2007 Audi S8 quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (5.2L 10cyl 6A)

Review

After 3 years in a Porsche 911 Carrera S, I decided I'd been battered & deafened long enough. The S8 is the perfect replacement - a coddling, comforting living room when you need peace and quiet. But when you need to scream, it will gladly scream for you. The baritone bark of the V10 is unrivaled by any other luxury sedan, and the acceleration is phenomenal, with quick "whomp whomps" of the paddle shifted transmission. Yet, unlike the 911, the S8 feels utterly stable -- no wiggly sense of instability or choppiness. On the highway, it is impeccable, quiet, yet ready to blast into triple digits at a moment's notice. It is subtle looking, yes, but people still notice it due to rarity.

Favorite Features

Intoxicating power and sound from the V10. Adaptive headlights, infrared-sensing locking that unlocks the car for you as you reach for the door handle. Spacious, supremely comfortable and achingly beautiful interior. AWD and height- adjustable suspension for deeper snow. Incomparable B&O sound.

Suggested Improvements

The pop-up MMI screen is neat, but a little jerky in operation. Small side mirrors make rearward vision a bit tough. Long front end takes some getting used to -- but then, I'm coming out of a Porsche 911.
