this is a brand new Audi S8 which is due 2005. The interesting thing is that it is new facelift version which I posted yesterday. So there is no S8 for the 2003 model. It will feature W12, 500 bhp engine to rival S55 AMG and Alpina B7, and it is running on 20" wheels..Oh man, can't wait to see it on the road. And of course sporty interior..<br><IMG SRC="http://www.niceaudis.ch/news/s8/s8_2005.jpg" BORDER="0">

wish the overall styling of the car be a little different than the A8 but otherwise it's good looking car except for the grille<p>essentially, it's the A8 on steroids <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beigesmilewinkgrin.gif" BORDER="0">

riiiiiight ;-)<p>I really like it actually, I've been waiting a while for an S8... but some reason I doubt the validity of this picture and the name...<p>Audi already announced there will be no S8, just an RS8

This picture is NOT the S8... its a W12 chop...<p>the S8 wont be shown til the earliest this fall, and most likely Geneva 2006.<p>And it will NOT have a W12. According to "Rumors" it will have a 5.2 liter V10 with 450-520hp.

who ever told you that S8 is not going to be launched was lying man.. How can Audi introduce RS model which is more powerful that S version. In the history of Audi, they never made RS8.. The top version for A8 was S8.. Of course there is ABT with their version.. S8 will be launched in 2005.. It actually says on topgear <p>

(in fact it will probably have a more powerful engine than any other Audi sedan, except for the RS6)

i really hope that audi uses the V10 and not the clunky W12. when the day comes that volkswagen abandons all their silly W engines, i may be interested in their products again.

you brought up a good point and I agree. In addition, VW needs to re-think their whole strategies here in NA, before going into further trouble <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">
