2014 AUDI RS 5 CABRIOLET: Audi's RS 5 Cabriolet was first seen at the 2013 Chicago show, and is a high-end soft top that joins the RS 5 coupe for the 2014 model year. Visually, the exterior and interior of the RS 5 Cabriolet retains the essence of the Coupe, and when the top is down it only requires 2.12 cu-ft. of its 13.42 cu-ft. trunk volume. The top takes a mere 15 seconds to open and 17 seconds to close and can be operated while driving at speeds up to 30 mph. Some new features are the LED light strips that illuminate the headlights and taillights without any conventional incandescent lamps. The rear bumper was also redesigned; its diffuser is now much higher, and a honeycomb screen insert encloses the two large elliptical tailpipes. On the trunk lid there is a subtle matte carbon spoiler lip for additional downforce. With nearly identical performance numbers as the coupe, the RS 5 Cabriolet is powered by a high-revving, naturally aspirated 4.2-liter V-8 with FSI direct injection that outputs 450 horsepower. With a curb weight of 4,420 lbs., the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet launches from zero to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The car's top speed is limited to 174 mph; while at the same time having no gas guzzler tax. Inside the four-passenger cockpit, the optimal support sport seats are upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara or in the optional black or lunar silver Fine Nappa leather. All leather types are pigmented to reduce heating by sunlight.
