2019 Audi S8
Models for what’s likely to be the new S8 have actually just been found. The 4 private exhaust tips at the rear is a clear free gift that this isn’t really a basic model. Constructed on the MLB Evo platform, the 2019 S8 is anticipated to weigh substantially less. This and a couple of other small tweaks should make the car faster than its predecessor, irrespective of the power plant that it will come with.
2019 Audi S8 Design
What the new S8 lacks in noise, in the meantime, it more than makes up for with existence. The style of the flagship sedan differs from 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 new connected taillight style, 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 desire. However we see practically no features that can be connected with the S-treatment, such as air intakes and big brakes.
2019 Audi S8 Engine
Because Audi and Porsche collaborated on engine development, the S8 is going to have roughly the exact same bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 offered 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 a little more horsepower than the base Panamera, so too could the S8 pack about 570 PS.
But exactly what really matters here is the acceleration. All that power is 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 simply under. And thanks to a coasting function, cylinder deactivation or moderate hybrid tech, the S8 might be … fairly cost-effective, 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 most likely the S8’s reveal will be postponed until in the year.
