Audi is making a statement with the new S8 Plus. With a power output of
445 kW the new Audi S8 plus delivers even more driving performance than the S8.
One strength of the large sedan is its lightweight design. Its body is made almost entirely of aluminium. Its design
is based on the Audi Space Frame (ASF) and weighs just 231 kg.
Audi engineers have further developed the 4.0 TFSI engine for the new S8 Plus. The V8 biturbo engine now has a power
output of 445 kW and a maximum torque of 700 Nm; in overboost mode, it can even produce 750 Nm. The large sport sedan
benefits from a power boost of 63 kW compared to the S8. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and its
governed top speed of 250 km/h can optionally be increased to 305 km/h.

Modifications made to the 4.0 TFSI range from its special engine control with speed and charge pressure boosting to
its modified exhaust valves and the inner geometry of the turbocharger that was optimised for efficiency.
An eight-speed tiptronic distributes the forces that are generated by the power-boosted V8 engine to a quattro
drivetrain with a sport differential. Chassis highlights include the adaptive air suspension sport and dynamic steering,
both of which chassis experts tuned specifically for the S8 plus. In Germany, the car comes with 21-inch wheels that were
specially designed for the S8 plus and size 275/35 tyres.
The increase in top speed to 305 km/h is part of the dynamic package, which is a standard feature in Germany. In
addition to carbon-fibre reinforced ceramic brakes with anthracite-grey brake callipers and the Audi ceramic logo, the
package also includes a sport exhaust system modified by quattro GmbH. It gives the S8 plus an unmistakably sporty V8
The new S8 plus highlights its position as the sportiest top model of the model series in its design detailing. The
standard spoiler lip on the boot lid is painted in the exterior body colour, and it is also available in carbon-fibre as
an option. The flaps in the side air inlets and the blade on the front apron are made of carbon-fibre. The mirror
housings in body colour are optionally available in gloss black or carbon. The Singleframe grille and double bars are in
gloss black, while the honeycomb structure of the side air inlets and radiator screen are in matt black. The trim strips
on the side windows, and at the rear, gleam in black. Distinctive design characteristics of the S8 plus also include
darkened tail lights and a gloss black diffuser insert, which has an additional carbon surround. The dual-branch sport
exhaust system branches into two oval gloss black tailpipes on the left and right. As an alternative, customers can
choose the S8 styling package.
It features S8 logos at the front and rear and V8 T badges on the front mudguards. The matt-effect paint finish
Florett Silver is exclusively available on the S8 plus. All of the colours offered on the S8 are also available on the S8
The headlights feature Matrix LED technology, with dynamic turn signals. The extremely precise high-beam units each
have 25 small, individual LEDs that can be individually switched on or off or dimmed as needed. They illuminate the road
superbly without causing glare to oncoming traffic.

The interior of the S8 appeals with numerous sporty details, the authenticity of its materials and generous interior
space. Contrasting stitching in Arras red is used throughout the black full-leather interior. Piping, also in Arras red,
trims the comfort sport seats as well and emphasises the stylish side of the sport sedan. The headlining and rear parcel
shelf are designed in black Alcantara.
A contrasting red thread is woven into the upper inlay. The lower inlay is designed in brushed aluminium. Black piano
paint trims the gear selector lever of the tiptronic and the centre console. Characteristic of the interior of the S
models are the round instruments with grey dials, white pointers, dynamic start-up and an S8 logo on the tachometer. The
pedals and footrest shine in stainless steel. There is a decorative red ring on the start-stop button, and an S8 logo
adorns the three-spoke sport leather steering wheel.
Audi delivers the new S8 plus with the normal wheelbase and offers extensive standard features that include ambient
lighting, a convenience key with sensor-driven luggage compartment locking, full-leather interior package, Alcantara
package, power-assisted door closing and a DVD/CD changer.
