2009 Audi S8 Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Audi S8

  • The most dramatic distinction ... is under the hood, where Audi has installed its first-ever V-10 engine, adapted from the one in corporate sibling Lamborghini's Gallardo.

    - Automobile
  • The Audi S8 is an extremely fast, hard-accelerating luxury sedan that exhibits none of the ride and comfort compromises that too often limit the appeal of more hardcore sport sedans, such as Audi's own compact RS 4.

What reviewers liked least about the Audi S8

  • Not so smart, however, is the S8's keyless ignition system, and its faults extend to all manufacturers who seem unable to resist this unnecessary technology.

Audi S8 Comparisons

  • It isn't the eye-widening, fingers-tightening-on-the-steering-wheel explosive rocket shot of an AMG Mercedes or an M-division BMW, but it is unmistakably faster than a standard A8.

    - Automobile
  • There is an indefinable blend of power, weighting and tactile sensations - particularly in the steering and suspension systems - that makes the S8 a totally different driving experience than the big German and Japanese sedans in its price category.
