The lightweight core of dynamic driving

Intelligent power

Even Audi engineers believe in downtime, at least in a manner of speaking. Our 4.0-liter TFSI® V8 is capable of up to 481 lb-ft of torque when the situation calls for it. But in more relaxed conditions, the Audi cylinder on demand™ engine efficiency technology deftly deactivates four cylinders, helping minimize fuel consumption.* That's smart and efficient thinking.

Handle the road intelligently with quattro®

Speed by itself isn't enough.* Audi quattro® all-wheel drive with torque vectoring and a sport differential helps the S8 react confidently in almost any road condition. Under normal road conditions, the S8 is rear-biased with a 40:60 rear power split, giving it agility and stability. And when conditions change, torque is distributed to the wheels that need it most. This is intelligent performance.

Lighting that makes a mark

Brilliant and iconic, the Audi S8 employs full LED headlight technology. Strikingly designed and brilliantly effective, these lights help recreate daylight and can reduce the strain on the driver's eye.* And fast-acting LED taillight technology helps ensure you'll be spotted by other drivers.
