Audi has officially unveiled the 2013 RS5 Cabriolet which is set to go on sale early next year. Unlike the hardtop version which (from a distance) pretty much looks like every other high-performance Audi on sale today, the RS5 Cabriolet sets itself apart with a motorized folding soft-top, revised front-end look, all-new 19-inch ten spoke alloys and full LED tail lamps at the back.
Under the hood, The Cabriolet is powered by the same 4.2-litre V8 found in the Coupe. It puts out about 450 PS of power and a healthy 430 Nm of torque. Mated to a seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch gearbox, the RS5 Cabriolet puts its power down via Audi’s Quattro 4WD system. Thanks to the 4WD traction, Audi claims a 0-100kph time of 4.9 seconds, which makes it almost as quick as the Coupe. Top speed too – electronically limited to 250kph – remains the same.
