Audi S8 Plus Interior

The S8 has a very comfortable interior, which does a good job of balancing the car’s two main concepts – luxury and speed. The pedals, steering wheel and gear stick are all positioned in a similar way to a racing set-up. The cars many features are nicely laid out on the well-designed dashboard. The biggest drawback is the centre console takes up a bit too much space, and the design of the gear stick is a little strange.

Audi S8 Plus Exterior

The S8 does well to marry the design work of a luxury car and sports model. The car looks capable of high speeds as well as protective and comfortable. Against it, though, is the fact it looks very bulky and heavy. In particular, the detailing on the front end looks over-done, and detracts from the styling as a whole. The exterior may leave some feeling the S8 does not know what it wants to be.
