It’s chilly outside the Detroit’s Cobo Hall, but the bright red S5 Cabriolet from Audi is displayed on the convention floor at the NAIAS supposes that we should expect the performance offering soon, but in some warmer times.
The S5 Cabriolet has almost the same look as the other model’s variations, just the roof is opening. It takes the top 15 seconds to open and 18 seconds to close. Inside supportive seats hold the passengers tight. Carbon fibber dashboard trim hints that the model is a performance-focused one.
The droptop received a 40% enhancement in torsional stiffness. Now it is 99 pounds lighter than the previous model. The car rides on a 0.6-inch longer platform. The passengers at the rear car’s part should experience more legroom.
Just like the other vehicles within the S5 range, the cabriolet under discussion is equipped with a 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine that produces 354 hp and torque of 369 pound-feet. The engine is joined to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The vehicle accelerates up to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
