Spy Shots: 2012 Audi S8 undisguised

Finally spy photographers have managed to capture the 2012 Audi S8 without any cover, completely undisguised. The Audi S8 is the turbo charged variant of Audi A8 where in the engine, transmission, etc are tuned to meet racing standards.

Built on the D4 platform, 2012 Audi S8 is expected to go on sale later this year or early next year in European and American auto markets. India might not see the new S8 being officially launched as Audi India is yet to launch S lined variants of their products in the country. But if you are an avid racing enthusiast and have the money (Approx Rs 1 crores) to buy S8, you can always opt for importing via various resources.

2012 Audi S8 is the retuned version of 2011 Audi A8 which was launched last year in Europe. It was believed that Audi will be installing a V10 that would generate around 700 bhp in the new S8 but as was reported earlier, Audi has stopped manufacturing V10’s. So expect a 4.0L V8 that will generate 530 bhp to be installed in the 2012 S8.
