Audi RS5 Cabriolet price

German carmaker Audi is expanding its lineup in the United States and to prove it, we will now present a Cabriolet model that will be available for purchase starting next month. We are now talking about the new Audi RS5 Cabriolet. The specialists have established a starting price of $77.900 which means it is $9.000 more expensive than the Coupe variant. On the other hand, there is not difference between the two when it comes to the engine as both have the same 4.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 unit capable of generating 444 horsepower and a maximum torque of 317 lb. ft.

To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered a 7-speed double clutch S tronic transmission that comes with launch control and also a Quattro all-wheel drive. The output enables the soft-top car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and to reach a limited top speed of 174 mph. In terms of fuel consumption the new Audi RS5 uses 16 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg on a combined cycle. The carmaker declared that it avoids the guzzler tax.

The soft top of the Audi RS5 Cabrio opens and closes automatically by only pressing a button in 15 seconds and 17 seconds respectively when the car is driving at speeds of up to 30 mph. in case the top is down, the model needs 2.12 cu-ft. of its 13.42 cu-ft. truck volume. Beside all the safety and comfort elements, the model also comes with standard LED light strips for the headlights and taillights and with black or lunar silver Fine Nappa leather. When it comes to optional equipment, the ones interested in improving their car should know that the carmaker also offers a combination of leather and Alcantara for the interior, but also, for another $6.000, a standalone ceramic brakes package for the front rotors is available.
