Less than a day before the Audi A5 Sportback is officially unveiled there pictures have been leaked. The car has been spied, leaked and shot a number of times before but these pictures show it in complete nudity.

The Audi A5 Sportback has pretty much been uncovered in various guises; in teasers, spy shots and videos. So these leaked images which are supposedly of the real thing add very little to the overall A5 Sportback experience. Nevertheless it is always good be able to put them out there for commentary before they are officially released.

Details about the car are also abundant having been published a number of times on WCF and the interweb. In case you missed them here is a bit of a breakdown. The A5 Sportback shares its DNA with the A5 Coupe but as you can see, it is larger with two more doors and a longer wheelbase. Being a hatchback/wagon it features a luggage compartment of 480 litres with the seats up and 980 litres with the seats folded down. Yet it is sportier than the A4, with a lower suspension system and a rear diffuser showing its performance ambitions.

Engines found are the 2.0 TDI with 125kW (170hp) and 350Nm of torque, the 2.7TDI of 140 kW (190hp) and 400Nm, the 3.0TDI with 500Nm, and petrols which include the 155kW (210hp) 2.0TFSI and the 3.2-litre V6.

Audi is expected to unveil the A5 Sportback tomorrow July 16 during a ceremony that celebrates 100 years of Audi. German pricing will start at €36,050.
