On Monday morning, Audi came out with a Spartan press release announcing that it will debut the new RS5 Convertible online via live streaming this Thursday, September 6, before the high-performance convertible model makes its first public appearance at the Paris Motor Show later this month.
We have added the streaming service at the end of the post, so all you have to do is bookmark this page and come back on September 6 at 1pm UK BST / 2pm Germany CEST / 9am U.S. EST U.S. / 6am U.S. PST, to watch the reveal.
The new open-top model will share the same 4.2-liter V8 that generates 444hp (450PS / 331kW) as the RS5 Coupe.
The naturally-aspirated engine will be matched to a seven-speed S tronic dual clutch transmission with a launch control program transferring power to all four wheels via Audi's quattro system.
Other performance upgrades will include a tauter suspension, more powerful brakes and a revised steering system, while the RS5 package will be complemented by a wider body featuring bespoke aero parts, larger rims and sportier interior trim.
