    Paris: Audi RS5 Cabriolet debuts in Paris, confirmed for U.S. in Q1 2013
    1348757880

    We would never kick a 450-horsepower convertible out of bed, especially one as pretty as the 2013 Audi RS5 Cabriolet.

    Frankfurt: Audi A5 DTM makes us long for tin-tops that can also turn right

    Touring car racing isn't big in the States, which could be in part due to the popularity of NASCAR. But whatever the reason, it's a bit of a shame, because the cars can be wicked cool. Like the new Audi A5 DTM. Though powered by the same 460-horsepower V8, the racer internally dubbed R17 is set to replace the long-serving A4 DTM (and the V8 Quattro that ...

    Geneva 2010: Audi RS5 is a 450-horsepower two-door tease

We can't get a definitive answer from the German automaker, and although we're guessing the chances are fairly slim, we were told not to completely rule it out. Audi has listed the base price of the car only in Euros (77,000), but ...
