Audi Exclusive prepares RS5 Cabriolet

Audi Exclusive has unveiled a tailor made RS5 Cabriolet which comes with several enhancements. The high-performance open-top model from Ingolstadt has received a Mamba Black Metallic exterior paint scheme while on the inside it comes with a leather upholstery finished in black with yellow accents on the seats and door panels while the stitching also adopts the same hue.

The rest of the car has remained the same since Audi’s Exclusive program only applies cosmetic tweaks, without making any mechanical changes. The soft top RS5 comes with the same naturally aspirated V8 4.2-liter engine developing 450 HP (331 kW) and 317 lb-ft (430 Nm) of torque. All that powered is channeled to a quattro all-wheel drive system through a 7-speed S tronic gearbox which enables the RS5 Cabriolet sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 4.9 seconds before hitting an electronically-capped top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Those willing to spend more for a higher top speed can ask Audi to raise the limiter to 174 mph (280 km/h).

All RS5 Cabriolet models come with LED-infused headlights, 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, carbon fiber rear spoiler along with a dual exhaust arrangement, wind deflector and standard heated front seats. Also on the menu is a rear diffuser while the lightweight soft top can be operated at speeds of up to 31 mph (50 km/h) and needs 15 seconds to open or close.
