Luxury car aficionados who admire a unique amalgamation of sophisticated looks and top-notch performance should seriously make the grade with the brand new Audi S8 model from the world renowned Audi Luxury Series. Touted to be the fastest and lightest from the league, the amazing-looking sedan brings a new, exquisite aluminum body and a powerfully loaded engine to propel optimal performance and breakthrough speed. Although the behemoth integrates a short wheelbase, the king-size sports sedan yet pulls faster and larger. Who wouldn’t want such a deadly combination at the end?
Coming to ‘what makes it or breaks it, the powerful S8 from Audi has been infused with a 4.0-liter V8 engine toughened by a couple of IHI turbo-chargers to speed up the performance. There’s incredible torque of 479 lb-ft as well to boost the model’s straight line execution. So basically, the new Audi S8 should gobble down as little as 4 seconds to jump from 0 to 60 mph. Nonetheless, the maker affirms the top-most speed of the sedan is governed at 155 mph – which undoubtedly sounds compelling enough. However, the company has integrated the engine with cylinder deactivation to trim down the cylinder count. What’s more, the overall experience of a stylish sedan will be uplifted by four wheels through a ZF eight-speed automatic, Bang & Olufsen 1,400 watt sound system, 360 degree camera, and exclusive Audi technology.
Pretty much like other models from Audi, S8 embeds a slew of amazing features as well. Wrapped beautifully with an unprecedented fit and finish, the luxury sports sedan comes embedded with leather seats inside the classy chassis – combined with multi-way, power adjustability. Clean stitching and piping in steel gray along the structure adds grace, whereas tip-tronic gear selector lever and instrumental panel upper inlays have been endowed with an exquisite Carbon Atlas finish. The steering, on the other hand, sports an interesting multi-function design and traditional gray dials with white needles on the gauges.
In terms of technological attributes, the stylish Audi S8 boasts of its great message and ventilation functions, LED headlights, and Valcona leather. Other features that surely catch attention further include ambient lighting, inlays and seat upholstery choices, DVD changer, and others.
Designed for style and elegance, the intriguing S8 sedan has been enclosed neatly within the exclusive Audi Space Frame and a single frame grille in Platinum Gray. The luxury model, however, stands distinguished for its lightweight aluminium chassis which weighs in at about 4,354lbs. There’s a distinctive bumper layout as well which interestingly endows S8 with a sharper appeal. The edgy aluminium ribs and high gloss black slats, on the other hand, spruce up the overall appearance even further.
Although the model has been designed to be lightweight yet faster than others in the league, the performance focused Audi S8 does a lot in its exterior department. There are some aluminium look mirror houses and body color trim strips on the sills – that contribute massively to enhance the structure. However, to complement varied tastes and preferences, Audi has doused the latest S8 in 13 striking shades with Prism Silver and Daytona Gray sustaining the model’s exceptionality.
