    • Check out the new 563 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque 2020 D5 Audi S8

      The previous generation Audi S8 overachieved in performance and really was a powerhouse especially when it came to tuning. The new D5 generation S8 likely will not be different in that respect but in the USA it will only come in the heavier long wheelbase option.


      Audi is putting an emphasis seemingly on the luxury and comfort aspect of the S8 which is fine. AudiBoost is a fan of the performance though.

      The new 4.0 twin turbo V8 is a Porsche derived design. Audi adds in a mild 48v hybrid system which boosts torque to 590 lb-ft.

      Active suspension is standard with electromechanical actuators at all four corners. The car is able to tilt its body up to three degrees in hard turns. You also get rear wheel steering and an Audi Sport rear differential.

      No pricing, performance, or curb weight details released just yet. It is going to be heavy we just want to know how heavy.

      It sure is a beautiful design no matter what it weighs.
