The Frankfurt Motor Show is winding down but that hasn’t stopped Audi from unveiling the new A8 Plus.
Designed to redefine the “pinnacle of sporty performance,” the model features an upgraded twin-turbo 4.0-liter TFSI V8 engine that has been tuned to produce 605 PS (445 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque – 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) with overboost. This enables the luxurious sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of up to 305 km/h (189.5 mph).
Besides the upgraded engine, the model features a retuned adaptive air suspension, a modified dynamic steering system and carbon ceramic brakes with anthracite-gray calipers embossed with the Audi logo. Other highlights include a carbon fiber intake surrounds, a sports exhaust system and special 21-inch alloy wheels.
The interior receives additional standard equipment as well as comfort sport seats, brushed aluminum trim and piano accents. There’s also stainless steel pedals and Arras red contrast stitching and piping.
The S8 Plus will go on sale in Germany in November and pricing starts at 145,200 euros.
