Brilliant performance. Breathtakingly athletic.The engine in the Audi S8.

High-performance athlete with the S factor. 382 kW that respond spontaneously. And thrill. From 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds. A fascinating build-up of power. An athletic 650 Nm of torque, from just 1,700 rpm. Impressive performance, intelligently controlled. Thanks to Audi cylinder on demand technology. Reduced fuel consumption. Lower emissions. Combined with a thoroughly brilliant performance. The new Audi S8. Vorsprung durch Technik.

TFSITFSIAudi was the first manufacturer in the world to combine petrol direct injection with turbocharging in large-scale car productionTFSI ® – sensational and supreme.
Audi TFSI engines attain a particularly high compression rate. The result: outstanding efficiency combined with optimum performance. Substituting supercharging for cubic capacity has the effect of reducing engine size and weight considerably – while performance is as impressively dynamic as ever. For power delivery that will win you over from the word go.

Audi cylinder on demand – intelligent and innovative.
Even cylinder heads can be intelligent, as Audi cylinder on demand proves. Four of the TFSI engine’s eight cylinders automatically shut down in the partial-load range. This helps to lower fuel consumption at the same time as reducing emissions. And without the switchover even being noticed or impairing the driving dynamics.

quattro® with sport differentialquattro® with sport differentialThe active sport differential distributes torque from the engine in continuously variable proportions between the rear wheels.quattro® with sport differential – permanent and variable.
The electronically controlled sport differential distributes variable amounts of drive force to each wheel and ensures outstanding acceleration performance in corners and stabilises the vehicle’s response to load change. It also improves direct steering characteristics and provides more agile handling due to the lower steering effort required. With S8-specific tuning
