What Car? says...
The Audi S8 has some striking vital statistics. It’s almost 5.2 metres long and weighs nearly 2.3 tonnes. It probably has more square metres of leather in it than Air Force One, and yet it can steam to you from 0-62mph in 3.8sec. That’s within a blink of the Audi R8 supercar and 0.5sec faster than the S8’s chief nemesis, the Mercedes S63 AMG.
Yep, this might look like a relatively unassuming luxury limo – it doesn’t look all that different to the regular Audi A8 saloon on which it's based – but, thanks to a mighty 563bhp 4.0-litre V8 engine under the bonnet, it has the performance to embarrass many sports cars. Despite all that power, though, the Audi S8 still needs to cosset you when you want and get where you’re going in as stress-free fashion as possible – otherwise, what’s the point?
