2009 Audi S8 User Reviews
- racetrack-type power;amazing braking and phenom roadholding
- scary fast at times - needs total concentration;doesn't have Mercedes posh trim
Purchased As New
I've owned Bentleys and Mercs and lots of snazzy sports cars,but the S8 Audi is the best ever. Raw speed and exceptional power at every stage...just purrs along like a big cruising cat. In wet conditions, this beauty hugs the road like a limpet - never a lurch or slide...sooooo safe! And great comfort for driver and passengers. All the back seat guys experience is the throaty roar of the 4 pipes at 70mph plus....read morehide

- Very good value, lots of power, V10, very luxurious, fast, great ride quality
- Fuel economy of a World War II battleship
I am a true Audi fan, and the S8 is one of the best German luxury cars that I know of, considering price, power, performance, ride quality, cylinders, and luxury. Being just $6,000 more expensive than the Mercedes S550, with less power, less performance, and two fewer cylinders, the S8 gives a rewarding ride. The talented S8 has great handling and ride quality, and the car gets blasted to 60mph in just 4.9 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds faster to 60mph than the Mercedes S550. Folks, you've got a 450bhp V10. That's VERY impressive! Sure, the Mercedes S600 has a 505bhp V12, but that monster is $145,000, whereas you've got the almost-as-impressive S8 for under $100,000! If you want a standard navigation system with voice recognition, a 0 to 60mph time of under 5 seconds, a whole lot of interior room, a ton of power, a V10 engine, heated leather seats, heated leather wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, satellite radio, premium surround sound, 6-disc CD changer, trip computer, tachometer, privacy glass, seat massage, power front seats, and so much more for under $100,000, the Audi S8 is a magnificent, OUTSTANDING pick out of the few full-size luxury sedans that offer as much power, luxury, and ride quality....read morehide

- WOW, what a car. Traded in my S550 4matic, not regrets.
- Missing AC seats. I had to find something to complain about.
The handling, performance and ease of the MMI system is outstanding. Loads all my contacts from my iphone for easy interface. It's like that first date with the girl you always wanted to be with.
