The RS story has unfolded over the last fifteen years, delivering a series of elegant yet supremely powerful models – and the RS 5 Cabriolet is no exception. As a direct descendant of our most exciting high-performance models, it’s the culmination of the technical expertise we’ve gained on roads and racetracks all over the world. Our long history of motorsport success is evident throughout the RS 5 Cabriolet. Some of the world’s toughest races have taught us how to propel our cars ever more powerfully, responsively and efficiently. The RS 5 Cabriolet’s engine epitomises this knowledge. A close relative of the V10 in the Audi R8, the 4.2 V8 FSI® engine develops 450PS and transmits a maximum of 430 Nm of torque. However, you’ll see as you read on, there’s much more to the RS 5 Cabriolet than thrilling power and handling – but we think you’ll agree that these qualities are an excellent place to start.
