2015 Audi S8 Is An Astonishing Machine Ready To Take You To The Appointment And Amuse You At The Way Back
Getting behind the wheel of an Audi S8 Always was a rather nice experience. This ultimate luxury sedan packed quite a punch even when it was introduced for the first time back in 1996. However, much has changed since the Nineties. The Audi A8 got longer, wider, heavier and more packed with technology than ever before. What’s more, the 2015 Audi S8 is redesigned slightly in comparison with the 2014 S8 and the Audi designers really aimed to redesign the elements that looked outdated. That said, it is hard to notice the changes at the first sight, but taking a look at the front and back lights reveal to us that Audi wanted to highlight the futuristic character of the car even more.
Additional chrome elements now integrated at the back connect the rear lights and make a rather interesting design that sets this luxurious, but sporty cruiser apart from the other Audi models and really from any other car on the road. At the front the biggest change is the addition of the new LED headlights. Matrix LEDs are possibly the most impressive on the market as the technology brings 24 different LED elements in each headlight and every one of these elements can be switched on or off in accordance with the needs. By turning off certain LEDs, cars coming from other direction won’t be blinded which is rather nice. The 2015 Audi S8 can get this technology if you opt for it, but the standard model is equipped with LEDs, but without that “Morpheus Matrix thing”.
Other changes are not so visible. Lower front bumper is slightly changed, the Audi S8 received new wheels, but the rest of the car remained the same as before. On the inside the changes are even less visible. The 2015 Audi S8 did receive more standard equipment therefore becoming even more equipped than its counterparts from the Mercedes (S-class) and BMW (7 series). Certainly the changes weren’t even necessary. Top notch tech equipment includes wonderful infotainment system that can connect with everything and if the buyer really wants to spice things up, touch displays can be added at the headrests and the seats can be equipped with everything from electrical motors to massage system.
However, the 2015 Audi R8 isn’t just a luxury cruiser. Audi wanted to make it more in line with the sports cars therefore installing in it the best quattro all-wheel drive system, sports suspension with special damper control and an advanced engine. By advanced, we mean that the engine this Audi has is much smaller than before; it features eight cylinders and two turbochargers which was enough to make a maximum output of 510 HP. That is a serious power in any car in the world and in an all-aluminum Audi it is enough to make any heart race.
Official data say that this limo styled car can hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and go to electronically limited 155 mph. We really wonder what it could do without that limiter. It would reach more than 170 mph for sure.
Downsizing didn’t only bring more turbochargers and more power. Cylinder on Demand technology is part of this awesome machine too. Basically, this technology enables the car to run only on four cylinders when maximum power isn’t needed. By deactivating four cylinders, the engine saves fuel and it seems that the transition between eight and four and vice versa is seamless. All in all, the Audi S8 is a car that is impossible to go wrong with.
