Audi S8 Wallpapers
The Audi S8 quattro is a high-performance version of the German luxury automaker Audi's flagship car, the full-size Audi A8. The S8 is produced at Audi's Neckarsulm 'aluminium plant', and it was introduced in September 1994. Like the A8, the S8 is only available as a four-door saloon/sedan, and both generations have been constructed from an all-aluminium monocoque, dubbed the "Audi Space Frame" (ASF), the S8 using the standard wheelbase platform, and is not available in the long-wheelbase of the A8L.
The S8, like all Audi "S" models, is fitted as standard with Audi's trademark quattro four-wheel drive (4WD), with the S8 using the Torsen-based permanent 4WD system.
The car tuning firm from Germany, Mariani have released a power and aerodynamic package for the Audi S8 V10 recently. The V10 Audi S8 engine tuning boosted the total output from 450 hp to 501 hp, an increase of 51 hp for a simple modification. Also the Mariani Audi S8 V10 comes lowered by 55-60 mm, and as you can see it doesn’t look like a car that can be daily driven. It has a stiffer chassis with the suspension upgrades, and an aftermarket exhaust system was installed that allows more flow. The prices for these upgrades have not yet been released, however there are a few more parts available.
Mariani installed a larger brake kit with red calipers on all fours, a new blacked out grille, and custom wheels. The Audi S8 V10 sits on 19 inch aftermarket wheels painted white or any color to match the car, and I must say it does look clean. We will let you know when more information about this Audi is released
