Audi S5 Test Mule Spied One Day After A5

Less than a day after our spy photographer sources caught the upcoming B9 A5 coupe out and about, they’ve now caught the S5 version as well. How do we know? Those quad tailpipes are a very explicit bit of evidence.


Both the S5 and the A5 mules are masked in psychedelic wrap and some volumetric cladding around the nose, so they’re hiding some of the detail of the car’s fascia. Even still, we can make out proportions and details like the larger headlight shape and rear taillight signature.


Expect the B9 to shed weight over the B8. A more liberal multi-material mix comes with the next-generation MLB-evo architecture, which means a more nimble and efficient package. Even still, we expect the car will retain the supercharged 3.0 TFSI engine, but with a slig9ht power bump to 350 hp and further efficiencies gained through the decoupleable clutched supercharger already launched in the facelifted A6.
