    Deck, looks like you are right. S8 develop more engine power than Audi claim. According to this dynotest its 570hp. I hope its not a tweaked presscar and that customers cars also are underrated.

    S8 all the way even though it looks like a big A4... Oh well, at least it doesn't have an ugly nose like the B7, though. If the S8 is already this fast, can you begin to imagine what a monster the RS6 is going to be? Anyway, I think fatbeard should have included the S63 AMG in the test as well.

    Don't know how much truth is in this but I've heard the RS6 will produce more than 600hp, don't know whether this is official output figures or actual regardless of what's claimed.

    As for this S8 and its 10% more than official, until customer cars are dynoed we will have to assume this is the norm.

    dont really love 7 series looks, but in that color and alpina trim it looks sick, i just dont get it why alpina overrated that engine so much :? usually it is other way around
    and i used to kind of dig new s8 styling, but i hate it now :?

    I wonder if the Audi is using a Lamborghini engine.

    The 7 series isn't a pretty face but the Alpina trim makes it nicer, the Audi, on the other hand, is too boring. Audi should come up with fresher designs of their sedans, they just look too similar.

    I'd still pick the boring Audi just for that brutal engine and the Quattro system.

    You wonder if Audi using Lambos engine?? Give me a break. And you're opinions is the Alpinas and BMWs models doesn't looks similar? And again, give me a break. But good choise, if the S8 still looks "boring" to you ;)

    S8 might be the best car Audi has ever done... It's absolutely crazy
    I have the biggest respect ever for this car. Biggest respect for any Audi I've ever had. Including the R8!

    You just ate your lollipop, right?
    Have you seen the new S8 in real life and if so can you share your opinion about it's design?
    If it's not a secret what car do you drive ? :)

    Hahhaa, so, then you must eat lollllllipop, if you want that so badly :)

    No, i dont have ever seen the mighty S8. For me all Audis models doesnt looks all the same. I drive Audis S4 Avant B8, because i have a family, and i like Audis desing in avants. You must drive the Gallardo? ;)

    Insane performance from the S8. I wish they had the S63 in this test as well.

    Keep dreaming. Audi will never make an RS8.
