Audi A8: First drive report

Audi A8
Interesting first drivee report here of the new Audi A8. Great looking car by the way!

Now with 372 hp and 328 pound-feet of torque (versus 350 hp and 325 pound-feet previously), the direct-injection V-8 is newly mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The combination makes the A8 a very responsive car — Audi claims a 0-to-62 mph time of 5.7 seconds — it’s just not quite as quick as the eight-cylinder BMW 7-series, Mercedes-Benz S-class, or Lexus LS460. The eight-speed gearbox helps improve fuel economy by some 13 percent; when EPA testing is complete, that increase should give the A8 mpg figures approaching those of the Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid.
