Audi has taken the wraps off of its latest drop-top model at the Geneva Motor Show, the S3 Cabriolet.
The car gets its power from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive setup provides maximum amounts of grip, allowing the car to sprint to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph, while the car weighs in at 3,571 pounds.
Style wise, the S3 convertible stays close to the standard A3 model, save for S3 badges and some extra chrome bits on the exterior.

Move to the inside, and the car gets a full black theme while the dashboard and gauges are finished in matt brushed aluminum. A dimensional S3 badge is included in the tachometer along with a boost gauge to monitor the turbocharger. All other surfaces are wrapped in leather, while S3 emblems are embroidered into the seats and included on the door sills.
The car will hit German dealerships this summer. When asked about plans for North America, Audi spokesman John Schilling said there are “no plans for that vehicle in the U.S. at this time.”
