Audi / A5 / S5 Cabriolet
SUN seekers of the world with deep pockets and a need for speed rejoice,
because Audi has finally introduced the soft-top version of its beautiful S5
But all is not what it seems, since the Cabrio version ditches the
closed car’s ageing V8 for a spanking new supercharged V6 that offers 25 per
cent better economy as well as similar performance outputs.
gorgeous styling, a beautifully fashioned cabin and the security of quattro
all-wheel drive and the sunniest, speediest four-seater Audi convertible seems
to have all the right bases covered.

ARGUABLY the most elegant four-seater convertible that Audi has ever produced,
the B6-based B7 S4 Cabriolet looked better than it drove, despite having a
punchy and sweet 253kW/410Nm 4.2-litre V8 petrol powerplant mated to the
company’s quattro all-wheel-drive system.
The problem stemmed from the ride
quality which erred on the side of very firm, detracting from the comfort and
appeal of the hot convertible.
Add a nose-heavy handling feel, and the S4
Cabriolet was best sampled on a smooth and straight road, because it would
never be able to keep up with the far-more focussed and enjoyable BMW E46 M3
Convertible that Audi pitched this car against.
At least equipment levels, as
well as the build quality, lived up to the corporate promise.
