New Audi S8 review: is it really worth £100K?

On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
This is the Audi S8, and it just might be the perfect car someone looking to travel in limousine luxury coupled with supercar performance! Under the bonnet you’ll find a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that delivers 571hp and 800Nm, so it’s definitely not a case of style over substance!
Of course, as you can imagine, it doesn’t come in cheap, starting from £100,000! But when you consider that realistic competitors such as the AMG S63 & M760Li are so out of date (and when they were new, cost close to £150,000!), is the S8 the new luxury limo king? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

  • In Mexico, the S8 costs 130K USD. BMW M760Li costs 186K USD and MB S63 costs 210K USD. There is no way to justify a 56K difference to the BMW and 80K to the benz, Audi wins hands down

  • Audi’s sedans are too similar. The 8 doesn’t look anything like a limo.

    vondahevondahe2 أشهر قبل
    • Audi A4 2.5 TDI Of course. It’s called brand identity. It sounds so simple but it’s very hard to master. Porsche have perfected it. Anyone would recognise any Porsche made since the 1960’es. Mercedes was the same until they decided to create more product lines than you can count. They’ve lost their direction by trying to be everything at the same time. Audi has followed Mercedes to some extend but all their sedans look the same. Whether you think that’s a great idea or not, it’s hard to see what would persuade a prospective buyer to chose the next level when it looks the same as the previous. Then why even have different series? It makes no sense. The best series identity I can think of was BMW especially in the 1980’es and a little bit less in the 1990’es. You could literally see a kilometre away if it was a 3 series, a 5 series, a (rarer) 6 series or a 7 series. Now they have the amputated 3 series called the 1 series, the abominable 2 series, the 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 series and they all look like a Samsonite suitcase with the nostrils of a blue whale (if those had nostrils). Pretty? Absolutely not.

    • Yep looks way too much like the new A6, that’s why I think BMWs controversial huge grill on the 7 series was a good idea, clear identifier of a luxury limousine.

Germans realised the British are right about placing the lcd screen where it is and not in a pop-up sort of screen!
