Out of town and rocketing down a narrow, twisting German B-road, the 2008 Audi A8 has a way of feeling smaller than it actually is. This is a monumental achievement when you consider we’re talking about one of the largest four-door sedans on the road. In “L” trim, the A8 checks in at a monumental 204.4 inches long and 74.6 inches wide, not counting the mirrors.
No matter how good the steering and suspension might be, there’s nothing like standing on the loud pedal and letting ‘er rip. The 4.2-liter V8’s eight cylinders hammer hard, while twin turbochargers help sink your skull back into the headrest with the swell of torque starting from just 1,600 rpm.
The 2008 Audi A8 isn’t cheap, but we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: The Audi A8 is as good as cars get.
