Audi Germany has released more pictures and a promotional trailer for the new 2012 Audi S8, the new luxurious high-performance version of the company’s flagship car.
The large, luxurious sedan is powered by a new 4.0 TFSI twin-turbo V8 engine which provides no less than 520hp and a constant 650Nm of torque between 1,700 and 5,500rpm. The engine is linked to an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox. A sprint from zero to 100km/h takes just 4.2 seconds and the top speed is electronically limited at 250km/h.
The Audi S8 will be officialy unveiled at the IAA in Frankfurt next week. The new head of the Audi S model family will enter market in Spring 2012. Pricing is not yet available at this stage.
The nice thing about this German company is that they don’t stop until they have satisfied their customer. It’s great that Audi had decided to make a redo before the actual released of this vehicle. Nevertheless, its competitors like the Mercedes and Jaguar have an awesome vehicle that can match on the S8.
