The third generation Audi S8 aimed to bring Brands Hatch to the boardroom, with a potent twin turbo V8 beating beneath the smooth, subtle bodywork. The engine is smaller than that used in the previous generation model but it's also more potent this time round, 520PS enabling sixty two mph to be dispatched in just 4.2s away from rest. Fast enough then, to worry Ferrari folk, yet luxurious enough to rival a Rolls Royce. A very difficult combination to better at the prices being asked.
How to sum up a MK3 model Audi S8? It's beautifully finished, rides imperiously, isn't falsely modest and is backed up by a sledgehammer punch of acceleration. It's a car that does so much but makes such little fuss about it. Loyal buyers like it that way, valuing capability and discretion. If you want to get somewhere fast and draw no great attention, the S8 is one of the best cars in the business for the task - which is why it's a vehicle so often targeted by those of extremely high net worth.
This third generation version teases out those themes still further. The engine is lower key but harder hitting and the styling will appeal to those who know exactly what those subtle design cues mean. Ultimately, it's a car that credits its owner with a bit of savvy. Someone who demands extreme performance but doesn't want a shouty, showy set of wheels. Sometimes, you see, the car is merely the supporting cast.
