A cut above.
The Audi S8 TFSI.

The Audi S8 TFSI represents an extraordinary combination of high-performance motoring and absolute luxury. Its strong, purposeful stance, large 21-inch alloy wheels with red brake callipers and distinctive ’S’ quad tailpipes tell some of the story at a glance, while the 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine with 48V mild hybrid system (MHEV), tells the rest.

Delivering true luxury supercar performance, with 420kW of power and 800Nm of torque, the S8 TFSI propels from 0 to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds, with its quattro sport differential, dynamic all-wheel steering and adaptive sport air suspension it has the ride and handling to match its performance. The new Audi S8 TFSI also features state-of-art Predictive Active Suspension offered for the first time as standard equipment, delivering the very highest level of ride and handling even in these varied ranks.

The epitome of power

Extreme performance meets absolute cutting-edge technology in the Audi S8 TFSI. With its brilliant 4.0 TFSI bi-turbo V8 engine producing 420kW of power and an incredible 800Nm of torque, the S8 TFSI dispatches the sprint from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds and yet its 48-Volt Mild Hybrid system coupled with cylinder on demand technology seamlessly deactivates four-cylinders when the supercar performance is not required.

Driving dynamics are just as impressive, with dynamic all-wheel steering and quattro permanent all-wheel delivering extraordinary handling while the benchmark Predictive Active Suspension system and adaptive air suspension takes ride comfort and handling to a whole new level. Scanning the road surface ahead, the S8 TFSI can literally preload the suspension to smooth out imperfections without the driver or passengers even noticing. This same ingenious system can also raise the ride height when doors are opened for easy entry and exit and, should the S8 TFSI detect an imminent side impact, the air suspension instantly lifts the side of the car so that the impact is met by the door sill, designed to provide greater safety to passengers.

Travelling first class

The luxurious interior of the S8 TFSI perfectly balances comfort, exquisite design and state-of-the-art automotive appointment. Sumptuous S sport seats are beautifully upholstered in rich Valcona leather and feature heating, ventilation and massage function for the ultimate seating experience.

Benchmark luxury

Being a backseat driver takes on a whole new meaning in the S8 TFSI. The Rear Seat Remote control, with its high-resolution OLED display allows passengers to control everything from the individual Matrix LED reading lights, air-conditioning controls, electric sunblinds and colour ambient interior lighting.

The touch-sensitive Rear Seat Remote control can also be used to adjust the heating, ventilation and massage functions for the outer rear seats as well as the sublime 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen 3D sound system which fills the luxurious interior with sound of the quality found in a concert hall.

Illuminated thinking

Lighting technology is state-of-the-art in the S8 TFSI with HD Matrix LED headlights with dynamic indicators and Audi laser light providing unparalleled range and clarity of vision. When speed exceeds 70km/h the Audi Laser light compliments the LED headlights virtually doubling the visibility ahead, but still shielding oncoming motorists without interrupting illuminated area.

On the rear, OLED technology is employed to provide more efficient lights and indicators with greater contrast, giving the S8 TFSI a distinctive light signature and signalling more clearly to other motorists. This technology also produces a spectacular light show when the car is locked or unlocked.

An air of exclusivity

The new S8 TFSI delivers next level ride and handling thanks to its ground-breaking Predictive Active Suspension, dynamic all-wheel steering and quattro sport differential. Giving the car an agility that belies its luxurious size and appointment, the unique combination is also designed to provide the highest levels of active passenger safety.

One of the most advanced suspension systems anywhere in the world, the Predictive Active Suspension works in concert with the air suspension, using a camera to literally scan the road ahead and then raise or apply pressure to each wheel individually as required to iron out bumps, potholes or imperfections to deliver the perfect ride. Also acting on each wheel individually, the system is designed to negate body roll even at speed, levelling the ride imperceptibly, no matter the situation.

Just as importantly, the Predictive Active Suspension also activates in the event of a side impact, instantly raising the height of the side in question so that the door sill may absorb the impact which can help to protect the passenger safety cell.
