2013 Audi RS5 Cabriolet coming to the U.S. next year

When Audi unveiled the RS5 Coupe back in 2010, it took almost 2 years before the sports car came over to the United States. Yesterday, Audi dropped the covers off of the new RS5 Cabriolet and we’re glad to say, the model will be coming here to the U.S. around the same time it goes on sale in Europe – which is early next year.

It seems like Audi finally deems the U.S. as an important sports car market. It’s about time!

Refresher: Power for the 2013 Audi RS5 Cabriolet comes from a 4.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine making 450-hp at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 318 lb-ft between 4,000 and 6,000 rpm. Mated to a 7-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, 0 to 62 mph comes in 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph (can be increased to 174 mph).
