    3. Audi S8 Voted 'Most Coveted' by Car Thieves Says NHTSA Study

      The American National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has just released a study tracking theft rates of model year 2009 automobiles in 2009 and the Audi S8 gets an honorable mention.

      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.

    5. 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.

    8. 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 ...
    9. Feature Car: Adam Woodhams' Bagged D2 Audi S8 Featured on Audizine

      One of the largest trends in the tuning scene, particularly in California, is the stance look doable via air bag suspensions. And while air suspension companies have been lining up for kits of popular chassis like that of the Audi A3, kits for rare cars like a D2 Audi S8 aren't exactly readily available. Lack of availability didn't scare Adam Woodhams though. Woodhams is the "Adam" behind "Adam's ...

      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 ...
