Audi S8 spied testing in the European Alps

The upcoming Audi S8 has been caught testing for the first time "completely naked" while cruising in the European Alps. These fresh prototypes reveal all the glory and beauty of the S8 set to be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall.

As you can see in these spy images, the S8 will feature sportier front bumpers, four chrome exhaust pipes in the back, and bigger brakes for added stopping power. That excess stopping power will be put to good use now that Bentley is working on their new twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8 engine. This new engine will be used for the Continental GT , but will also be finding its way to the S6 , S7 , and, of course, the S8. Once dropped in the S8, this new engine will crank up the luxury sedan’s output from the current 444 HP to about 500 HP, all while being 20% more fuel efficient than the V10 it is replacing.

I’ve heard a lot of rumors about this Audi S8 so I’m not that surprised. However, I like the efficiency of the car in terms of fuel and the upgraded brake power to avoid accidents because it has a very fast speed.

I wasn’t impressed in the power output of the 8 engine here. I think it still can boost more than its current figure. The twin turbo is just a waste here! I hope they make a redo before Audi will released this car.

It seems that the debut of Audi S8 is near. The engine performance of the car is kind of impressive and it offer a better fuel economy. I hope to read an update for this production vehicle.
