2010 Audi S5 Sportback. Possibly the best looking car we won’t be getting in the States.

Picture 1Picture 3

Just like the drop-dead gorgeous, rob-a-bank-if-you-have-to-get-one Alfa Romeo 8C, the Audi S5 is a seriously fantastic looking car that we will not be getting in the States. This is criminal. And defies logic. Let’s take that last point first: Why not bring it over? Does Audi feel it’d rob sales from the S6? Do the corporate brass feel it’d steal thunder from the hideous and hideously expensive upcoming Porsche Panamera? I’d wager the answer to both is “yes”. But that’s for the market to decide, not Audi. And for a brand set on dominating luxury sales charts, this isn’t about slicing the pie too thin, this is about bringing over the best damn cars, period. What’s more, this car reinforces the quickly emerging meme that Audi is the new definition of luxury. Folks, call your congressman. Say your prayers. Write letters. We need this car.
