AUDI S5 CABRI­O­LET AUS­TRALIAN LAUNCH

The new­est mem­ber of Audi’s sporty ‘S’ fam­ily

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

The new­est mem­ber of the com­pany’s sporty ‘S’ fam­ily adds a su­perb “top down” di­men­sion to the S model range. The S5 Cabri­o­let is now the sporti­est drop top in the Audi line-up and has a po­tent com­bi­na­tion of wind in your hair motoring, with a highly emo­tional sportscar driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Pow­ered by a su­per­charged, three-litre V6 en­gine, the S5 Cabri­o­let boasts a power peak of 245 kW, and a gen­er­ous torque fig­ure of 440 Nm be­tween 2900 and 5300 rpm.

The open-top four-seater sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 5.6 sec­onds and ac­cel­er­ates up to a gov­erned top speed of 250 km/h.

The six-cylin­der en­gine unit, with a dis­place­ment of 2995cc ex­em­pli­fies the Audi phi­los­o­phy of in­tel­li­gent ef­fi­ciency.

The power thrust, the spon­ta­neous re­sponse that is the re­sult of short fuel paths and the ag­gres­sive en­gine sound make for a thrilling driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Prov­ing the Audi com­bi­na­tion of su­per­charg­ing with di­rect in­jec­tion is a vi­able one, a com­bined fuel con­sump­tion of just 9.7 litres / 100 km is achieved.

The let­ter “S” stands for sport – for dy­nam­ics, per­for­mance and power, but also for amaz­ing ef­fi­ciency.

The new Audi S5 Cabri­o­let ex­cep­tion to this Audi phi­los­o­phy.

The Audi S5 Cabri­o­let’s en­gine is a newly de­vel­oped, su­per­charged, three-litre V6.

A su­per­charger in the space be­tween the two banks of cylin­ders pres­sur­izes the di­rect-in­jec­tion 3.0 TFSI to up to 0.8 bar.

The Audi S5 Cabri­o­let comes stan­dard with ser­votronic speed sen­si­tive steer­ing, seven-speed S tronic trans­mis­sion and qu­at­tro driv­e­train.

The 18-inch cast alu­minium wheels are shod with 245/40 tyres.

The black brake cal­lipers are em­bla­zoned with S5 em­blems and a spe­cially-tuned S sports sus­pen­sion is stan­dard for this sporty top model.

A num­ber of de­sign fea­tures con­trib­ute to the distinctively sporty styling, in­clud­ing mod­i­fi­ca­tions at the lower front and back pan­els, at the front spoiler and the dif­fuser, at the sin­gle-frame grille, at the air in­takes, at the sill trims and at the four tailpipes.

Shep­par­ton will have its very own Audi dealer with Audi to be placed at Dar­ryl Twitt Motors Shep­par­ton, com­ing soon.
