A Power and Performance Boost Has Drivers hoping for a Quick 2016 Audi S8 Plus North American Release Date

2016 Audi S8 Plus North American Release Date

The power of the Audi S8 has always been well appreciated, but Audi now taking things a step further by introducing the new S8 Plus. The model brings a boost in power and performance, but will there be a 2016 Audi S8 Plus North American release date?

As of now, there is no specified time of arrival for the S8 Plus in North America, either in Canada or the United States. Availability on this side of the Atlantic has certainly not been ruled out, however, so we will just have to wait for more information to be made available on the model's release date.

Audi has said the new S8 Plus is the highest powered sport sedan in the premium segment, and that's saying something. The new model features the 4.0 TFSI engine that puts out 605 horsepower and 553.2 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is paired to an 8-speed tiptronic that distributes power to the quattro drivetrain with a sport differential.

With power like this, the 2016 Audi S8 Plus is able to achieve the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. It also has an impressive top speed of 305 km/h, which equates to 189.5 mph.

The swiftness of the S8 Plus can also be attributed to its lightweight design. Made almost entirely of aluminum, the body takes styling notes from the Audi Space Frame and comes in at just 231 kg, or 509.27 lbs. Other highlights of the model include adaptive air suspension sport and dynamic steering.

Though we still await more details on the 2016 Audi S8 Plus North American release date and specs, the model in Germany will come with 21-inch wheels. We can only hope to see all of these features sometime soon here in Canada. For future news, stay tuned to the Audi Royal Oak blog.
