Audi S8

Audi S8

The Audi S8 quattro is a high-performance version of the German luxury automaker Audi's flagship car, the full-size Audi A8.

Like the A8, the S8 is only available as a four-door saloon/sedan, using all-aluminium monocoque dubbed the "Audi Space Frame" (ASF), and is produced at Audi's Neckarsulm 'aluminium plant'. The S8 uses the standard wheelbase platform, and is not available in the long-wheelbase of the A8L. The S8, like all Audi "S" models, is fitted as standard with Audi's trademark quattro four-wheel drive (4WD), with the S8 using the Torsen-based permanent 4WD system.
