Audi launches S8 Plus

Published 06 August 2015

Audi has launched an even more powerful version of the S8 performance saloon. The S8 plus has power boosted from the 520PS of the standard car to 605PS giving it a 0-62mph time of just 3.8 seconds. It costs an eye-watering £97,700 and will arrive here in early 2016.

Powered by a 4.0 TFSI V8 engine, the S8 plus has 750Nm of torque - the highest output of any Audi in the model range. To deal with the extra power, it also gets carbon-fibre reinforced ceramic brakes and a sports differential.

As you'd expect given the price, the S8 plus comes with adaptive air suspension and dynamic steering along with 21-inch alloys with specially designed 275/35 tyres.

To make the S8 plus distinctive from the standard S8, it gets darkened tail lights and a rear lip spoiler. The mirror caps and rear spoiler can also be specified in carbon fibre. A matt-effect paint finish in silver is exclusively available.

Inside, the S plus gets sports comfort seats in leather with red stitching while extras include privacy glass, power closing doors and adaptive cruise control with Audi pre-sense front.
