Coinciding with the announcement of the updated 2015 A8 at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit is presentation of the 2015 S8. The performance flagship sedan from the four-ringed brand receives similar updates as its less sporty variant, and features an updated exterior design that further compliments its exceptional performance, a new interior trim choice, and an optional sport exhaust system.
The updated design of the front fascia features larger air intakes in the lower bumper and dials back the use of chrome accents, giving the full-size sport-luxury sedan a sportier look. By default, the 2015 S8 continues to offer four oval exhaust pipes in the back, but a new optional sport exhaust turns those ovals into an even wider four tailpipes, allowing passengers to audibly experience the powerful drivetrain. The sport exhaust also adds a new rear diffuser and side sills. Rounding out the exterior changes are updates to the headlamps and taillamps.
Inside, the updated S8 combines Vermont brown leather, paired with Carbon twill copper inlays to portray the model’s sporty yet elegant character…. because if the S8 is anything, it’s elegantly sporty.
