Its flowing, understated sheetmetal doesn't knock you out at first glance, but Audi's all-new S5 is one of those wonderful specimens that grows more beautiful with familiarity. Inside, contemporary styling, quality materials and thoughtful design -- common traits for which Audi interiors are so highly regarded -- combine to deliver a more immediate impact. Out on the road, where aesthetics take a back seat to dynamics, the Audi S5 plays the divergent parts of cruiser and bruiser with equally impressive results. Does the $52,575 starting price disqualify it as a dream car? Not around our office, it doesn't.
