Models for exactly what’s likely to be the brand-new S8 have simply been found. The 4 individual exhaust tips at the back is a clear giveaway that this isn’t a standard model. Developed on the MLB Evo platform, the 2019 S8 is expected to weigh substantially less. This and a few other small tweaks need to make the car much faster than its predecessor, irrespective of the power plant that it will feature.
2019 Audi S8 Design
Exactly what the brand-new S8 does not have in sound, for now, it more than makes up for with existence. The design of the flagship sedan is unlike anything else Audi currently has, however it’s not the production version of the Prologue that everyone was expecting.
From the back, we see the brand-new connected taillight style, while the front is crisp and architectural. Unlike with the S-Class, there are practically no curves here, so Audi fans are getting more of exactly what they desire. But we see virtually no features that can be connected with the S-treatment, such as air consumption and big brakes.
2019 Audi S8 Engine
Since Audi and Porsche collaborated on engine advancement, the S8 is going to have roughly the exact same bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 offered in the current Panamera Turbo. There, it produces 550 PS and 567 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque. Just like the S4 has slightly more horse power than the base Panamera, so too could the S8 pack about 570 PS.
However exactly what truly matters here is the velocity. All that power is most likely to be managed by an automatic and quattro AWD for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 4 seconds or just under. And thanks to a coasting function, cylinder deactivation or mild hybrid tech, the S8 might be … fairly economical, for a 2-ton car that is.
2019 Audi S8 Release Date
The basic A8 bows later this year, as a 2019 model. It’s likely the S8’s reveal will be postponed up until in the year.
