2019 Audi S8 spied testing at the Nürburgring

Added by AutomotiveUploads
In this video you see the 2019 Audi S8 testing on the Nürburgring.

An all-new Audi A8 is arguably long overdue, but it won’t be until next year before Ingolstadt’s flagship model will make the transition to the D5 generation. That means its spicy S8 counterpart seen here for the very first time in prototype guise will not be out until 2018 and will probably go on sale as a 2019MY.

It’s too soon to say what will power the S8, but our money is on Porsche’s newly developed biturbo 4.0-liter V8 available in the latest Panamera Turbo where it churns a meaty 550 horsepower (404 kilowatts) and 567 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque. It’s highly unlikely the standard S8 will have more oomph than the model with the Porsche crest, but a potential “Plus” version due to come out later in the model’s life cycle will definitely up the power ante. After all, the outgoing S8 Plus already has a monstrous 605 hp (445 kW).

Even though Audi has plans for an expanded RS portfolio, for the time being an RS8 does not seem to be on the agenda. As a consequence, chances are the S8 Plus will once again serve as the hottest version, unless you consider the W12-powered model as the range topper. Speaking of which, the twelve-cylinder A8 will use a newly developed biturbo 6.0-liter that made its debut in the 608-hp Bentley Bentayga.
