Time to double-down. When one turbo kit won’t get the job done, the Audi S8 doubles it with two. Yes, there are two turbocharges in this car, something that has increased the horsepower from 420 to 520. A 4.0-liter V8 with an uncanny 479 pound-feet of torque delivers a shocking 15 mpg (city) and 26 mpg (highway) with an unbelievable 3.9 second zero-to-60 clocking. 21” wheels assure that all eyes are on you, as you zoom down the road on your sport-tuned adaptive air suspension. Dazzle spectators at night with LED headlights that bode automatic high beams. The top-view camera with parking sensors assures no dings are made in your sleek exterior coat. A power trunk lid, keyless starter, and signature leather interior with diamond stitching are all desirable inclusions. Of course, the interior is immaculate, as you might expect from this marquee speed racer, with four-zone climate control, rolling Wi-Fi, collision alert system (front and rear) and a good hundred other interior and exterior amenities. The 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround sound system is certain to please you, as you make your way to that inviting bed and breakfast during a long awaited weekend with someone special.Read more Read less
