The Audi S8 combines progressive luxury with dynamic athleticism while honing its reputation as the benchmark for the brand’s engineering efforts with an innovative suspension system and exceptional performance.
The 4.0-liter TFSI® twin-turbocharged V8 engine boasts an immense 563 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque to propel the S8 from 0–60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. The turbochargers are situated in the 'hot V' between the cylinder banks to create a shorter gas flow path that helps the turbochargers spool quickly and improve throttle response.
By analyzing data gathered from the front camera, the electrically activated suspension system can adjust wheel travel and damper pressure to help provide a smooth ride over road imperfections and increase damping pressure to help improve turn-in response and reduce body roll.
Under certain conditions, to help flood the range of lighting in high-beam mode, the available HD Matrix-design with Audi laser light and high-beam assist headlights project laser-generated light onto the road.
A 12.3" full HD resolution display allows you to choose between the S Performance, Dynamic or Sport instrumentation layouts - allowing you to choose whichever layout best suits your mood.
Several available packages are designed to treat rear seat passengers to an elevated level of luxury and convenience. Available reclining, heated and ventilated rear seats, and a foot massager are among the features available in the Audi S8.
With this available feature, the front-mounted camera and sophisticated computer processors are designed to recognize select traffic signs and display the information such as speed limits and "no right turn on red" on the Audi virtual cockpit high-resolution screen and head-up display.
By monitoring the surroundings of the Audi S8 with up to 24 sensors, including laser, radar, and cameras, Audi pre sense® 360 can help form a broad picture of awareness.
