Audi is a brand that many people smile about. Sleek lines and graceful performance allow many to forgo nostalgia as they consider a modern quality car. As if it were possible to improve on the brand's stamp on the psyche, the 2013 S8 is set to make its debut in late summer of 2012. Here is a sneak peek at what lays in store for buyers.
The 2013 version of the S8 will likely cost around 5,000 on the U.S market. It features an all-new twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that provides a whopping 520 ponies and 479 ft/lbs of torque on a stiffer suspension than the A8. It is an extremely high performance vehicle, but it is considered to be an executive class sedan designed for commuting and weekend drives. The third generation car offers 23 percent better fuel efficiency than the previous generation.
Moving inside, you can see that the interior is designed for wealthy buyers who are into chic instead of function. Since the starting price will be 5,000, buyers should be catered to. If the interior is too ultra-modern, all you have to do is press the accelerator. As the scenery melts into oblivion behind you, the interior becomes less important and more of an aside. This is a true driver's machine.
