Audi A5/Audi S5 (8T/AU484/AU485). 2007–16 (prod. n/a). 2-door coupé, 2-door convertible, 5-door saloon. F/F, F/A, 1798, 1984 cm³ petrol, 1968 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC), 2698, 2967 cm³ diesel, 2995, 3123 cm³ petrol (V6 DOHC), 4163 cm³ (V8 DOHC). New platform for Audi; S5 equipped with V8. Styling inspired by Nuvolari concept. Meant to rival BMW 3-series but actually more raw; better thought of as a four-seater sports car than an adaptation of a saloon. Spiritual successor to Audi B3 Coupé. Convertible from 2008, Sportback five-door from 2009. Revisions for 2011, with better fuel economy across range: 1·8 added at base, and S5’s V8 changed for a turbo V6.

Manufacturing location: Ingolstadt, Bayern, Germany
