2015 Frankfurt Motor Show: New Audi S8 Plus dominates the stage at IAA

Audi pulled the wraps off the new S8 Plus, a high-performance sedan that comes with a quite steep pricing tag of almost €150,000. In order to justify this amount of money, Audi gives you a potent 4.0-liter TFSI engine capable to deliver 605 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. Extra 50 Nm are available thanks to the overboost function.

The V8 engine makes the 0-100 km/h sprint possible in just 3,8 seconds with a top speed of 305 km/h.

On the other hand, styling tweaks include some huge 21-inch alloy wheels, carbon fiber finish for the side mirror caps as well as the intake bezels, new carbon ceramic brakes with gray calipers as well as tweaked optical blocks.

In the rear we find a big stainless steel exhaust system while other features include an adaptive air suspension and a new dnamic steering system.

Step inside and you will find piano accents with aluminum trim, new sport seats with red stitching as well as stainless steel pedals. The all-new Audi S8 Plus is certainly a mighty beast in Audi’s portfoliom the starting price and the performance figures being two main reasons to consider this.
