Give All of Your Superlatives to the 2013 Audi S8; It's That Good

By Jacob Brown | November 05, 2012
Think of all the sedans sold today that are quicker than a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. How many do you have, a handful? Not even that? Hopefully, the 2013 Audi S8 was on your short list. With 520 horsepower and the better part of two and a half tons to haul around, you might not think it'd be sports car hunting so much as just pretty darn quick. But its all-wheel-drive system puts its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 to use quickly, rocketing the Audi S8 to 60 mph in an astounding 3.5 seconds. More than that, the Audi S8 is a supremely comfortable luxury car, with all the amenities befitting of a $125,000 luxury sedan. It's an executive-class rocket, a matching car for your Gulfstream G650. As my favorite dubbed-over German car show said when I was growing up, it's a wolf in sheep's clothing.
