Audi A5 Set for 2008 Launch

Though unconfirmed by Audi, the new A5 is reportedly set for a 2008 release and — notwithstanding the spec image (pictured) — will share styling cues with the Nuvolari and Shooting Brake concepts and a platform with the next-generation A4 and Volkswagen's forthcoming upscale coupe (or four-door coupe as the case may be). According to South Africa's Wheels24, a soft-top A5 will replace the A4 cabrio.
