Best Sedan I Have Ever Owned

I have owned my 2020 S8 for about one month so far. Coming from the previous general A8. I have owned S-class & BMW's. I can't tell you how fun this machine is to drive. It hauls butt like nothing else. It is like having a supercar in the comfort of a luxury sedan. Sure, it's big and isn't flat around corners, but for it's size, it handles the road well. Get it on the freeway, mash the accelerator and you are off like a rocket. And it sounds tough too, without being too loud. There just aren't many cars on the road that can keep up. Audi say 0-60 is 3.8, but R&T says 3.2. The suspension is tight in dynamic mode and does a great job of eliminating the bumps in comfort+ mode. Overall, the suspension does a great job of keeping the car planted and keeping the ride comfortable. The interior is a huge upgrade from the previous generation. Once you get to know the system, it is thought out and works well. I looked at a 911, but the comfort of the seats and spaciousness of the cabin won me over. I haven't looked back since. If you are considering an S-class or BMW, or even an A8, I highly suggest you test drive an S8. It will change your commute into a joy.

S8 - A classic V8

My '21 S8 is quick, smooth and sporty and at the same time elegant, roomy and comfortable. So you get the benefits of both performance and luxury. Sometimes that's a tough balancing act but Audi found the sweet spot with the S8. Originally I had planned on replacing my '09 A8 with a new A8 turbo and found out Audi discontinued that engine option for the vehicle in '23. As a result, I had planned to order a '23 S8 with the V8 turbo and then have a long wait to get the car. In spite of this world of low inventory, my local Audi dealer found a low mileage '21 S8. The car is pristine and amazing to drive. The style, the trim and the technology are all world class. I entitled my review classic V8 because as we transition to an electric world it looks like V8s are going to be one of the first casualties. So I concluded now was the time to buy one as later model S8s are hard to find. Glad I made the move!

A scientific marvel! At first it seemed so much larger and technologically intimidating than my previous gen S8 I felt dwarfed. However after a few days becoming acclimated we bonded. Whether driving, or being driven in one of the safest, most comfortable automobiles on the road you are completely insulated. I've owned/own numerous exotics and performance sedans. This car is a bargain.
