Official pics for the first of the 3 world premieres that Audi will show in Geneva. It’s the RS4 Cabrio, as anticipated. Hairs flying in the winds, four seats, soft-top, a fabolous engine and terrifying performance.
If you really have to know, it has the same engine (V8 4.2 with 420 ps) as the saloon, but it’s a tad slower: from 0-100 km/h it takes 4.9 seconds (4,8 s for the saloon), from 0-200 km/h it takes 17.5 seconds (versus 16.9 s).
Must be because it weighs more (underbody reinforcements to compensate the loss of torsional resistance) despite all efforts by Quattro Gmbh to reduce the weight compared to the base A4 Cabrio.
