Review Finds Audi S5 Good But it's Really Starting to Show its Age

Read more

The Audi S5 has been around since 2007 and even if it’s been restyled once, it’s still really starting to look outdated compared to rivals and other more modern cars in the lineup. Not only is the styling no longer on par with other Audis (even though its coke bottle shape is still sexy from the side), but the interior feels ten years behind what the automaker recently revealed – think TT, Q7.

Audi Blows the Top Off the New RS5 Cabriolet [Photos and Video]

Read more

Another Paris Auto Show attendee has been revealed today in the form of the all-new Audi RS5 Cabriolet.

As the open-top version of the RS5 Coupe, the Cabriolet gets the same suite of performance and mechanical upgrades including a 4.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine that generates 444hp (450PS) at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 430Nm (318 lb-ft) between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm.

The V8 is hooked up to a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and Audi's quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, which under normal driving conditions, distributes torque between the front and rear axles at a 40:60 ratio, but if necessary, it can direct up to 70 percent to the front or a maximum of 85 percent to the rear.

Being heavier than the RS5 Coupe, the Cabriolet variant is slightly slower completing the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 4.9 seconds (vs. 4.5 sec), while top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph), though Audi can boost this to 280 km/h (174 mph) upon request.
