Made from lightweight aluminum alloy, the 3.0-liter TFSI® supercharged V6 engine features direct injection technology to help produce 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Power delivery is linear, and the broad range of torque helps the Audi A8 L get up to speed in smooth fashion.
Eight-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission
Working in tandem with the TFSI® engine, the Tiptronic® transmission in the Audi A8 L uses eight gears to get you smoothly off the line. And when you demand more, the transmission will shift to find the proper gear for the situation, be it for passing or relaxed cruising.
Find the A8 that suits you.
2018 Audi A8 L 4.0T Sport Engineering
Two turbos propel you past the third dimension.
Beyond length, width and height is the fourth dimension: time. With 450 hp and 444 lb-ft of torque, you may approach that fourth dimension sooner than usual. Equipped with an Audi adaptive air suspension for both comfort and control and an eight-speed Tiptronic® transmission for smooth, intuitive response to your demands, you’ll find the Audi A8 L 4.0T Sport can make short work of long stretches.
4.0-liter TFSI® turbocharged V8 engine
We placed the turbochargers within the “V” of the 4.0-liter V8 to create a shorter route for the air to enter the intake manifold, helping reduce turbo lag and improving throttle response. Continuously variable intake and exhaust camshafts adjust to the demands of the driving situation.

Audi drive select—Comfort mode
Comfort mode favors a softer suspension and boosted steering power assistance that is ideal for long-distance travel.
Audi drive select—Auto mode
Auto mode provides the most balanced engine and chassis response.
Audi drive select—Dynamic mode
Dynamic mode provides the best engine and chassis settings for performance driving conditions. The suspension is optimized for handling and body control, the steering is heavier for a more direct feel and the transmission shift program is tuned for immediate response.
2018 Audi S8 plus
With 605 hp, the balance of power can shift in your favor.
There has never been an Audi S8 as powerful as the S8 plus. Its 605 hp rating even surpasses competitors with larger engines. By tuning the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter TFSI® V8 to new heights, we helped ensure its status as the major power broker.

4.0-liter TFSI® turbocharged V8 engine
The twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter TFSI® V8 utilizes direct injection technology and continuously variable intake and exhaust camshaft adjustments to create power. An overboost function can increase torque from 517 lb-ft to 553 lb-ft when Audi drive select is in the Dynamic mode.
Sport-tuned Audi adaptive air suspension
The innovative Audi adaptive air suspension has been retuned to suit the elevated performance of the Audi S8 plus. The settings of the air springs and dampers are firmer to help deliver a higher level of handling and control.
Audi dynamic steering
The standard dynamic steering system offers a variable ratio that adjusts according to vehicle speeds and Audi drive select mode. By changing the steering ratio, dynamic steering can improve straight-line stability at highway speeds and improve steering precision through the corners.
mph, top-speed limiter 
For the highest level of braking performance, the Dynamic package includes Audi ceramic brakes with Anthracite Gray calipers and a top-speed limiter raised to 190 mph.
