Default The new A5 Sportsback colors

Hi,

I'm about to spec and order the facelifted 2012 A5 Sportsback, and I'm having trouble selecting the color :-)

Have you found videos/pics of the Cuvée Silver, Glacier White and Ice Silver A5? My dealer doesn't have a Cuvée yet.

Not a SB, but here is my A5 in Ice Silver.

JimR's link is the best one I found too. Luckily Edinburgh Audi have a SB in Cuvee in the showroom. It gives a nice contrast to the lighter silver of the alloy wheels.
My favourite color was the Volcano Red but on an A5 it is a £1850 extra!

Looks to me like a marketing ploy to avoid calling it 'beige'

Cheers

Volcano is available as an S5 colour but also as a standard TT colour so there's lots of TT pics:

No way, thats not red thats ORANGE !

Im definitely happy with my phantom black selection. There was a pretty lame selection of S5 colours when I specced my new car the only "different" colour I liked was Sepang but it is becoming very popular now.

I actually kind of like it. It does look like theres a lot of orange in that red though.





I'm hoping for Misano Red when the 2013 comes in the US.

Volcano Red hints at hot lava. "Orange" would be more like the paint on a lot of Ford Focus ST's and RS's:

Yep half of all colours available look like black (in the brochure at least). Good to see that Audi have finally ditched that Oyster Blue that most of the previous generation of A6's had.
