Sales of the 2016 Audi S8 Plus will begin next month in the United States. The new Audi model will set back US customers at least $114,900.
The Los Angeles Auto Show 2015 will serve as an official occasion for the North American debut of the high-performance S8 variant. Powering the Audi S8 Plus is a 4.0-litre TFSI V8 engine built by the German marque, it has been tuned to deliver 605 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque in overboost mode.
The power is converted to the road by an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox and Quattro drivetrain together with a sport differential. Adaptive air suspension, sport and dynamic steering and 21 inch wheels with 275/35 tires help to keep it planted. An optional dynamic package removes the top speed limiter, adds carbon fibre reinforced ceramic brakes with anthracite-grey calipers and a sports exhaust system.
