2008 Audi RS4 Cabriolet Pricing Announced

Audi has announced the pricing for the RS4 Cabriolet that the US will finally get this fall. If you can part with $81,900 plus destination and gas-guzzling fees, you better run to your Audi dealer, since only 300 will make the trip over. The RS4 has a 4.2L FSI V8 that puts out 420 horsepower and 317 lb.-ft. of torque.

The convertible is significantly higher than the RS4 sedan at $66k, but to some people it may be worth it. Unlike the sedan version, Audi is only planning on selling 300 of the Cabriolet versions in the US.
