This is Audi’s Fastest Ever S model; The S8 Plus!

Audi has revealed its fastest ever ’S’ model, the S8 Plus, which is considered to be the most powerful model in the luxury super-saloon segment.

The new S8 Plus is powered by a stronger variant of the standard S8’s 4-litre V8 TFSI engine and it produces 597bhp and 553lb ft of torque. That is an increase of 84bhp and 47lb ft over the standard car.

Audi claims that the S8 Plus is capable of doing 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds and at a top speed of  189mph, making it thus just four-tenths of a second slower to 62mph and 8.5mph off of the top speed of Audi’s all new R8 V10 sports car.

The new sportier bodykit of the S8 Plus includes a new rear spoiler, dashes of carbon fibre, darkened tail-lights, a gloss black grille and gloss black tailpipes. Inside the cabin, the overall layout remains the same as in the standard S8 featuring full leather with contrasting stitching and piping on the seats and trim. 

The S8 Plus benefits from new technologies that improve the overall driving experience. The Sport Adaptive Air Suspension combined to the Dynamic Steering system are tuned specifically for the Plus to improve handling and ride comfort.

Audi will be taking orders for the new S8 Plus in October, with prices starting from £97,700.
