A Wheels24 reader has spied the Audi A5 coupe, which is only due to be unveiled in March, north of Upington in the Northern Cape.

Hot on the heels of our article about Audi's upcoming A5 on Friday, two A5s were snapped by reader Ewald Fourie.

The cars are most likely undergoing hot-weather testing as the Northern Cape is a favourite testing ground for carmakers.

It seems as if the A5 will on size compete more against the likes of the Mercedes CLK and even the BMW 6 Series.

The photos also show that Audi is basically transforming its eye-catching Nuvolari concept car into a 2+2 production version.

As reported on Friday, the A5 will get the usual array of Audi engines while performance versions, an S5 and RS5 are on the cards too.

Recently Audi SA told Wheels24 that the A5 is destined for South Africa too, but it will only arrive here early in 2008.
