Until now, sedans have been for grownups – a safe, comfortable way to ferry passengers to their destination. AUDI thinks it is time to shake the image, and has rolled out a bold update of the A8 to change our minds about luxury sedans.

The AUDI S8 Plus offers a 605 horsepower engine with a top speed of up to 190mph. The body is almost entirely composed of aluminum, taking the body weight down to a mere 500 lbs. Partnered with the most advanced version of the V8 bi-turbo engine, the new AUDI ‘S8 plus’ accelerates from zero to sixty mph in 3.8 seconds.
Details of motor design include an eight speed tiptronic transmission, Quattro drive with sport differential distributes the power to a Quattro drivetrain with a sport differential, and air suspension sport and dynamic steering tuned specifically for the Plus. The look offers a standard spoiler lip on the rear lid and side air flaps with front carbon fiber apron and two oval tailpipes in black. Interior highlights are the black paint trim with red thread accents, gray dials, white pointers, stainless steel pedals and a three spoke sport leather steering wheel.
Take the AUDI S8 Plus for a ride starting late November.
