what is the blue in the photos on the top?
is that Aruba Blue?
i can't find it in any audi build your own
checked germany and uk and usa
http://www.km77.com/00/audi/a5/g01.asp
this is a great site for car pics
it's in spanish but you get used to the layout it after a while.

by the way if you keep clicking the pictures, it gets the next pic in the slideshow
and after they are done it has interior pics you can't select from the main window

It's 100% Sprint Blue

kmarei, those top pics are definitely of a Sprint Blue A5 (most likely a custom color order for that A5). Aruba Blue is not as "vibrant" as Sprint Blue.

For easy comparison, see the pics below:

Pic 1 - A5 color in question from km77.com site
Pic 2 - Sprint Blue S5
Pic 3 - Aruba Blue A5

I agree. I looked on 3 different computers since first replying, and on all screens I believe it is unmistakably sprint blue. Thanks for the confirmatory pics TX!

Those are 18" 10-spoke Audi wheels available in certain European markets.

Not to be argumentative, but...

I have an Aruba Blue A5, and Pic 1 is exactly the same as mine. Pic 2 looks lighter and is the Sprint Blue. Pic 3 looks like Aruba Blue but in bad lighting conditions.

If the sun ever decides to come out in North Wales I'll take a pic and post it!!

yes please
if that is aruba blue i want to order it in that colour
i don't really like any of the colours available in the US
and if i can't find anything else i will order black
which is nice but a handfull trying to keep clean
i wonder if aruba blue would look good with the cinammon brown interior?

I thought the same, too. Aruba seems to be widely diferent colours, depending on the lighting conditions. I've even been parked next to an S5 outside the dealers, in bright sunshine and had trouble telling the shades apart from 50 metres away. I think a lot of the Audi publicity photos are misleading regarding exact colour because of camera filters, photoshop etc.

I think it's Aruba Blue because the pic says A5 3.0TDI, which is only available in Aruba Blue on both US & UK Audi sites.

Only S5 offers Sprint Blue, which is not what the badge on that car says...

but you can special order any colour you want for $2500

or yellow
