ABOUT:The Audi A5 is a coupe produced by the German automobile manufacturer Audi since 2007. It is the coupe, cabriolet, and five-door fastback versions of the fourth generation (B8) Audi A4 saloon and estate models.
The A5 marks Audi's return to the compact executive coupe market since the (B3/B4) Audi 80-based coupe model ended production in 1996. The B6/B7 A4 spawned a convertible variant but not a coupe. For the fourth generation A4 (B8), Audi decided to spin off the cabriolet, along with a new coupe and five-door hatchback, into a nameplate of its own as the A5.
The new A5 and B8 A4 were based on the Audi MLP platform (Modular Longitudinal Platform) which is planned to underpin the next generation A6 and A8.
The A5 is the third coupe in Audi's line-up, next to the second-generation TT and the R8. The A5 has adopted many design elements of the Nuvolari quattro concept. The A5 debuted with the 3.2-litre FSI V6 engine delivering 195 kW (265 PS; 261 hp).
The updated vehicles, covering A5 Coupe, Convertible, Sportback and S models, includes updated front and rear lights, as well as a new front bumper design. The new front end includes pronounced air inlets, revamped grilles and flat fog lights. The overall vehicle is 10 mm longer than predecessor. Sportback model includes 5-seat option.
The updated vehicles were unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Sales began in Europe in 2011 as 2012 model year vehicles. Early models include A5 1.8 TFSI, A5 2.0 TFSI, A5 3.0 TFSI, S5 3.0 TFSI, 2.0 TDI. The base model Audi A5 Sportback 1.8 TFSI was sold for €33,350.
Codenamed R17, the Audi A5 DTM is a race car designed for the DTM beginning in year 2012, replacing the Audi A4 DTM. It includes a V8 engine rated at 340 kW (462 PS; 456 hp) with 6-speed transmission (from previous A4 DTM car), pneumatically operated using paddle shifters in the steering wheel, engine electronics (Bosch MS 5.1) and the central display from Audi R8 LMS, larger and wider tires from Hankook, 120-litre safety fuel tank inside carbon fiber cell, and a larger rear wing. The prototype was built by Audi Sport in Ingolstadt.
The vehicle was unveiled at the 2011 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt. The homologation of the A5 DTM was scheduled for March 1, 2012.
