The new S8 plus reveals its position as the sportiest top model of the model series in its design detailing.

Audi has today unveiled the highest-powered sedan in the premium range: the new S8 plus. With a power output of 597 hp and a top speed of up to 190 mph (305 km/h), the new Audi S8 plus delivers even more enhanced driving performance.

With the new model, Audi hopes to keep in touch with the segment leaders such as the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S Class.

"We have further sharpened our large sport sedan," says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Board Member for Technical Development at AUDI AG; he continues "The new Audi S8 plus has a substantial gain in power and defines the pinnacle of sporty performance in the segment. That is why 'plus' appears in its name."

The increase in top speed to 190 mph (305 km/h) is part of the dynamic package, which is a standard feature in Germany. In addition to carbon-fiber reinforced ceramic brakes with anthracite-gray brake calipers and the Audi ceramic logo, the package also includes a sport exhaust system modified by quattro GmbH. It gives the S8 plus an unmistakably sporty V8 sound characteristic.

S8 plus' Exterior Desing

The new S8 plus reveals its position as the sportiest top model of the model series in its design detailing. The standard spoiler lip on the rear lid catches the eye. It is painted in the exterior body color, and it is also available in carbon fiber as an option. The flaps in the side air inlets and the blade on the front apron are made of carbon fiber. The mirror housings in body color are optionally available in gloss black or carbon. The Singleframe grille and double bars are in gloss black, while the honeycomb structure of the side air inlets and radiator screen are in matt black. The trim strips on the side windows and at the rear are gleam in black. Distinctive design characteristics of the S8 plus also include darkened tail lights and a gloss black diffuser insert, which has an additional carbon surround. The dual-branch sport exhaust system branches into two oval gloss black tailpipes on the left and right.

As an alternative, customers can choose the S8 styling package. It features S8 logos at the front and rear and V8 T badges on the front fenders. The matt-effect paint finish floret silver is exclusively available on the S8 plus. All of the colors offered on the S8 are also available on the S8 plus.

Matrix LED Headlights

The headlights feature Matrix LED technology as standard equipment in Germany; they come with dynamic turn signals. The extremely precise high-beam units each have 25 small, individual LEDs that can be individually switched on or off or dimmed as needed. They illuminate the road superbly without causing glare to oncoming traffic.
