Pre-facelift Audi A8 4.2 V8 tuned to 397 PS

The Audi A8 4.2 V8 pre-facelift has received an upgrade program from Senner Tuning. Naturally, work started on the 4.2-liter V8 FSI engine which we remind you that in stock configuration it develops 372 PS at 6,800 rpm and a maximum torque of 445 Nm at 3,500 rpm. The model runs the 0-100 km/h sprint in 5.7 seconds and has a 250 km/h electronically-limited top speed. Senner was able to bump output of the eight-cylinder engine to 397 PS and 477 Nm.

The additional power was achieved by installing a stainless steel exhaust system featuring 100mm end pipes, along with a power converter and new sports air filters. Aside from packing more punch, the Audi A8 4.2 V8 seen here is also more efficient as Senner Tuning says fuel consumption has been diminished by 1.5 – to 2.0 liters / 100 km.

Additional modifications were made such as the 22-inch Oxigin14 Oxrock wheels shod in 265/30 R22 Continental Sport Contact 3. Also on the menu red brake calipers, LED number plate lighting and a KW lowering kit for the A8’s air suspension which also comes with a Wi-Fi module giving the possibility to the owners to control the air suspension through an app developed for iOS.

Senner Tuning says all these upgrades are available for €9,500.
