At last!

Audi are letting details through regarding the new Q5, an A5 Coupe and the S3. We've been waiting for details for a while, and often wondered why Audi had not released another coupe (ok, but does the TT Count?) or a replacement for the S3.

press release below- we'll supply some pictures as soon as we can get our hands on them......

The Q5 is due to arrive in the UK in 2008, the A5 Coupé in 2007 and the new S3 will launch in the second half of 2006

* The new Audi Q5, to be built in Ingolstadt, will be the second Audi model in the sport utility vehicle (SUV) segment
* The much anticipated A5 Coupé opens up a new segment for Audi, launching in the first half of 2007
* The S3 three-door will be in dealers showrooms in the latter half of 2006

With the covers barely off the much anticipated Audi Q7 SUV and the iconic Audi TT Coupé, Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management has now announced three more new Audi products to further enhance the Audi Range.

The new Audi Q5 – a medium sized SUV - will be built in Germany. The all new model will commence production at Ingolstadt in 2008. Around 300 million Euros will be invested in the production facilities over the next few years.

Prof. Dr. Winterkorn explained: “We are delighted that the Audi Q5 will be built in Ingolstadt.” A total of some 1,700 workers will be involved in the production of the Audi Q5 in the principal Audi factory in Bavaria.

The Audi Q5 will join the Audi Q7 as the Audi brand's second model in the sport utility vehicle (SUV) segment. “The Audi Q5 will be an overtly sporty vehicle that will add an important product to the Audi model range. The Audi Q5 will take us a big step closer to vehicle sales of 1.4 million per year, a target that we have set ourselves for 2015.” continued Winterkorn.

On May 17 at the Annual General Meeting of Audi AG, Prof. Dr. Winterkorn announced a brace of new models including the new Audi S3, a three-door model with a sporty engine which will be hitting showrooms in the second half of 2006.

He also revealed that the much speculated Audi A5 Coupé will join the Audi model line up, which will also be built in Ingolstadt and launched in the first half of 2007.
