The Audi S8 has officially been revealed to the public and it’s quite the beast. This top-range sedan will be paired with a 4.0-litre TFSI V8 that cranks out 571 horse power. The 2020 Audi S8 promises to be one of the best cars in its class, offering a good mix of functionality, performance, and luxury.
While the 2020 S8 features a lot of new, albeit subtle changes, the engine itself is quite familiar to auto sports enthusiasts. It’s the same engine, more or less, as found in the Porsche Panamera Turbo from two years back and the Bentley Continental GT. Besides the 571 hp, the car also cranks out an astounding 800 Nm of torque.
As with most other Audi models, you can expect the S8 to be equipped with a sophisticated suspension system. In fact, you’ll get Predictive Active Suspension, which uses a camera to determine road surface and the appropriate suspension calibrations. This should allow for an exceptionally smooth ride.
The 2020 Audi S8 will also feature all-wheel steering, ceramic brakes, and various other goodies to ensure a comfortable ride. HD matrix LED headlights will ensure that you see the road ahead, as well.
On the whole, the 2020 Audi S8 should offer an excellent driving experience and solid performance. As a large sedan, the S8 should also be highly practical for every day for driving. As for value, however, we can’t comment because Audi has yet to release the price. Still, the 2020 Audi S8 is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
