    1. New Audi S8 Launched. First Round of Test Drive PR Photos & First Reviews from UK Press



      Audi has begun its launch process for the all-new S8, including test drives for select journalists in Spain. We're heading there to test it for ourselves next week but in the meantime we wanted to share this latest content for those who can't get enough of Audi's new flagship S-car.

      Below you'll find three links. The first is a link to our S8 photo ...
    2. Audi S8 Promotional Trailer Released by Audi Germany



      Last week Audi dropped a collection of detail photos of the new S8 on the public via the company's German market consumer site. At the time, the only multimedia attached was that amazing 4.0 TFSI engine note found via the link in our previous article. Those looking for moving pictures were out of luck. Since then, Audi has added a promotional trailer to the site as well and it was ...
    3. New D4 Audi A8 Body Kit Invents "RS8" Look



      Though perhaps they've wished otherwise, every Audi enthusiast knows Ingolstadt's never affixed its RS initials on the backside of its Q-ship A8. Likely executives and brand managers don't think the raw performance nature suits Audi's big Q-ship though that hasn't stopped Germany's Hofele Design from taking a stab at it and with a very clean result. ...
    4. Audi S8 Test Mule Spied in Alps with Virtually No Disguise



      It's not hard to guess that the latest test mule from Ingolstadt is a very thinly disguised prototype of the upcoming S8. Unlike other S6 and S7 mules that can get by with S-line garb and quad exhausts, the A8 has no S-line which makes the new treatment on the chin that much more obvious. At the rear, the usual tell-tale quad exhausts further confirm the car's ...
    5. Chris Vance, Andrea Osvart and Audi A8 To Star in New 'Transporter' TV Serires from Cinemax



      With the exception of the first installment of the Jason Statham action thrillers under the name "The Transporter", the Audi A8 has been a staple presence. And though never quite as elegant as the S8 placement in Ronin, we found ourselves indulging in the Transporter movies even at their most unbelievable... like driving a car through a stone barrier and into a lake, only to pull it out of the lake and keep driving it. ...
    6. Audi Driver: Jason Statham Drives an Audi A8... As If You Didn't Know.



      Hey, you know that actor Jason Statham? Turns out he drives an Audi A8. I know... surprising, right?

      It's fair to say that Jason Statham has had his fair share of association with Audi. There were the two guilty pleasure Transporter movies (2 and 3 to be specific, because he drives a Bimmer in 1). There was the Audi chase commercial where Statham rocked a then-new ...
    7. Leaked ETKA Printouts Reveal 4.0T FSI Power Levels for Audi S6, S7, S8 and A8 4.0T



      Check out these reported ETKA printouts that have begun floating around the web. Darkop just posted a link to these in our post earlier today about the S7. We knew a version of the 4.0T was coming for the A8, S8, S6, S7, RS 7 and RS 6 but these details really confirm more about time in market and also horsepower.

      If this accurate, then we're reading this that the horsepower for the A8 fitment ...
