A New Power Player // Audi S8 Plus on XO Luxury XF1

IMG_9458

The beefed up version of the Audi A8, the S8 Plus demands some serious respect with a engine and horsepower likeliness of the coveted RS7. The simple question between the two is: sedan or hatchback? Starting in 2016, the standard 520-hp S8 is being replaced by the S8 Plus which boasts a 4.0L V8 capable of 605-hp. The S8 Plus is no sedan to scoff at: it’s 0 to 60 times bested many of the cars in it’s class – such as the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, BMW M5, Cadillac CTS-V, BMW M6, Porsche Panamera Turbo S, Dodge Charger Hellcat- including beating the RS7 by .1 of a second in Car & Driver’s testing. The S8 Plus came to shake things up, and it is certainly Audi’s new power player.

This S8 Plus is fitted with a Dynamic Package, Black Optic Package, and Driver Assistance Package

While priced around the same mark as the RS7, the S8 Plus offers up some serious additions. One such addition is a high-end Dynamic Package fitted with a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, ceramic brakes, top speed limiter increase, and sport exhaust with black tips.

Recently, one of our top clients came into possession of a gorgeous Daytona Gray Pearl over Lunar Silver 2017 S8 Plus, and like always, chose to fit it with the Naples Speed treatment. Complementing the Black Optic Package on the car, he opted for a set of 22″ flow-formed XO Luxury XF1 wheels in Onyx (black) wrapped in low-profile 295/25 Pirelli PZero Nero rubber. The result was one of the hottest and well-liked vehicles we’ve ever done.
