If you’re thinking the Audi S8 Plus is a good car but it just doesn’t have enough power, you should first be fitted for a straight-jacket. After that, though, we have just the car for you. This ABT-tuned Audi S8 Plus develops a monstrous 705 hp, up from the already incredible 605 hp. That’s just gluttonous. Beautiful and wonderful, but gluttonous. With torque bumped up to 619 lb-ft, the ABT Audi S8 Plus is capable of 0-60 mph in under 3.5 seconds, which is frankly ridiculous.
However, it isn’t all just pure speed. ABT fitted a new, height-adjustable coilover suspension to the S8 Plus, capable of dropping the ride height up to 25 millimeters. This ABT level-control suspension not only lowers the car and makes it handle better, but it also insures that the same luxurious Audi S8 ride quality remains. ABT also fitted a new exhaust system with typical four-pipe design that gives the S8 an extra edge, in terms of sound.
The Audi S8 Plus is not a slow car by any stretch of the imagination. It’s the sort of car that eats supercars for lunch while it chauffeurs important passengers in perfect comfort and luxury. However, ABT went and turned it into an absolute monster and we love it. 705 hp is ridiculous but that doesn’t mean we don’t want it. Check it out at ABT’s site.
