the A5 and S5 cabriolets will receive a folding soft top similar to the tops in use for the A3 cabriolet, A4 cabriolet and new TT roadster while powertrain options remain the same.
According to InsideLine the A5 Cabriolet will arrive spring 2009 as a 2008 model, which is old news already. A quick look at the holy grail of leaked documents, Audi rollout schedule by 2012, somewhat confirms this. Additionally, the A5/S5 Cabriolet is expected to make it's public debut at Paris this September and the vehicle will be produced by long time VW Group convertible manufacturer, Karmann. The A5 and S5 cabriolets will receive a folding soft top similar to the tops in use for the A3 Cabriolet while powertrain options remain the same including the 4.2 liter V8 in the S5 coupe. It seems InsideLine may have forced the story to showcase the rendering of the S5 with it's roof chopped off, however, we are glad they did, because its pretty sweet nonetheless.
