2008 Audi A5 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Rarely does one get to step back from the practicality and market demands of the automotive to create something purely out of passion and desire. It is a realm typically reserved for artists. And a method that has resulted in another milestone in our celebrated history: the all-new Audi A5.

The experience begins wîth a powerful V6 that boldly produces 265 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque. Meticulous weight-distribution allows the aggressive design to take full advantage of the dynamic engine characteristics.

To keep this unbridled power under complete control, we offer the predictable yet exhilarating handling dynamics wîth a new five-link suspension and trapezoidal-link rear suspension. This unique design, coupled wîth optimized weight distribution, provides sporty handling and outstanding agility. A long 108.3in wheelbase provides a remarkably comfortable ride making those long road trips more enjoyable.

At the center of the Audi A5 is the initial 6-speed manual transmission to take advantage of the car's sporty handling and aggressive driving dynamics.

Dreams become lofty concepts. Lofty concepts turn into detailed sketches. Detailed sketches become exquisite models. Exquisite models become pure automotive sculptures. All proving that if we can dream it, we can build it. The result is a car where form blends harmoniously wîth function. When that function is raw power and clairvoyant handling, it is only natural the form be equally as titillating.
Exterior Design
The flowing lines and aggressive stance stir the emotions and summons your passion for remarkable automotive design. Then it happens. You fall in love at first glance. Úpon closer inspection, you begin to witness years of innovative design deceptively hidden behind a sleek, single frame grill, nestled behind the jeweled LED-styled lights and residing in every gleam of light emanating from the 18' aluminum wheels.

Interior Design
A quick glance behind the sleek exterior curtain will open you to a world of Audi innovation and progressive interior design. 2+2 Coupe seating embraces driver and passenger while aluminum optic air vents supply 3-zone air conditioning to coddle the senses. An available MMI interface provides the driver wîth one-finger access to a symphony powered by a Bang & Olfusen sound system, a smarter navigation system and even the nearest 4-star hotel.

Since 2001, Audi has dominated wîth FSI® technology at Le Mans. This paid off wîth an unbroken string of victories until an Audi TDI engine picked up the baton in 2006. With FSI®, the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber, which in turn boosts combustion efficiency and engine performance.
Audi MMI®
Simple. Elegant. Intuitive. These words perfectly describe the innovative Audi Multi-Media Interface system. The simple terminal distills advanced technology into a natural easy-to-use interface. MMI connects you wîth every advanced system of the Audi A5, making a remarkable vehicle an intuitive extension of yourself.
Advanced rear parking system
Úsing ultrasonic sensors to measure distance, Parktronic emits an intermittent warning tone to indicate how far the car is from an obstacle. A rear view camera displays in your A5's MMI screen for even more sophistication and easier parking.
Bang & Olufsen® Sound System
14-speaker sound system wîth 505 digitally amplified watts. Microphone-based noise compensation ensures optimum sound under varying road conditions and speeds.
