Our unrivaled network of spy photographers snap the first images of the stunning new A5 Cabriolet

We've lifted the lid on the hot new Audi A5 Cabriolet with these exclusive first pictures of the car undergoing testing in the hills of Switzerland.

There have been numerous computer-illustrations of what the A5 will look like but these first-glimpse exclusive pictures show the car completely undisguised and lay any theories to rest as to the soft-tops design. As expected the car is almost identical to the coupe and the choice of a canvas roof over the retractable hard-top is no surprise either.

Under the bonnet we expect the same engine line-up as for the coupe with a base 1.8-litre 170bhp four-cylinder petrol engine, followed by a 3.2-litre V6 producing 265bhp. Diesel-lovers can choose between a 2.7-litre with 190bhp and a 3.0-litre V6 TDI with 240bhp.

The car will make its first public appearance at the Paris motor show later this year.
