When it comes to fast convertibles, there are many to choose from, even if you narrow your search down to a specific price bracket. If you’re in the market for something that could give you a very different (and possibly unwanted) hairstyle, and have about $80,000 to spend, then a four-wheel drive Audi RS5 Cabriolet is not a bad way to go.
We now bring you a POV test drive of the car, which in the usual Winding Road Magazine fashion features no talking whatsoever, so that you can draw your own conclusions.
Regarding the RS5, it has the usual high quality dash, with classy design, however since this is not really a new Audi, the design is frankly a bit dull. What is certainly not dull is the 4.0-liter V8 engine, which makes the idea of buying the RS5 as a drop-top totally reasonable. It revs very high, and despite being a V8, those who have driven cars equipped with it say it needs to be pushed up high to make the swiftest progress possible.
Scroll down and check out the video, but you’ll have to wait until after minute six, before the driver really opens the taps…
