AUDI ALSO UNVEILED THE NEW S8 AT TOKYO ENDOWING THE A8 RANGE WITH A second high-power motor: the W-12 that has been out for a year or so and now the 5.2-liter, Gallardo-derived, direct injection V-10 of the S8. However the A8 has always been a bit of an uninspiring drive and it is difficult to get excited about the S8 in spite of the engine and a slightly firmer suspension.

The real subject of interest is the installation of the Gallardo motor, detuned as it is, in an Audi that all but confirms the theory that it would show up in the new RS6. And with the competition (i.e. M5) weighing in with 500 hp, we can only assume the V-10 will be retuned for the RS6. That makes all this S8 business much more exciting.
