The ultimate Audi S8 has arrived.Calling itself the S8 Plus, this monster promises premium class finishes with extreme performance.
Audi S8 Plus DetailsThanks to a combination of a 445 kW/700 Nm (750 Nm overboost) biturbo 4.0-litre V8 engine and lightweight aluminium body, the Audi S8 Plus can hit 100kph in just 3.8 seconds. Top speed is rated at 250kph, but can be increased to 305kph. The standard S8 has 63 kW less. The Audi S8 Plus has more power than the current Audi performance king, the Audi RS7.
The engine received upgrades in the form of special engine control with speed and charge pressure boosting to its modified exhaust valves and the inner geometry of the turbocharger that was optimized for efficiency. The gearbox is an eight-speed tiptronic which distributes the power to a quattro setup with a sport differential. Other highlights include the adaptive air suspension sport and dynamic steering, both of which have been tuned specifically for the Audi S8 plus. Carbon-fiber reinforced ceramic brakes and a sport exhaust system modified by quattro GmbH give the Audi S8 Plus a real performance edge.
Being a flagship model, the Audi S8 Plus comes with a lot of gadgets and gizmos as standard. These include ambient lighting, a convenience key with sensor-driven luggage compartment locking, full-leather interior package, Alcantara package, power-assisted door closing and a DVD/CD changer. Other features include the assistance package with Audi pre sense plus, four-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning system, Bose surround sound system and MMI navigation plus with MMI touch. The new Audi S8 Plus will be launching in Europe around November 2015.
