Audi launches 444 hp S8

In the market for some high-end German bling? Look no further than Audi’s monster of an S8. The German-engineered full-size sedan combines the comfort of a luxury car with plenty of performance juice to hit the Autobahn. Look behind the new VW/Audi trapezoidal grill and discover a whooping 5.2-litre V10, putting out 444 horsepower at the crank.

Enjoy some fantastic white knuckle action with a 0-60mph time of 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. It’s almost a gift and a curse that the vehicle has that much power under the hood, because you won’t even realize you’re speeding until you’re well over the limit. Perfectly competitive against the Mercedes S55 AMG and Maserati Quattroporte, but at a lower price point, Audi has a winner here with the S8.

You need to start saving your pennies now, because when this “über-saloon” hits UK’s dealerships in April, buyers will need to plant down £70,780 ($125,000 USD) before driving one home.
