A luxury sedan with a V10 engine that's being shared with a supercar. The 2000s really were a wacky time for displacement and cylinders. A shame we'll probably never see this again.

Does anyone know how fast it will go without being limited to 155 mph?

I own a 2008 S8. Just beat a 2010 S63 AMG in rolling starts from 45 mph through 140. S8 will pull in, then pull away from S63 (which I thought was the faster car). -- 4/23/2011

Its pretty mush the same car but I believe the W12 is on the A8L platform not the regular A8. Not sure so someone please correct me if I am wrong.
