The upcoming Audi A5 coupe's been out on the N rburgring, rain or shine, in shakedown testing ahead of its launch, which some say will be at the Frankfurt show late in 2007. Spies videoed the latest in Audi's adventures in brand extension, which spies say appears to be larger than the BMW 3-series two-door, potentially filling a niche between the 3- and 6-Series coupes (anyone order that?). Word is a convertible version for ze vives who lunch is also in the works, though no word on the likelihood of a highly precise AS5 in our future.
