2012 Audi S8 image revealed

This is the way next Audi S8 will look like. Pretty impressive don’t you think? . As you can see, Audi is keeping in some way the same line on S models – aluminum mirrors, a big chrome front grill and 20” alloy wheels from R8.

Early rumors say the 2012 Audi S8 will be powered by a new V8 engine that will not come from Lamborghini as the one found on actual S8. According to same rumors, that engine will provide around 450 hp.

Other rumors are saying that S8 is expected to use the 5.0 litre FSI biturbo V10 engine, which currently powers the Audi RS6 (C6) with 427 kilowatts (581 PS; 573 bhp), and it has been reported that the new S8′s engine could be tuned up to 600 hp (447 kW).

However we expect more then 500 bhp. The W12 early announced produces 500bhp -a power that comes from a new W12 6.3Liter engine.

Update: The Audi S8


The Audi S8, which will be launched on the market in spring 2012, is the new head of the Audi S model family. The new 4.0 TFSI in the S8 generates no less than 382 kW (520 hp) and delivers a constant 650 Nm (479.42 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft between 1,700 and 5,500 rpm.

The sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) takes just 4.2 seconds, and top speed is electronically capped at 250 km/h (155.34 mph).

It averages just 10.2 liters per 100 km (23.06 US mpg), much less than its competitors the automaker said. The free-breathing, 5.2-liter V10 in the previous model consumed an average of 13.2 liters per 100 km (17.82 US mpg). Fuel consumption decreased by nearly 23 percent despite a 51 kW (70 hp) increase in output.
