The 2014 Audi RS-5 Quattro Cabriolet boasts a V8 that tops out at a stratospheric 8,500 rpm. And if you treat that number as a ”shift now” indicator, you’ll be rewarded with a soundtrack that’s genuinely worthy of an Italian badge. Various suspension tweaks ensure that the RS 5’s handling likewise impresses. This Audi RS 5 is pure awesome… it’s engine is a naturally aspirated 4.2-liter that makes 450 purebred German horsepower, and 316 lb-ft of torque. The transmission is a 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual, and it’s as good as any automated manual we’ve tried — and that includes Porsche’s PDK. At full throttle, with the tachometer needle sweeping effortlessly toward 8,500 rpm, this is about as close as you can get to nirvana without ponying up for a Prancing Horse. It’s not just the speed that impresses; it’s also the astounding lack of vibration through the controls, and the exquisitely refined noises from both engine and exhaust. On winding roads, the RS 5 starts with the confident high-speed demeanor of its lesser siblings, and cranks it to 11. There’s a real sense of invincibility: Just plant your right foot mid-corner and let the magical V8 and quattro all-wheel-drive system sort out the rest. All this, and it features a power-operated soft-top that remains functional until the car exceeds 31 miles per hour, to boot!!
