So far only one photo has surfaced of a prototype being tested on the streets, it was extremely blurry but did at least reveal a very important detail about the roof. Audi have resisted the temptation to go for the more stylish hard-top, they will instead stick with a electric folding soft-top which will delight the more performance demanding consumers due to its lighter weight.

The S5 will retain the 349hp 4.2-liter V8 engine from the Coupe whilst the regular A5 will also inherit its sibling's engine line up as well. Additionally the Cabrio is also expected to offer its all-new supercharged 290hp 3.0-liter TFSI engine which debuted in the facelifted A6.
