The new Audi S8 Plus

Now available to order

The stunning new S8 plus has been unveiled and is the latest addition to Audi’s flagship saloon line-up. This top-of-the-range model combines A8 luxury with sports car performance.

Based on the current S8, the 4.0 TFSI V8 bi-turbo engine has been modified to achieve a power increase of 85PS – bringing the total output to a breathtaking 605PS.

Combine this with 700Nm of torque (750Nm with overboost) and the S8 plus can accelerate from 0-62mph in a supercar-rivalling 3.8 seconds. This makes the S8 plus one of the most powerful four-door saloons on sale today.

It’s not just the performance that has been enhanced over the standard S8 model. Equipment such as 21-inch five-double spoke black alloys, sports exhaust and high-gloss black exterior styling all come as standard.

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 and is also available in Carbon on request. The standard Audi Matrix LED headlights illuminate the road in high-precision beam with 25 individually controllable light-emitting diodes ensuring that oncoming traffic is not dazzled, setting new standards in safety.

Highlights include:

  • 4.0 TFSI quattro V8 bi-turbo engine with 605PS and 750Nm torque (with overboost)

  • Unique 21-inch five-double spoke high-gloss black alloys

  • Sports exhaust with tailpipes in high-gloss black

  • Rear light cluster in darkened glass
  • Rear lip spoiler in body colour

  • Front lip spoiler and side flaps in carbon fibre

  • Carbon fibre exterior mirrors and rear spoiler

  • Alternative 21-inch alloy wheels
