Product Overview

Audi RS 4 B7 (Type 8E) Cabriolet is a high-performance compact executive convertible in production from 2006 to 2009. It was powered by a naturally-aspirated V8 engine that displaced 4.2 liters paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. AWD came standard.
Compared to the base B7 A4 Cabriolet, the RS 4 adds exclusive access to the 4.2 FSI engine. An iteration of Audi's NA 4.2L V8, it provides overall good performance and reliability, though it does suffer from direct-injection-related problems as well as an over-complex timing chain setup.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Audi RS 4 B7 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
