2008 Audi A5 and Audi S5

Audi will unveil the new 2008 Audi A5 at the Geneva Auto Show next month. The car is larger than the TT coupe and will slot in between the A4 and A6. The car will have the option of a 3.0L V6 or a 3.2L V6. There will aslo be an S5 and RS5. The A5 convertible will also eventually replace the A4 convertible. The car will also feature the company’s quattro awd system.

The 2008 S5 version is expected to get the 4.2L V8 that is used in the S4, with 340 horsepower and 302 lb ft of torque. The S5 will also have a sportier suspension, different wheels/ brakes and front and rear fascias.

I was hoping for a more striking design for this new car. It looks like they just took elements from their other cars (A4, TT and A6) and molded them into this new coupe.
