The Audi RS5 Cabrio At A Glance

The Audi RS5 Cabriolet was unveiled to the world at Audi’s online premier on the 6th of September. What better way to spend the upcoming summer than with a soft top cruising with the full knowledge that you have an unsurmountable amount of power on tap at your command.

At a glance the main highlights of the Audi RS5 Cabriolet are as follows.

Exterior typical of Audi RS styling.

The body is 20mm lower than that of the Audi A5 Cabriolet and features stiffer mounts and stronger and larger anti-roll bars.

The Audi RS5 Cabriolot has a lightweight cloth soft top, which can open in 15 seconds and close in 17 seconds at the touch of a button up to speeds of 50km/h.

Eight exterior colours will be available on the Audi RS5 Cabriolet; a monochrome colour, four metallic and pearl effect colours and three crystal effect paints. The soft top will be available in black, grey, red or brown.

The Audi RS5 is powered by a high revving 4.2 litre naturally aspirated V8 Engine with an output of 331kW and a maximum torque output of 430Nm. The 0 to 100km/h takes the Audi RS5 Cabrio 4.9 seconds, with the car’s top speed limited to 250km/h as per the gentleman’s agreement but can be unlocked to 280km/h on request. The combined fuel consumption is 10.9l/100km.

A dual clutch transmission transfers power to the wheels through a quattro all-wheel drive system, which distributes torque between front and rear at a 40:60 ratio. If necessary it can direct up to 70% to the front or a maximum of 85% to the rear.

The Audi RS5 Cabriolet is steered through a Speed dependent power steering system which utilises an electromechanical drive unit.

Customer deliveries begin in early 2013 in Germany and in South Africa deliveries are expected to start from the second quarter of 2013.
