Are these the first spy shots of the new Audi S8 caught during winter testing?
Do we know for sure that this is an S8? Not really, as our shooters never did get a peek under the hood.
But this car does have a few signs of possible “S-ness”. Note the quad pipes in back and the sizable brake rotors lurking under those blacked out wheels. The tires are obviously “Arctic spec,” so they don’t add anything to the story.
Hard to tell which engine this big sedan will use. Some speculation says it will a version of the twin-turbo V10 currently used in the RS6. With nearly 600 horsepower, it would surely do the job.
