2012/2013 Audi S8

Sometime in the next couple of months, Audi will release official details on the next S8 – the sportiest version of its excellent, comparo-winning A8 flagship.

The new Audi S8 drops its predecessor’s naturally aspirated, 450-hp, 398-lb-ft V-10 (which we loved in our 2007 long-termer) in favor of a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8.

As before, the Audi S8‘s styling will be understated; it will be visually distinguished from lesser A8s mainly by its four exhaust tips and the S8 badging, although another obvious differentiator will become apparent when you push the accelerator to the floor.

The Audi S8’s competition will include the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, whose sporting credentials are derived mostly from straight-line performance and a rowdier exhaust sound than regular S-classes, the quirky Jaguar XJ Supersport, with its incredibly responsive, supercharged V-8, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo.
