2011 Audi S8 Spy Photos
Spy photographers has managed to catch the 2011 Audi S8 in action. The pictures were taken a couple of days ago while Audi was testing the S8 in the Arctic.
As you can see from these photos, the 2011 Audi S8 will get an more aggressive face.
The wheels and tires of course are just for the winter testing, so you can ignore them.
2011 Audi S8 Engine Specifications
There is no official information about what engine is going to be fitted in the S8. Some say that Audi is going to put the 5.0 V10 BiTurbo from the RS6, but that’s not very likely to happen. Audi is now working on a 4.0 BiTurbo V8, so that could be the heart of the S8. With the increasing fuel prices and strict emission policy, a “small” engine would probably be a better choice. Considering that Audi is now getting 450ps from a naturally aspirated 4.2, they would easily get more that 500ps from a BiTurbo V8. Combine 500ps with the lightness of the S8 and you will get a seriously quick car.
