Audi RS5 Cabriolet

Audi has officially unveiled the Audi RS5 Cabriolet. Awesome! Check the video below.

Audi’s much loved 4.2-liter FSI V8 is nestled under the hood, sending 450 horsepower through a seven-speed S-Tronic dual-clutch gearbox to Audi’s Quattro all wheel drive. The S-Tronic can be operated via steering wheel paddle shifters, while the Quattro system uses a 40:60 front/rear power ratio. Depending on the conditions, it can transfer up to 70 percent of power to the front wheels, or 85 percent to the rear when needed. Together, these systems will allow the RS5 to get from a standstill up to 62 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but according to the translation, the customer can ask to have that raised to 280 km/h (174 mph).
