Fourtitude has nabbed some spy shots of the upcoming Audi A5 wearing original skin for the first time, and clearly its design will be the spitting image of the Nuvolari concept that appeared at the 2003 Detroit auto show. The A5 also looks like it will be a longer, more accommodating coupe than the TT, which can be cramped for those who are gifted in physical stature.

Fourtitude also goes into great detail about the A5's new platform, codenamed the B8. This all-new architecture will first debut in the A5, but soon after will appear in the next generation A4 sedan, an A5 convertible and the Q5 soft-roader. VW/Audi is an industry leader in parts sharing, and the scalable B8 will also likely lend components to the A6, A8 and rumored A7 four-door coupe. Follow the link to see how Fourtitude breaks down the B8 and catch a glimpse of a nice A5 rendering, as well.
