No, we didn't drive from Santa Monica to Detroit and back at 100 mph. That would be unsafe and unlawful. But we did sample the high speed stability of the Audi A8 during a brief run on a closed course. We even turned it over to a professional driver for the test.

As you would expect from a full-size, long-wheelbase German sedan, the Audi A8 likes the ton, as The Rockers and Steve McQueen used to say. It's very steady and relaxed at speeds that will get you arrested in any of our 50 states.
