If you’re seeking a car than combines classic elegance with cutting-edge technology, look no further than the new Audi A8 sedan and Audi S8 sportscar. You can expect superior levels of luxury as standard, coupled with exceptional aerodynamics and refined technologies. This is 21st-century luxury at its finest.
Pronounced lines and elegant curves characterise the exterior of both models, with a single grille providing a refined finish. The Audi A8 and S8 are built on the aluminium Audi Space Frame – designed to reduce weight and fuel consumption, while enhancing agility and dynamics. Bold, trapezoid-shaped exhaust outlets hint at the line-up’s impressive performance – while a smart headlight washing system and heated exterior mirrors add an extra layer of convenience.
Climb on board, shut the soft-close doors behind you, and you can’t fail to notice Audi’s meticulous attention to detail. Plush Valcona leather lines the seats (including the 18-way adjustable driver’s seat). You can even upgrade to massaging seat controls for an extra luxurious touch. Telescopic steering allows you to discover your perfect driving position.
Engines and performance
Both the Audi A8 and S8 are built for performance – yet the latter takes it to the next level. Thanks to its lightweight construction, acceleration is speedy, breaking distance is shorter, and handling is sharper than ever. Meanwhile, adaptive air suspension ensures an ultra-smooth ride.
Three engine choices are on offer – starting with the entry-level 3.0-litre TFSI six-cylinder engine with 333bhp and 440Nm of torque. Then there’s the 3.0- litre TDI – with 240bhp and an impressive 550Nm of torque for an extra boost. With tyres built with optimised fuel economy in mind, the TDI manages 36 miles per gallon. Over in the top-performing S8, you’ll find the exclusive 4.0-litre TFSI engine – a fine-tuned unit than achieves 520bhp and hits 60mph from standstill in under four seconds.
Safety and technology
The new Audi A8 and S8 are brimming with intelligent safety systems for your protection. Front, side, rear and knee airbags fill the cabin – while anti-lock brakes ensure you maintain control in all situations. A tyre-pressure monitoring system will also alert you if you need to take action, and there’s an anti-theft alarm system to secure the interior. Night vision is an optional feature.
You can also make the most of your HDD-based navigation system, including MMI Touch – it’s all about making your journey more convenient. You can also use voice commands to access the infotainment and navigation systems – and play music through the crystal-clear Bang & Olufsen audio system.
