Audi's quickest ever soft-top will hit the UK next spring.
5 September 2003

The S4 cabriolet is powered by the same 340bhp 4.2-litre V8 as the saloon and estate S4 and will be priced at just under £40,000. It makes its first public appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The extra weight of the roof mechanism means the 0-62mph time rises slightly compared with the saloon, from 5.6 to 5.9 seconds, but the top speed is still an electronically limited 155mph.
Audi will open the order book early next year on its first four-wheel-drive soft-top, with both six-speed manual and Tiptronic-style transmission on offer.

    Super saloon deploys four-wheel drive to improve every facet of its driving experience. Faster and more capable than any, and more exciting than most, of its celebrated predecessors

    More power and an intoxicating soundtrack have breathed new life into our love affair with the biggest, baddest Range Rover Sport variant

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
