Audi's S5 Cabriolet will cost from £42,245 when it goes on sale in October.

A 328bhp supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine powers the S5 and a seven-speed S tronic semi-automatic transmission and quattro four-wheel drive come as standard. This is in contrast to the S5 Coupe, which has a 4.2-litre V8.

Audi says that the S5 Coupe will also get the V6 engine at some point in its production lifetime.

The Cabriolet does 0-62mph in 5.6 seconds - that's half a second slower than the S5 Coupe – and has a limited top speed of 155mph. Average fuel economy is 29.1mpg, while CO2 emissions are 224g/km.

Other additions that make the S5 stand out from the rest of the A5 Cabriolet's range include:
•Lowered suspension
•19-inch alloy wheels
•Aluminium-coloured door mirrors
•Black brake calipers with a S5 logos

The roof lowers in 15 seconds and takes 17 seconds to go back up. Both functions can be completed at speeds of up to 31mph.
