2013 Audi S8
You better be putting you seatbelt on while driving the Audi S8. This baby doesn’t know anything other than flying off right when you hit the paddle. Especially after this flagship luxury sedan gets a shift up in terms of the engine from the last year. And just if you think that the last year’s 450 HP 5.2 liter naturally aspirated engine was rocking you out of your seats, you better be prepared for this jaw dropping edition to hit the streets.
The 2013 Audi S8 carries the best in class exteriors that have been specially designed for it. Front and rear bumpers have been kept in the body color with bright trim around windows. Driver and passenger seats have power driven heated windows. A broader front grille with the four circles of the Audi logos gives it an awesome look on the front. The overall shaping of the S8 gives a sporty appeal that is hard to ignore. 4 exhausts with two on either side of the rear end of the 2013 Audi S8 have been fixed and they offer a superb look to the rear, much like the front end. 20 or 21 inch wheels are available for the S8 and any of these can be chosen by the owners at the time of purchase. An improved suspension system is available for the S8 and carries three levels of damping.
If the exteriors of the Audi S8 are appealing to you, the interiors are going to be nothing less than jaw dropping. Various color combinations are available for the interiors of the S8 for the users to choose from. The infotainment system has active noise cancellation technology and emits out inaudible frequencies that cancel out the noise from the outside to provide a pleasant experience inside. An 8 inch display that also aids for the built in navigation system with wireless connectivity has been added too.
‘Intelligent’ airbag system for driver and passenger safety has also been installed in the Audi S8. Apart from the airbags, an improved cruise control, lane departure warning, parking assist with 360 degree view available and a ‘drowsiness’ monitor are some of the features that have been installed in the 2013 Audi S8.
The S8 carries a twin turbo 4.0 liter V8 engine that gives out 479 lb-ft of torque with a whopping 520 HP on the paddle. It catches over from 0 to 60 miles an hour in just over four seconds (4.2 seconds to be precise). An eight speed manual transmission control has been set standard for the Audi S8. The all wheel drive technology can also be found on the Audi S8. Both these features coupled with an active cylinder deactivation technology give the Audi S8 a better fuel economy on both the highway and city drives.
So to put it all in the picture, the Audi S8 is an excellent luxury sport sedan that deserves to stand out as the flagship vehicle from Audi. While the price tag will be one to fit only a few pockets, the ones who actually afford this one are going to be definitely pleased by their investment.
