As a former BMW M5 and 7-Series owner I have
to say that the Audi S8 tops them both.
The S8 delivers the comfort of the 7-Series
with the all-out performance of the M5
(but without the cramped cabin). The
ride is stff but not harsh and the
lightness of the aluminum body and
suspension makes it feel like a much
smaller car than it is. Nimble like a
sports car, yet with plenty of leg
room and a humongous trunk, the S8
gets my vote for the best high-end
sports sedan of all time.
The engine and the melodious throaty
sound it makes. I'd rather listen to
the engine than the awesome sound
