The 2012 Audi S5 Cabriolet benefits from a powerful and efficient 3.0 TFSI V6 engine. The 3.0-liter, all-aluminum engine is supercharged to create 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant incorporates a number of Audi innovations to maintain class-leading fuel efficiency as well. Audi valvelift system, FSI® direct injection, a two-stage intake, dual intercoolers and a drive-by-wire throttle all help the 3.0 TFSI stay remarkably efficient, delivering 17/26 mpg (city/hwy).
Buyers seeking prodigious performance and power from their Audi coupes need look no further than the Audi S5. The S5 boasts a powerful V8 engine, dubbed the 4.2 FSI. This all-aluminum 4.2-liter engine provides 354 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Also featuring FSI direct injection, the S5 is capable of an exhilarating 4.9-second rush from 0-60 mph, with the stout V8 providing an immediate swell of power the moment the gas pedal is depressed. When mated to the Tiptronic® automatic transmission, the 4.2 FSI offers buyers 16/24 mpg (city/hwy).
The Audi S5 Coupe is available with either a six-speed manual or a Tiptronic six-speed automatic transmission. Both options afford buyers the choice of capable, smooth and sporty gearboxes befitting Audi's dedication to performance.
The highly advanced Audi S tronic® seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission comes standard on the Audi S5 Cabriolet. Because the sophisticated transmission uses dual input shafts and twin clutches, the gearbox is able to "predict" which gear the driver intends to use and prep the gear for action before it is selected. This results in seamless and instantaneous gear changes, taking just a fraction of a second.
Also available on both the Audi S5 and S5 Cabriolet is quattro with Sport rear differential, which gives the Audi S5 a new level of road holding ability by actively controlling the distribution of torque between the two rear wheels, effectively overdriving the outside wheel in corners. This "forces" the front end of the vehicle into the corner to eliminate understeer and create more sure- footed excitement for the driver. In addition, the Sport rear differential works with ESP® during accident avoidance maneuvers to keep the S5 cars stable and composed in emergencies.
