• 2012 Audi S8 rendered

Now that Audi has officially unveiled the A8 luxury sedan, the next logical step is the S8. And today we bring a new rendering of that very car. A rendering that just may be the closest to the final product.

The 2012 Audi S8 will feature a new horizontal strut style grille and lower needle intake accents, just like the ones from the Audi TTS. It will also include silver mirror caps, an S-car staple, and, of course, S-style wheels.

Under the hood there will be a supercharged V8 engine bringing more low-end torque and better fuel economy than the V10 fitted in the current model. This V8 engine will produce a total output of 450 HP and will be mated to a 7-speed double-clutch S Tronic.

Not fooling anyone with that shopage. More of an RS than the S style.

It’s about time that some news of the next gen A6 shows up. Tks for the scoop. It would be very disappointing if Audi failed to include the Avant in the gen line up.
