Having made its public debut at the beginning of the month in Paris, the sharp-looking A5/S5 Coupe and Sportback duo has already arrived at Audi U.K.

The order books have opened today and the cheapest model money can buy is the A5 Coupe in the entry-level SE trim with a 190-hp 2.0 TFSI engine hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission for £30,700 OTR. Should you want the practicality of the A5 Sportback, it kicks off at £38,005 in the Sport trim with a 190-hp 2.0 TDI quattro setup and a seven-speed S tronic gearbox. The reason why there’s a big difference between the two has to do with the fact that pricing for the base A5 Sportback SE will be announced at a later date, so for now you’ll have to pay the premium that comes with the Sport trim.

Should you decide to go all out and opt for the S5, it’s going to set you back £47,000 in both Coupe and Sportback flavors. These two share a new turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine with 354 horsepower (260 kilowatts) and a beefy 368.8 pound-feet (500 Newton-meters) of torque. It’s enough Ingolstadt punch to enable a sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in 4.7 seconds onto a top speed electronically-capped at 155 mph (250 kph), regardless of body style.

If you don’t feel like spending so much money, even the base SE model comes generously equipped with xenon headlights (with LED daytime running lights), 17-inch wheels, three-zone climate control, and the Audi Drive Select system. The A5 Coupe will have a standard electric trunk lid release mechanism, whereas the A5 Sportback will benefit from a power-operated tailgate.

Upgrading to the Sport model (from £32,600 Coupe / £38,005 Sportback) will bring an LED interior lighting pack, MMI navigation, and electrically-adjustable leather-wrapped sports seats boasting four-way lumbar support.

Buyers can also opt for the S Line specification (from £34,250 Coupe / £41,240 Sportback) featuring LED headlights and taillights, 18-inch alloys, and front sport seats covered in a combination of leather and Alcantara.

Needless to say, the A5/S5 range will be topped by a new RS5 Coupe expected to arrive in the second half of next year with a biturbo 2.9-liter V6 engine borrowed from the Porsche Panamera 4S. There have been some rumors about a first-ever RS5 Sportback, but we’ll have to patiently wait for Audi to confirm or deny the gossip.
