Inspired by motor sport. The high-rev concept.

Up and away. Leave everything behind you for a while. The 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine that powers the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet will help you do just that. With its output of 331 kW (450 hp) it will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. The tried and proven high-rev concept allows outstanding elasticity. The engine responds spontaneously at all times to enable you to experience impressive agility.

The V8 FSI engine

The first time you turn on the ignition you will feel the power of the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet. This is delivered by the 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine: it features FSI® petrol direct injection technology, which we have transferred from the race track to the road, and operates with our tried and proven high-revving concept. It provides a high power yield per litre of displacement coupled with even power delivery across the entire engine speed range. The extremely agile and free-revving powerplant responds spontaneously and also produces a rich and full sound. Furthermore, the RS 5 Cabriolet sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds – effortlessly reaching the 200 km/h mark after a further 11.5 seconds.
S tronic® offers a double saving: time and energy

The 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission not only combines two gearboxes in one, but also sportiness and efficiency. The high level of efficiency and the rapid gear changes deliver even greater driving pleasure. Find out more
quattro® – permanent power to all four wheels

The quattro permanent drive system guarantees more driving pleasure – especially on slippery road surfaces. The self-locking crown gear centre differential is employed for this purpose in RS models. If the wheels of one axle lose grip and threaten to spin, the drive torque is redirected to the other axle, fully automatically and continuously. The result: better acceleration, greater lateral stability, improved traction, enhanced safety and even more driving pleasure. Find out more
