Audi S8

A high performance mechanically upgraded version of A8 was introduced in 1996 and it was named Audi S8. The A8 model was the donor of the vehicle and unlike its donor the S8 was fabricated with short-wheel base and was exclusive assembled at the Neckarsulm plant of Audi. The car was given the all wheel Quattro system of the Audi as standard. The car was introduced in 1996 in the European market. In the UK market the Audi S8 was available only with the standard auto transmission. The S8 differed cosmetically from the A8 and was structured with the mirror housing of solid aluminium, lower front grille trim, chrome-effect Beltline, glossy twin exhaust pipes and the subtly crafted S8 badge.

 

It had sporty front seats that are adjustable in 14-ways, heated and enabled with memory function and the same treatment was given to the rear seats. The 18” wheels were standard alloy cast aluminium six-spoke style “Avus”. When the car was upgraded in 1999 the 20” nine spoke RS wheels were optionally became available.  By 2002 the RS wheels of 18” nine spoke became an option without extra charge. When the A8 was upgraded in 1999 the S8 was also offered the same cosmetics. After the upgrade it was introduced to the North American market.
