Introduction

Audi A8’s laurels are led by its aluminum space frame, stiff and light. It’s a very refined sedan, a strong and sometimes favored contender against whatever Mercedes-Benz or BMW want to throw at them. A relatively dated product, its stylish contour keeps it looking fresh, even though 2018 is the last year of this generation, and brings no changes.

An all-new A8 is coming for model year 2019.

The A8’s wheelbase is long, making a better ride and more room in the back. The high-performance Audi S8 uses a shorter wheelbase that used to be under the A8.

Base engine is a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 making 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. It’s relatively thirsty, EPA-rated at 22 miles per gallon Combined.

If want to get less fuel mileage than that, the 18-mpg engine is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 making 450 horsepower and 444 pound-feet; that one brings a breathless zero-to-sixty time of 4.4 seconds. Both engines mate with an 8-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. For extra chassis balance, there’s an available dynamic handling package with sport rear differential.

The Audi S8 slams 605 horsepower on you. It’s a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that adds 517 pound-feet of torque. Needless to say it brings a rousing road experience, especially strapped into the deep Valcona leather bucket seats, as you accelerate from zero to sixty in 3.7 seconds that will most certainly be startling.

The S8 has LED lighting, 21-inch wheels, quad oval tailpipes, adaptive dampers and air springs. Its trunk is small for a full-size sedan, and rear leg space is limited by the short wheelbase. But it has 605 horsepower.

Lineup

A8 L 3.0T ($82,500) has the supercharged V6 engine, Quattro all-wheel drive, leather upholstery, navigation, full-LED headlights, power front and rear seats, a sunroof, and power-closing trunk lid. Standard infotainment boasts satellite radio, Bluetooth phone and streaming, Bose speakers, and a USB port. Curiously, a rearview camera is optional, though parking sensors are standard.

A8 L 4.0T ($92,000) features the twin-turbo 450-horsepower, 4.0-liter V8.

S8 ($115,900) uses the shorter wheelbase and comes with a 605-horsepower V8. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Numerous safety features include front knee and rear-side passenger airbags. Audi’s Pre Sense system can tighten seatbelts before an impact occurs. Advanced safety technologies come in option groups, including adaptive cruise control with stop/go capability in traffic, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, and Night Vision.

Walkaround

The A8 is stylish, nothing flashy, not even excessive. It’s sophisticated, restrained and low key. It’s way less sleek and dramatic than the Audi A7 sedan.

It’s well detailed. Front LED lighting highlights the expansive elegance of the hood and shoulders. What used to be the Sport package of exterior tweaks is now standard, making it officially in our book a sport sedan. Never mind that the gearshift lever is patterned after the throttle of a yacht.

The S8 is the ultimate sleeper, hiding its 605 horsepower under a hood and body that’s no different than the A8 sedan, except four inches shorter, although it looks longer because it’s lower. The subtle spoiler on the deck lid is the only cue.

Interior

If the A8 exterior is well detailed, the cabin is extremely well detailed, with the best materials, whether it’s leather, wood, aluminum, plastic, or splashes of chrome. It’s plush and comfortable. The standard front seats adjust 18 ways, upholstered in perforated leather, and comfortable; it feels like two cushions, soft on top of a firmer one. At startup, tweeters rise from the dashboard, to name one cool detail.

Two adults have plenty of room in the rear, comforted by individual climate control. An option includes a footrest for the right side and recline/massage for the left. The dual panel sunroof doesn’t steal head space. Trunk space is 13.2 cubic feet, slim for a full-size car. The S8, with its shorter wheelbase, has a smaller trunk.

Audi engineering keeps away almost all wind and road noise. The A8 is silent and serene.

The standard infotainment system is impressive, using Audi’s Multi-Media Interface, a knob on the console that spins and clicks, to scroll and select audio, phone, climate, and navigation.

There are a couple flaws to the infotainment system. Some controls are duplicated needlessly, and voice control has a mind and voice of its own. It doesn’t always respond properly to commands. Good luck if you can find one of those in life.

Driving Impressions

When you read the term lightweight aluminum chassis, it only means that aluminum weighs less than steel. It doesn’t mean that the car is light. The A8 might be your best example (among very few), it comes out pretty porky, at 4670 pounds fully equipped.

But the chassis and suspension engineers scored an ace, in making the A8 feel as light and nimble as a full-size car can feel. It’s a complex suspension, which the Quattro system understands, to make the A8 feel sure-footed in corners. The front-to-rear torque split varies from 40/60 front/rear, to 60/40 front/rear.

The supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine is very responsive and has fabulous torque down low. It’s not especially smooth, and can be noisy when the throttle is way down. Acceleration to 60 mph takes 5.5 seconds.

The gearshifts in the 8-speed automatic are smooth, quick, well-spaced, and well-programmed, which is to say they come at the right times, so no invasive surges. In manual mode, the paddleshifters can be used.

The 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, with 450 horsepower, is basically the same engine as in the S8, with 605 horsepower. The difference is all in plumbing, breathing, and electronics. One thing that means is that the structure of the 4.0-liter engine is strong, strong enough to handle 30 percent more power without breaking.

Drive Select can control the response of the engine, transmission, steering, and suspension. Comfort, Auto, or Dynamic mode can move the car from sedate to dramatic. In Comfort or Auto mode, the transmission tends to shift quite early, and it downshifts a lot.

There’s also an Individual mode, so an owner can find the overall setting for how he or she likes the car to feel. There’s a lot of tweaking and awareness, to find that place. It’s not unlike adjusting an 18-way power seat, it takes some experimenting and moving around.

The S8 isn’t a hotrod, not even with 605 horsepower and 517 pound-feet of torque. It’s too smooth to be a hotrod. t. It’s an executive uber-car. The ultimate full-size luxury car, with the ultimate motor. It’s breathtaking in its power, and execution. With an 8-speed automatic, Quattro, adaptive dampers and air suspension, it’s got it all.

Summary

We like the excitement of the base engine, the supercharged 3.0-liter V6. Any A8 is well detailed, quiet, comfortable, and roomy–near the top of each category, compared to rivals the full-size luxury segment. The Quattro and 8-speed automatic flawlessly add to the dynamics. The S8 is a Master of the Universe kind of car.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
