Models for what’s most likely to be the brand-new S8 have just been identified. The four specific exhaust ideas at the rear is a clear free gift that this isn’t really a basic model. Built on the MLB Evo platform, the 2019 S8 is anticipated to weigh substantially less. This and a couple of other small tweaks need to make the car faster than its predecessor, irrespective of the power plant that it will feature.
2019 Audi S8 Design
Exactly what the new S8 does not have in noise, for now, it more than offsets with existence. The design of the flagship sedan is unlike anything else Audi presently has, but it’s not the production version of the Prologue that everyone was anticipating.
From the back, we see the new connected taillight design, while the front is crisp and architectural. Unlike with the S-Class, there are nearly no curves here, so Audi fans are getting more of what they want. However we see virtually no features that can be associated with the S-treatment, such as air intakes and huge brakes.
2019 Audi S8 Engine
Because Audi and Porsche collaborated on engine advancement, the S8 is going to have approximately the exact same bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 readily available in the most recent Panamera Turbo. There, it produces 550 PS and 567 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque. Similar to the S4 has slightly more horsepower than the base Panamera, so too could the S8 pack about 570 PS.
However what actually matters here is the velocity. All that power is most likely to be handled by an automated 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 moderate hybrid tech, the S8 might be … reasonably economical, for a 2-ton car that is.
2019 Audi S8 Release Date
The basic A8 bows later on this year, as a 2019 model. It’s likely the S8’s expose will be delayed up until in the year.
