Models for what’s most likely to be the brand-new S8 have simply been identified. The 4 individual exhaust tips at the back is a clear free gift that this isn’t really a basic model. Developed on the MLB Evo platform, the 2019 S8 is expected to weigh significantly less. This and a few other small tweaks should make the car much faster than its predecessor, regardless of the power plant that it will feature.
2019 Audi S8 Design
What the brand-new S8 does not have in noise, for now, it more than offsets with presence. The style of the flagship sedan is unlike anything else Audi presently has, however it’s not the production version of the Prologue that everybody was expecting.
From the back, we see the brand-new linked 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 exactly what they want. However we see practically no features that can be connected with the S-treatment, such as air consumption and huge brakes.
2019 Audi S8 Engine
Given That Audi and Porsche collaborated on engine advancement, the S8 is going to have approximately the same bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 offered in the latest Panamera Turbo. There, it produces 550 PS and 567 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque. Just like the S4 has a little more horse power than the base Panamera, so too might the S8 pack about 570 PS.
But exactly what really 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 miles per hour) sprint time of 4 seconds or just under. And thanks to a coasting function, cylinder deactivation or mild hybrid tech, the S8 could be … reasonably economical, for a 2-ton car that is.
2019 Audi S8 Release Date
The standard A8 bows later on this year, as a 2019 model. It’s most likely the S8’s reveal will be delayed until in the year.
