I suspect this is the bog standard model which is deliberately not tuned up so that it contrasts well with the not-yet-anounced super model that will blow away the competition

I like Audi. I've liked them for years (decades) but I just can't stand the "Nuvolari nose" aka single frame grille.

There are companies that sell conversion kits for the older cars to look like the newer models but does anybody make a backwards conversion kit to make the new ones look like the "normal" pre-nuvolari cars?

Otherwise, Audis are great.

6.3 litres engine only produces 500hp?

Excuse me? Do you know many similar size engines that produce more per displacement? There aren't that many. Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger, for example, have roughly the same displacement and produce 400+ horsepower. And those are sportscars. This is a luxury sedan with quietness and smoothness as priority.

according to German sources the S8 gets the V10 from the RS6 with 600+hp

600 hp would be easily possible and without any negative long term consequences. All they probably have to do is re-program the engine computer.

There are so many 700, 750hp packages available and I am pretty sure all they do is just fiddle with electronics and voila - you have 750 hp.

The most realistic name of the A8's performance names will be likely Audi S8 and Audi A8-RS. The S8 will produce around 450-530hp I suppose. The RS version will go beyond 550+ so It can match up with the S600 of Mercedes, BMW 760i produces around 550hp? So 760i won't be a big contender against the A8-RS but the S600 will put up a fight :)

Will it be called RS8 perhaps?

New S8 will use 4.0litre supercharged V8 which only produces 450hp.


User avatar

Georg  10y ago

if you want power in the large A8 buy the new S8 rumours claim 600-700hp...


User avatar

phavyarden  10y ago

i thought that it would be wuicker and more powerful than the 760 li

The engine is n/a. Just look the torque data. If it was boosted it would be 750-800 Nm.


User avatar

FastestLaps  10y ago

Is this engine boosted or n.a.? Looks like a brand new engine from VW group.

Either way - to call it weak one must be driving a Bugatti Veyron.

i don't understand why audi refuses to place 6.0 litre biturbo engine into A8 6.0

A8's 6.0 litre engine is too week compare with 760's and S600's.
