Audi rolled out the hard-top version of its new TT-RS a few weeks back at the Geneva Motor Show, but a convertible variant was nowhere in sight. The reason is now clear and this weekend at Germany’s Leipzig AMI show, Audi will be expanding the TT-RS range with an open-top version.

The TT-RS Roadster gets the same 340-horsepower, turbocharged 2.5-litre five cylinder as the coupe, which will rocket the TT-RS to 100 kph in just 4.7 sec. Audi’s Quattro system will put the power through all four wheels. The brakes also get a major upgrade with cross-drilled rotors all around, as does the suspension.

Also on the Audi stand in Leipzig, the A5 and S5 Cabrio and A4 all-road quattro will get their German premieres.
