Audi has just unveiled its new RS5 cabriolet. The new RS5 Cabriolet takes just 15 seconds to drop its roof which can be activated at driving speeds of up to 50kph. The roof will consume only 60 litres of the 380-litre total volume and should sound phenomenal if the hard-top RS5’s feral exhaust note is anything to by. A naturally aspirated 331kW/430Nm 4.2-litre V8 powers all four wheels through a seven-speed S-tronic transmission. It gets dynamic dampers as standrad kit with programmable modes for the steering and transmission, so it should be a hoot to drive. The acceleration figure has suffered slightly as a result of the structural reinforcing to compensate for the loss of the roof but it will still hit 100kph in 4.9 seconds (0.4s off the hard-top version). The top speed is unchanged at 250kph but can be raised to 280kph on request. Visually, the car retains much of its hard-top brothers styling cues. As a result it gets the company’s newly pressed headlights, bevelled grille, remodelled front bumper with bigger air dams and twin-barrel oval exhaust tips. The base price for the RS5 is 88,500 Euros. Local pricing hasn’t been announced yet but expect to fork out upwards of a million Rand.
