With Audi already now sporting an A5 and S5 cabriolet in its lineup, it’s almost a no-brainer for them to release an RS5 cabriolet variant to battle it out with BMW‘s M3 convertible.

It looks like the RS5 Cabriolet may become a reality sooner than later too, as Carscoop has gotten their hands on Audi’s official trademark filings for the convertible RS5 sports car. The images show off the facelifted RS5 sans roof, featuring seating for four and looks to sport the same soft top the current A5 and S5 convertibles have.

It will also be no secret what will be under the hood of the RS5 Cabriolet, with Audi pretty much confirming that it’ll be powered by the same 4.2L V8 with 450-hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to Audi’s seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel drive system, just like the RS5 coupe.
