Dynamic performance where the sky's the limit - Audi introduces the Audi RS5 Cabriolet. The four-seat convertible with a cloth soft top entices with a unique combination of elegance and power. Its 4.2 FSI, a high-revving naturally aspirated V8 engine, outputs 331 kW (450 hp). It accelerates the high-performance sports car from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.9 seconds.
The lightweight textile roof of the Audi RS5 Cabriolet spans over the generously proportioned interior space like a low curved dome; a special foam layer in the roof delivers high acoustic comfort. At the press of a button, the soft top opens and closes fully automatically in 15 seconds and 17 seconds respectively - even when driving at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31.07 mph).
The Audi RS5 Cabriolet measures 4,649 mm (15.25 ft) long, 1,860 mm (6.10 ft) wide and 1,380 mm (4.53 ft) high, and its wheelbase is 2,751 mm (9.03 ft). Eight exterior colors are available - a monochrome color, four metallic and pearl effect colors and three crystal effect paints. The soft top is available in black, gray, red or brown. As options, Audi can install a styling package in matt aluminum as well as an engine compartment design package that uses carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials. The car's drag coefficient is 0.34; underbody panels make a significant contribution towards aerodynamic refinement.
ustomer deliveries of the Audi RS5 Cabriolet begin in early 2013 in Germany. The base price in the home market will be 88,500 euros.
