Despite the face altering performance the S5 Cabriolet is reasonably practical. There is space for four adults, fuel consumption is a combined average of 29.1mpg, emissions are only 224g/km, and the boot holds up to 380-litres of emergency dental supplies.
Another party piece is the 'acoustic hood'. This reduces external noise intrusion to virtually the same level as the fixed-head coupé. This heavily insulated soft-top can be operated up to 31mph and retracts in only fifteen seconds. It also raises in seventeen seconds if your jealous neighbour performs a rain dance.
The Audi S5 Cabriolet is priced at £42,245 on-the-road.
