Pierre Kaffer and Audi S8 Plus are a perfect match

Professional racing driver Pierre Kaffer was kindly asked by Audi to pose together with the brand new S8 Plus. Now it’s almost impossible to criticize Audi for not rolling out a fully-fledged RS8 because this new S8 Plus fills that role very well since it offers an unparalleled level of performance for a full-size luxury sedan.

Pierre Kaffer took the 605 hp super sedan for a spin and was obviously very impressed with the car’s brute force and its insane acceleration as the 0-100 km/h run takes a mind-blowing 3.8 seconds. Audi will electronically limit the S8 Plus to 250 km/h, but those who want to unlock the car’s full potential will be able to kindly ask Audi to raise the limiter to 305 km/h.

Power, luxury and prestige do come at a price as Audi is asking a steep €145,200 for the S8 Plus in its domestic market where it comes as standard with matrix LED headlights and 21-inch rims shod in 275/35 tires.

This “Plus” edition of the S8 serves as a last hurrah for the current generation A8 (D4) which is bound to be replaced towards the end of next year by an all-new model which will represent the very first car to be fully designed by Marc Lichte, the man in charge of Audi’s styling department.
