Audi has unveiled the new S8 performance luxury car. The S8 packs a bi-turbo V8 engine that makes 571 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The car can reach 62.1 mph in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed limited to 155.3 mph.
Audi also uses mild-hybrid 48V technology with a belt alternator starter and a lithium-ion battery to enable coasting with the engine switched off. The car also promises fast restart and an extended start-stop range. Active suspension, all-wheel steering, and Quattro with sport diff are standard.
The Comfort+ mode of the active suspension can lean the body of the car into turns to make it more comfortable. Carbon-ceramic brakes are optional, and the car has wheels up to 21-inches in diameter.
