Who thinks that having an all-wheel drive, V8 powered 6-speed 2 door-4 seat cabriolet is a good idea? Well, I do, for one. Although it might not make sense on paper and is arguably the least popular of the S4 variants, I think the S4 cabriolet is a neat option that Audi offered the market. With a stellar soundtrack, miles of sky above and quattro all-wheel drive to make it a reasonable year-rounder, this is really a unique convertible that can be had on a budget. While not as sexy or sonorous as the RS4 cabriolet, these can also be had for less than a third of the asking price of most of the RS variants, are cheaper to run and frankly offer 90 percent plus of the thrills. Performance bargain? You betcha.

I love the color combo; the silver on red combination is just classic. Does the S4 require more maintenance than an A4? Yep. Does it get worse fuel economy? Yep, that too. Does it make sense as a reasonable daily driver? Not really, for most people. But if you want a 4 seat, all-wheel drive V8 6-speed manual convertible for Kia hatchback money, look no further. Keep it in good nick and my guess is that people will be clamoring over these in another 10 years, as they’re a rare performance package that ticks a lot of boxes – but like many Audis, few will have the fortitude to buy one and maintain it. With under 100,000 miles and in great overall shape, this might just be the right one!
