The update of the Audi A8 has just come out, a model that has always been of great importance to the brand with the four rings. The flagship maintains its level of luxury while introducing considerable improvements in areas such as technology or its electrified mechanical range. Although what could not be missing was the sports version of the representation saloon. The Audi S8 2022 maintains that essence and is the ideal option for anyone looking for a high-flying vehicle.
Let’s start by talking about its main feature, which is precisely what is hidden under its hood. The Audi S8 TSFI Quattro is powered by a 4.0-liter Biturbo V8 engine that features leading technologies such as selective cut-off of cylinders to improve efficiency. Like other engines in the A8, it is linked to a 48V mild hybrid system. Light electrification allows you to benefit from the DGT ECO label.
Although it can not fool anyone, the Audi S8 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing that develops a power of 571 hp and 800 Nm of torque. They are figures nailed to those of its predecessor and allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.8 seconds or to reach a maximum speed that is limited to 250 km / h. As usual, this example can only be linked to the eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and the Quattro all-wheel drive, like the rest of the versions of this model.
The good thing about being a top-of-the-range model is that the Audi S8 TFSI Quattro has very complete standard equipment. Its behavior will be improved by details such as the predictive active suspension, the sports differential, and the dynamic four-wheel steering. Note that this model will only be sold in the long-wheelbase body, A8 L, in some powerful markets such as China, the United States, Canada, and South Korea. In our country, it will be available from December with a starting price of 164,300 euros.
