Audi A5

Sorry if this thread seems a bit sparse on info, but I was completely taken aback when I heard there will be an A5, and thought I should share.

A few random pictures via our friend google, test mules, and as ever, the artists impressions we so heavily rely on!!!

The Silver Coupe rendition looks very much like the Nuvolari concept. A very good thing.

So we've not only got the R8, the S3, and the A5 to look forward to, but now the A1 as well!!

Right here we have the Audi A1 (in blue)

Or...what it might/could/probably will look like

Expected in 2010 though, so long wait . Will have a VW twin-turbo charged engine, 3 doors and with a diesel

Its competition: THE MINI (hence the merge of mini and audi in the 2nd pic)

Audi will also do an S1 version to compete with the Cooper S. The S1 would get 240-hp, 2.0-liter turbo,

Both pics are scans by the way

As far as I know it isn't confired yet. In any case it would sat in a convetional Polo platform and wouldn't have the high-tech aluminium spaceframe the A2 has.

Ye definatly not confirmed yet but certainly on the drawing board, I have heard that Audis' "HIGH" people are all in conflict on over it would or would not be a success. But personally, I think it would be good to see a bit of competition for the Mini, shame though, that if it gets the green light, wont see it until 2009/10

Maybe the next small Lancia hatchback will give us a surprise...

I like the idea of this more than the A2, I suppose probably because this is more sporty. It would def give the mini a run for its money.

Well they were talking about bringing in the standard A1 at £13,995 basic OTR, that compared to a basic Mini (One(D)) seems like a lot. Plus there are a lot of different Minis out now, what with the John Cooper Works tuning and the GP, plus the park lane, seven and chequered flag, models bla bla etc etc. They would need to have a real think about it before going ahead, people are liking the Minis a lot, with the 300-odd possible combinations with colour exterior/interior and choice of wheels.

I do like Minis, but for me they are too common as the 'nice small hatch' car. This Audi would provide a bit of variety.
