These days executives of Audi announced the arrival of the RS5 Cabrio in the lists of the four rings for spring 2013. The price for the RS5 Cabriolet starts at € 94,500 and pre-sales begin in January. The differences with the Coupé essentially concern the body of the car: the engine of the “anti BMW M3 for excellence” remains the same. Namely the powerful V8 90° 4.2-liter 450 hp and 430 Nm of torque available between 4000 and 6000 rev/min mated to a 7-speed S Tronic (used with automatic or dual-clutch manual thanks to the levers located behind the steering wheel) made in the factory in Gyor (Hungary) and characterized by a high technology design: cylinder liners and low-friction transmission, steel connecting rods, forged pistons, high-strength aluminum alloy, forged crankshaft and crankcase in aluminum-silicon alloy.

The commands for opening and closing the hood are made via a button located on the center console or with the key Comfort (available on request) which controls a hydraulic high pressure pump. The “sky” of the Audi RS5 Cabriolet opens in 15 seconds and takes 17 seconds for the closure; this action can also be activated during running, up to a speed of 50 km/h. Once folded, the hood is placed below a fixed panel behind the passenger compartment which “steals” 60 liters per trunk whose capacity remains at 320 liters.
