There’s good news and bad news for Audi fans this morning: The good news is a 2008 Audi RS 4 Cabriolet will be sold in the U.S. The bad news is only 300 will be available. The 420-hp convertible will most likely feature the same breakneck acceleration as the sedan we recently tested and that’s never a bad thing.

Speaking of the RS 4 sedan, for 2008, the four-­door gets two new option packages, and standard Bluetooth and standard Sirius Satellite Radio will also be added.

Pricing for both models will be announced closer to their on-sale date this fall, but the 2007 sedan starts at $66,000. We’d expect the price difference for the convertible to follow the lines of the less-powerful S4 Cabriolet, which is $8,000 more than its sedan counterpart.
