The pinnacle of sportiness.

The Audi S8 plus.

The Audi S8 plus is the most powerful sports sedan in the premium segment. The 4.0 TFSI engine has been improved again: At 605hp and with a top speed of up to 280 km/h, the Audi S8 plus provides top performance in the luxury class. One of the strengths of this great sports sedan is its light construction: The car body is almost completely made of aluminium; designed as per the Audi Space Frame (ASF), it weighs only 231 kg.

The drivetrain

The 4.0 TFSI engine has been improved for the 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 exterior

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.

The interior

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.
