For all those that can afford an Audi A5 and have been saving to buy the convertible version we’ve told you about exactly one year ago, we have news. It’s going to be available in 2009 and manufactured in Neckarsulm, a city in northern Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. We are pretty confident that it will use the 3.2-liter FSI V6 engine but rumors say that S5 convertible with a 354-hp V8 engine should be available which is going to be dead fast.
Unlike BMW’s convertibles, Audi is going to use an electric soft-tops to save weight and cost.
We’re expecting it to hit the floors in January 2009 at the Detroit Auto Show.
