The classic Audi A5 coupe now opens up to the world as the Audi A5 Cabriolet. Plus with beautiful exterior styling, spacious interior design and innovative technology integrated throughout, the Audi A5 Cabriolet offers much more than a roof at your whim.

Now, the latest model year features Audi’s direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 engine, which is basically a de-tuned version of the one found in the RS4 and R8, which produces 354hp and 325lb-ft of torque instead of the 420 hp /317 lb-ft.
