Audi has used the internet to stage the unveiling of its new RS 5 Cabriolet, ahead of its 'real world' premiere at this month's Paris Motor Show.

This is the first time a soft-top version of the RS 5 has been offered, although the Coupe has been in production since 2010.

Prior to this unveiling, sightings of disguised prototypes suggested styling little-removed from the Coupe version, and this has proven to be the case with the production model.

Detail changes appear to be limited to an optional 20 inch wheel design from the RS 4 Avant (unveiled earlier this year), and a permanent rear lip spoiler replacing the coupe’s retractable unit.

The Cabriolet utilises the same RS 5-specific bulging wheel-arches at each corner, along with aggressive front and rear styling treatments.

The RS 5 Cabriolet matches the Coupe on mechanical spec, using the same 331kW 4.2 litre V8, seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel drivetrain.

As expected, the (as yet undisclosed) weight disadvantage of the convertible body means a 0.4 second slower 0-100km/h time of 4.9 seconds. Hardly dithering though.

Speaking with TMR today, Audi Australia's Shaun Cleary confirmed that the RS 5 Cabriolet is currently under evaluation for a local launch. Watch for more details in the coming months.
