The Audi A8's Equipment
The 4.0 TFSI engine has been improved for the new Audi S8 plus: The sonorous V8 biturbo unit now manages 445 kW and delivers a maximum torque of 700 Nm, and with overboost temporarily even up to 750 Nm. This sports sedan sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, with a maximum speed of up to 305 km/h with the dynamic package.
The Audi S8 plus is a statement of impressive sportiness. The lines follow a clear, expressive design. The standard spoiler lip on the boot lid immediately catches the eye. It is painted in the car's colour, and on request is also available in carbon. The standard Audi Matrix LED headlights illuminate the road beautifully in a high-precision beam with 25 small LEDs per unit. The oncoming traffic is not dazzled.
The Braking Power
With the dynamic package the maximum speed is increased to 305 km/h. The braking power needed for this is provided by ceramic brakes inspired by racing car driving. They bring the vehicle to a stop rapidly and precisely, even with its increased engine power. This way you can rely on its diverse strengths in every situation.
Among other things, the interior of the Audi S8 plus features numerous sporty details and a generous amount of space. Arras red contrast stitching brings out the black full-grain leather in the interior, and piping, also in arras red, borders the comfortable sports seats, emphasizing the stylish side of the sports sedan.
A Strong Personality
The new Audi S8 plus reveals its position as the sportiest model in the series with its design details. At first glance, the standard spoiler lip on the boot lid is the first thing that catches the eye. It is painted in the car's colour, and is optionally also available made of carbon. The flaps in the side air intakes and the blade on the front spoiler are made of carbon.
The car body colour mirror housings are alternatively available in glossy black or in carbon. The Singleframe radiator grille and double spokes are left in glossy black, but the honeycomb lattice structure of the side air intakes and the radiator grille are in matt black. The trims on the side windows and rear are in glossy black.
The striking design features of the Audi S8 plus also include the darkened rear lights and the diffuser insert in glossy black, edged with an additional carbon brace. The dual-branch exhaust system ends in two oval, shiny black tailpipes, left and right. The customer has the option of choosing the S8 look.
