While some may argue that the Audi S8 is maybe too formal by design, no one can deny its status as a luxurious and powerful sedan. And although it is fighting a tough market, the 520 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque that lie under the hood make a very compelling case.
To some more demanding owners and potential customers that’s not enough power. But with no versions above the S8, they either have to choose a different body and go with the RS7 — rated at 560 horsepower — or take it to ABT Sportsline , the No. 1 specialist when it comes to Audi -badged vehicles, for a little extra something.
Based on the facelifted S8, the company’s latest product comes to fill the gap with a sedan that has all the luxurious standard features fitted from the factory and a hefty power increase on top. With more than 600 horsepower and tap, the S8 by ABT Sportsline has its very own combination of exterior paint and wheels, but, as with most of the tuner’s products, customers are allowed to add numerous extras before taking delivery.
