Rendering: 2014 Audi S3 Cabriolet Will Have 300 HP
This will be the fourth and probably final body style of the enlarged S3 model range. Unlike the old A3 Cabrio, which was based on a hatch and had a short body, the newer model will be a lot more practical and stylish.
Audi will take quite a lot of money for this car, but will deliver a lot of car in return. The S3 Cabrio will be more powerful than the best version of the A4 cabrio, which had 256 hp from a 3.2 FSI V6 engine. That model got from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, while Ingolstadt's latest drop-top will probably do it in about 5.5 seconds. Economy will be a lot better as well!
The A4 3.2 FSI and the S3 will also be comparable in size. The S3 will have a wheelbase of about 2,640mm compared to 2,640mm for the old A4.
