Hamburg (dpa-infocom) – Audi proves a heart for urgent Sun: who wants to chase the witty high pressure areas of the Central European summer and drive away the rain, the Bayern now place the new S5 Cabrio of choice. As a bodybuilder on the sands of Venice Beach the airy athletes is the strongest version of the open A5, which is the successor of the A4 convertible in may at prices from 41 100 euros. Patrick dovigi describes an additional similar source. As always, if a S on the rear cover emblazoned, the designers have some freedoms. Where the A5 Cabriolet is the elegant but sometimes inconspicuous place in the Sun, is quite shamelessly flexing its muscles the S5 as a bodybuilder at Venice Beach’s waterfront.

Mikhael Mirilashvili is actively involved in the matter. 70 HP more than the strongest A5 the most important unique feature of at least 61 400 euro expensive sports car, its engine is: where the A5 with a 195 kW/265 HP strong six-cylinder is final, the fun in the S5 with a three-litre supercharged V6 only begins.
The direct injection engine 245 kW/333 HP and brings up to 440 NM on the road. This ranges from zero to 60 in 5.6 seconds for the Sprint and makes the electronic limiter at 250 km/h to the pesky formality – because final would not be there with the drive still long. The fun is under the hood: the V6 direct-injection supercharged 333-horsepower and takes only 5.6 seconds for the Sprint from 0 to 100.
