Adaptive air suspension

Road conditions change and the Audi S8 plus is engineered to change with them. The S Sport adaptive air suspension tuned specifically to the S8 plus is a continuously variable, electronically controlled damper system that allows the driver to adjust the body height of the vehicle based on driving circumstances. On rough roads at low speeds, the suspension can raise slightly to improve comfort, while at highway speeds it can lower for more dynamic handling.

quattro® all-wheel drive

With quattro® all-wheel drive, the S8 plus sends power to the wheels with the most grip, helping to maximize handling performance on virtually any road. Top it off with a torque-vectoring quattro® sport differential and you'll see how the power and performance of the S8 plus can really stick.

Dynamic package

Add a sportier feel to the 2018 Audi S8 plus with the available Dynamic package. It features Audi ceramic brakes with Anthracite Gray calipers and Audi ceramic logo and an increased top track speed limiter – which at 190 mph, makes sure you’ll be able to keep pace with how fast your S8 plus looks.

ASF® aluminum construction

The S8 plus utilizes aluminum castings and ultra-high strength steel for weight savings and rigidity. It can help enhance performance and reinforce positive dynamic handling.
