I hate when company's giver there cars the same power as the next, And i think every Series should have there own engine, Im sure its cost efficient, But it just ticks me off, Like when every damn start up company uses a damned Chevrolet engine-_-

IMO, I think this car need a 6.0L V12, Love the S8, One of my fav 4 door cars, But i never thought a V8 fit it properly.

User avatar

biscione  2y ago

So much people still believe a car in excess of 2 ton weight with a powerful engine can be considered as a real sports car. Maybe in Russia?
Definitely the opposite of my idea of what a sports car must be.
Then as a status-symbol, it is really anonymous if compared to Jaguar, Maserati, Mercedes, Bentley...


User avatar

BR2+  2y ago

I dont see it, When your average person here thinks about a luxurious car, Its always Mercedes THEN Bmw, Audi would barely even come up, Its more a communion car rather then outright luxury, Same with Volkswagen, Ive never herd Prestigious and w come together..

But i guess it depends where you are as each would make a different impact.


User avatar

uptownfunker  2y ago

The VW Passat W8 and the Phaeton haven't been sold here in the USA for a very long time. I guess VW doesn't want to be a luxury brand in America. Maybe VW is the Buick of Europe?? Lol ...And then Audi is to Cadillac just about everywhere you go!


User avatar

Audi, Mercedes, BMW, the big German trio.

Of course they are status cars. The quintessential exec cars.

Btw, in Europe VW badge is considered to be prestigious too.


User avatar

BR2+  2y ago

Ive never thought of Audis as much of a status car, Even the 8 Series, Maybe more today then a few years back, But the only car i thought was a true status car was the R8.

Its great the cars are comfy and have speed, But i feel its a bit pointless.


User avatar

Audi knows its market.

The rest of the world prefer ride comfort, craftmanship, aesthetics, etc.

Someone sitting in the back of an A8 is not going to want to be thrashed around. And if that owner is wanting to drive something fast himself, he'd have a supercar.


User avatar

Fast and heavy fridge lol

Its a status symbol car. Russians will love it!


User avatar

biscione  2y ago

I don't understand what is the purpose of a such fast and heavy fridge. It's not 0-60 time or the max speed to make a car a sports car... but some manufacturers still ignore this!


User avatar

saxy  2y ago

Exactly. The RS6/7 are already rivals with the E63 and E63 estate.

A8 vs 7 series vs S class is about car size. People don't buy cars solely based on price. Else a Rolls Royce is a rival to the Lamborghini aventador

I'm sure an S8 and a S400 will be similar prices? The S8 is all about speed and motor. The S class pwns the Audi in luxury, equipment and ride.


User avatar

uptownfunker  2y ago

.....lol Oops! I mean RS6 plus = E63S competitor, and RS7 plus = CLS63S.


User avatar

uptownfunker  2y ago

As I said, @saxy, I wouldn't exactly consider the A8 an S-class rival. An Audi S8 costs $114,900, and an AMG E63S costs $101,700 - both for 2016. For the S63, you need to step up to $143,250. You need only $95,650 for the S550. I feel the S8 (non-Plus)'s price is closer to the E63.

To avoid the odd A8-vs-E rivalry, the S8 would have to be an S550 rival. The plus version could step up to S63 territory. Take the engine from the CLS63-rivaling RS7 and swap it into an S6, call it an RS6 and you get a true E63 rival. Add more tech and racing supplies, call it an RS6 plus = E63 competitor. I'm not talking about the RS6 Avant but the Saloon.

Btw: half $95,650 (MB S550) & half $143,250 (AMG S63) = $119,450. The Audi S8 needs an almost-$5,000 increase in MSRP to compete with the AMG.


User avatar

saxy  2y ago

Pretty much most things we take for granted in cars today first came from an S-class.

Though I'll never buy one, but I respect it


User avatar

BR2+  2y ago

Definitely, In terms of pure luxury, Or brand imaging, MB is way ahead of damn near all the competition, Including Audi. Although i take luxury with a grain of salt, Ill use the "Normal" conscious of luxury marques. An S Class Benz outclasses an 8 series Audi, And pretty much every other luxury saloon, Its more expensive in every segment, But if thats what you want thats what you get.


User avatar

saxy  2y ago

Hans. Mercs sell a LOT more s-classes than Audi sells A8s period.

And yes the S class costs more too.
Just shows people know what they are buying


User avatar

BR2+  2y ago

Yeah im also sick of that too, ALL you hear about the Model S is how fast it is in a dag race, 0-60 this 0-60 that, Its an important and milestone car of/for the future, But do you hear about its innovative designs? its great looking interior? Its comfort qualitys? No, All you hear about is its acceleration modes, Insane mode, Ludicrous mode, Whats next butt****me fast mode? I mean really. Its Teslas first real car, And what a glorious car it is, Buts its all the bullshite you hear about. I think anybody who buys these cars for there speed, Is utterly a retard, Thas like buying a car to fly...

Also, What is so "Prestige" about owning something fast?

And it is true, We will have to wait for data to come out, But i see no reason other then a power boost to believe it will be faster then an RS7, It might be, I dunno.


User avatar

uptownfunker  2y ago

This "Plus" version seems to be more of a BMW M5 CP/AMG E63S rival, but on the bigger and pricier side. S6 is barely slotted above BMW 550i/MB E500, and S7/RS7 is a four-door coupe. S8...everyone considers an Alpina B7/AMG S63 rival. The S8's a lot cheaper than the AMG S-classes, actually.


User avatar

Hans  2y ago

And Audi will sell a ton more A8 3.0 tdi than Mercedes will sell S500...thats stupid.
It's part of premium brand to makes something the best. It's a prestige to have the fastest limousine in the world.

And wait for some test data. Because it will be easily faster than Rs7.
