Both the Audi RS 5 Cabriolet and new 2014 R8 will be making their American debut at the upcoming 2013 Detroit Auto Show, before going on sale in spring on 2013. 

The RS 5 Cabriolet shares the same look and specifications as the RS 5 Coupe, though it offers the open top experience. Power comes from a 450-hp 4.2-liter V8 engine that will propel the car from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds, all while achieving 18 mpg combined, helping it to avoid the gas guzzler tax. For looks, a matte aluminum frame wraps the large front grille and lower lip of the car, while Xenon plus wedge-shaped headlamps and LED strips sit above two large air intaks that are imbedded in the front apron.

The updated 2014 R8 gets a new range-topping model known as the R8 V10 Plus, and also  gets a new S Tronic dual-clutch seven-speed transmission along with new LED headlights.  The V10 models with the S tronic completes the 0-60 mph sprint in 3.4 seconds and generates 525 horsepower with 391 lb.-ft. of torque.
