11,103-13,605 miles I remember the first time I drove an Audi S5. It was on the international launch for the car in Verona, Italy. I was hammering along down some winding countryside roads when I stopped to shoot some photos in front of this palatial Italian estate straight out of a Shakespeare set. In the […] More…

7215-11,103 Miles An early spring drive southbound to Florida is becoming a bit of a tradition around the Fourtitude offices. The annual running of the 12 Hours of Sebring marks the perfect opportunity to drive off to a warmer climate and spend some time with other Audi enthusiasts who’ve also made the trek to witness […] More…

5892-7215 miles Winter continues for us here on the East Coast. Since making our drive to the Detroit Auto Show last month, we haven’t encountered conditions anywhere near as bad as those in Ohio and Michigan. Still, the S5’s quattro all-wheel drive and added traction of our car’s Dunlop Winter Sport 3D snow tires have […] More…

Miles: 4035-5892 We usually fly to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit every January. Actually, we normally fly from the East Coast to our corporate headquarters in Chicago then make the five-hour trek from Illinois to Motown, but it just didn’t seem to add up this time around. The hours invested are a […] More…

Miles: 3423-4035 It’s a fact. Most Americans think they can get by with all-season tires. Throw in all-wheel drive since roughly 85% of North American Audis come standard with quattro and the number of owners skipping out on seasonal rubber swaps is likely even higher than one might expect. The uneducated public may tell you […] More…

2189-3423 Miles Several months with the Audi S5 haven’t eroded the enjoyment of the ownership experience one bit. Every push of the starter button, every stroll from the supermarket to the car’s parking space back at home, every bend and every onramp remind us how truly loveable this car is. With time though, we have […] More…

Report 2 0-2189 Miles This is not the first time we’ve driven an Audi S5. We spent a number of hours at the wheel of an early-build example in Italy and a week at the wheel of a U.S. specimen last year to better get a feel for Audi’s sultry two-door. However, spending weeks on […] More…

September 2008 Mileage: 0 When Walter da Silva introduced the Audi S5 at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, the illustrious Audi design chief – now head of design for the entire Volkswagen Group, literally wept. “It is the most beautiful car I have ever created,” said the Italian. When you consider the man’s resume, with […] More…

June 2008 Mileage: 17,361-20,030 Avg Observed Economy: 15.59 mpg We never thought we’d do it, going to a Leo di Caprio flick for logic, but we just can’t resist when mentioning our now-gone long-term Audi S6. While notes in the drive book were consistently glowing, you’ll get no cheesy, gag-inducing “king of the world,” declaration […] More…

May, 2008 14,891 to 17,361 miles Let’s face it. There are sexier cars in the Audi fleet to be sure, though few are more masculine than the S6. You can get lost in the lines of an Audi S5 coupe or indulge in the lightweight tossability and economy of the Audi TT, but no car […] More…

April, 2008 13,260 to 14891 miles Our black S6 doesn’t beg for attention but those LEDs continue to attract glances. Thumbs up and nods of appreciation are commonplace, and we’ve even been stopped on the street and hammered with questions by the owner of an older S6. Drunk on popularity, we decided to turn it […] More…

March, 2008 11,890 to 13,260 miles The S6 begs to be driven hard, but we’ve recently become annoyed by its aggressive gas-pedal modulation. The throttle is entirely drive-by-wire, and we expect quick tip-in whenever we select the transmission’s “S” sport mode. But even in the standard “drive” position the car jumps like a frightened alley […] More…
