Audi has officialy launched its new S5 Sportback at the Frankfurt motor show today.
The hot Audi S5 Sportback will enter production in Spring 2010, the company has confirmed.
Using the same 328bhp supercharged V6 as the S4 saloon, the S5 Sportback also gets quattro permanent four-wheel drive and a seven-speed twin-clutch S-tronic gearbox as standard.
Audi’s Sport differential, which actively distributes drive between the car's rear wheels, will be offered as an option.
Audi says the S5 Sportback should crack 62mph in 5.4sec, and go on to a governed 155mph maximum speed. It will be shown at next month’s Frankfurt motor show, enter production in spring 2010 and come to the UK next summer.
The S5 Sportback will share Audi’s Frankfurt motor show stand with two other production car debutants: a Euro6-compliant ‘clean diesel’ version of the A4 saloon, and a 103bhp 1.2-litre TFSI version of the A3 capable of 51.3mpg.
