Everyone knows that the US market is by far the biggest market for Audi soft tops in the world. This is why was more than natural for Audi to bring the RS4 Convertible to USA. And they will, starting 2008.
The US version of the RS4 Convertible will be limited to only 300 units that will only be sold in the US. Audi will offer the same colors as for the sedan version, but a titanium package will not be available.
The RS4 Convertible will be powered by the same 420 horsepower V8 engine used in the sedan and comes with the added advantage of top down driving which allows the engine and beefy exhaust note to be heard. The vehicle is lower by 30mm compared the A4 Convertible in order to emphasize its sporty appearance.
Like the sedan, the Cabriolet will only be available with a six-speed manual and quattro all-wheel drive featuring the asymmetrical dynamic torque split. Like the sedan, the Cabriolet will have 19” RS 4-style alloy wheels with 255/35/19 performance tires, a four-link front and trapezoidal-link rear sport-tuned suspension with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC), and 14.4” front and 12.8” rear brake rotors.
The RS 4 sedan also gets some new and unique features for 2008. Two new option packages, the Titanium package and Audi exclusive package, will be available. The $750 Titanium package consists of titanium colored 19” RS 4-style alloy wheels, black front grille, black side window moldings, black interior headliner, and piano black interior trim. The $3,800 Audi exclusive package has Crimson red leather seat centers (black leather side bolsters and head rests) and door trim, contrasting red seat piping, red stitching on the shift boot and steering wheel, piano black interior trim, carpeted floor mats with RS 4 logo and contrasting piping, and Audi exclusive badging. Sirius satellite radio and Bluetooth will become standard equipment on the RS 4 sedan.
