Audi readies A3 Cabriolet for February launch

December 7, 2007/10.58

Audi has done well with Lucire’s annual Car to Be Seen in, being its inaugural winner at the turn of the century. And its latest model, the A3 Cabriolet, could fare well when it hits streets in February 2008 in Germany.    It’s more cohesive in appearance than the A4 Cabriolet, which I had the pleasure […]
