Audi S8 1998 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Audi S8 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Audi RS8 - Will we ever see an ultimate performance version of the A8?

    (They did do this)

    While a one-off RS8 prototype of the previous-generation (D4 series) A8 was created in 2013, it never went into production, as we understand there just wasn't enough demand for that sort of high-performance internal-combustion engined limousine.

    Tesla's successful Model S, on the other hand, has demonstrated the viability of an electrically powered large-sedan flagship, and so with Audi going down that path with the help of Porsche with its e-tron GT series, it is unlikely that we will see anything racier than an S8.

    We hope this helps.
