Audi S8 UK Price


Audi also announced UK pricing of the new S8 today. At £77,900 the car is hugely expensive, but the it’s an almost perfect car with great capabilities.

The S8 is powered by a 4.0-litre TFSI in the S8 that generates no less than 520PS and delivers a constant 650 Nm of torque. That means it sprints from zero to 62mph takes just 4.2 seconds, while top speed is electronically capped at 155mph. And it does all that while averaging 28.0mpg on the combined cycle, equating to CO2 output of 235g/km.

The new S8 features an 8-speed tiptronic transmission, quattro all-wheel-drive system, carbon brake discs, air suspension, stat/stop and a whole range of other safety, luxury and convenience items. That in addition to the long list of standard and available features makes the car well worth the money you pay for it.

Audi S8 features and equipments:

The luxury saloon’s ASF (Audi Space Frame) body is made almost entirely of aluminium. Only the B-pillars are made of ultra high-strength steel. The body weighs just 231 kilograms; a conventional steel construction would be around 100 kilograms heavier. The Audi ultra-lightweight construction allows weight to be reduced in other areas as well, such as the chassis.

Fine design details signal the special position that the 5.15 metre-long S8 occupies in the Audi range. The single-frame grille is platinum grey and its eight double bars are covered in chrome. An aluminium-look blade makes the bumper appear sharper, and there are high-gloss black slats and aluminium-look ribs in the side air intakes.

On the flanks, body colour trim strips on the sills, door handles with strips of aluminium and polished aluminium-look mirror housings catch the eye. The diffuser insert at the back of the car includes a blade with a two-layer aluminium-look finish offset with parts in platinum grey. The exhaust system ends in two oval dual tailpipes in a chrome-look finish.

S8 or V8 T badges can be found at the front, on the boot lid and on the sides. The colour range includes 13 shades, two of which – Daytona Grey and Prism Silver – are reserved for the S8.

Inside, small yet effective accents mark out the top model in the A8 range. The multi-way, power-adjustable comfort sport seats have been designed exclusively for the S8. As a no cost option these are available with exclusive seat upholstery in quilted lunar silver. The stitching and piping are in contrasting steel grey, while the upper inlays on the instrument panel and tiptronic selector lever are finished in Carbon Atlas.

The leather multifunction sport steering wheel has colour-contrasting stitching and an S8 emblem, which can also be found on the instruments. Typical of the Audi S models, these have grey dials with white needles – a design which is repeated in the classic analogue clock. The illuminated door sill trims with the S8 logo are a further eye-catcher. The display of the driver information system and the MMI monitor greet the driver with special S8 screens. The shift paddles and pedals are in an aluminium-look finish; a red ring frames the start button.

MMI navigation plus, which features as standard, represents the state-of-the-art in infotainment systems. It includes the groundbreaking MMI touch input system, a large hard drive and a high-resolution 8-inch display. In the S8 the high-end system comes with Audi connect to bring special Internet services to the car and provide WLAN connectivity for mobile devices.

The extended leather package complemented by an Alcantara headlining, a DVD changer, the advanced key with a power-operated hands-free opening system and ambient lighting are also among the standard equipment highlights internally. The Audi S8 is also equipped with LED headlights and double glazing.
