New Audi S8 for 2012
The new Audi S8 is powered by Audis new V8 engine
The new Audi S8 is powered by Audis new V8 engine. A start/stop system helps cut fuel consumption and the new cylinder deactivation technology saves 24g/km on the combined cycle cutting fuel consumption by 12% at 50mph, 9% at 75mph, and 6% at 87mph. Cylinders two, three, five and eight are deactivated at speeds above 15mph or when you’re in at least third gear and the engine’s revs are between 930 and 3500rpm.
The new Audi S8 is capable of 0-62mph in just 4.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of 155mph. Visually the Audi S8 has had a visual overhaul with tweaked bumpers, new badges, extra brushed aluminium and inside new seats which gives it a more sporty appeal. The four speakers in the door and the subwoofer in the rear parcel shelf generate an imperceptible cancellation sound that renders the S8 a quiet and comfortable cruiser.
Priced at approximately £80,000 the new Audi S8 will be on sale in the spring of 2012.
