected to use Audi’s 3.2-liter FSI V-6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. A range-topping RS5 could get the 420-horsepower 4.2-liter V-8. Also, the Audi A5 will be available with FWD or 4WD
