Audi has revealed its 2008 S5 coupe, which will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show alongside the new A5 coupe. Although final specs have not yet been disclosed, the S5 is widely expected to get the same 4.2-liter V8 as the S4, delivering 340 horsepower and 302 pound feet of torque.

Like all Audi "S" models, the S5 has sportier suspension, unique front and rear fascias, performance wheels and brakes, carbon fiber interior elements, and the choice of a six-speed manual or DSG gearbox.

Looks really nice, esp the interior as usual for Audi. I think the rear looks like a 3-series coupe.

I like audi's but don't think i'll ever buy one because of their reliability and hefty weight.

Eh? I thought the S4 and RS4 were Tiptronic, not DSG, since DSG requires a longitudinally mounted engine?

I stand to be corrected.

Eh, those above pics use angles to make it cooler looking than it actually is, when you look at it from a normal side profile, it just looks funny



Basically looks too much like the front end of a sedan with a rear end of a coupe, frankly i like the S4 sedan look much better.

These press photos really play up what is really boring styling. How do you go from the stunning R8 to another melted bar of soap? I also am not a fan of audi's interior design. Stark, black, boring...
