Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, November 17, 2019 – Audi Abu Dhabi and Al Ain are offering customers the opportunity to be among the first in the region to get their hands on the highly anticipated new Audi S8, as it arrives in showrooms across the Emirate.

Delivering exhilarating performance in the Luxury Class, the new Audi S8 TFSI quattro 2020 model provides luxurious comfort, sporty elegance, spacious interior, and innovative assistance and suspension systems, setting a new standard for large Sedans in the Middle East.

Combining progressive luxury with dynamic athleticism, the Audi S8 comes with bold interior and exterior design elements. Details on the front bumper, side sills, and the exterior mirror housings, as well as the two S-typical twin exhaust tailpipes emphasize the car’s sporty and progressive character.

Featuring a full leather package including Merlot Red Valcona leather interior, sporty front contour comfort seats and steering wheel, plus 21 inch cast alloy wheels, panoramic glass sunroof and many more features as standard, the new Audi S8 is designed to excite those seeking style and performance. Plus, exclusive to Audi Abu Dhabi and Al Ain all S8 models come with Audis Exclusive Black Styling Package. Customers also have the option to customize the exterior and interior to suit their personal preferences, adding another level of sophistication.

The unique combination of innovative suspension components enables this flagship to cover the entire range from the smooth cruising of a luxury sedan to the dynamically taut handling of a sports car, depending on the preference and needs of the driver.

The high-performance powerplant in the Audi S8 offers not only maximum smoothness, but also high sports performace with an output of 571 hp, 800 Nm of torque and two turbochargers. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h and 0-100 km/h is achieved in only 3.8 seconds. Iron-lined cylinder barrels in the aluminum crankcase reduce friction for exceptionally smooth running, while automatically actuated flaps in the exhaust system underscore the impressive sound.

The predictive active suspension, dynamic-all-wheel steering, and quattro drive with standard sport differential, ensures outstanding vehicle dynamics straight from the factory.

“We are thrilled to be the first dealership in the region to have the new Audi S8 in our showroom. We know there is a strong appetite for luxury and performance in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, demonstrated by our success with the A8 last year, and the new Audi S8 flagship with its superior performance and sporty high quality design sets a new standard for luxury in the UAE,” commented Mark Austin, General Manager at Audi Ali & Sons.

“We have an ongoing commitment to deliver the very best products and services in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, and the opportunity to be among the first in the region to take delivery of the new Audi S8 is a testament to this commitment.”

UAE customers can choose the optional high-performance carbon-fiber ceramic brake discs with a diameter of 420 millimeters at the front axle and 370 millimeters at the rear axle. The ceramic brakes are internally ventilated, low-wearing and including the calipers are 9.6 kilograms lighter than cast iron discs. Each of the front calipers has ten pistons.
