Panamera turbo engine on S8

According to German automobile media "Auto Bild" and "autoevolution"The same engine (4.0 liter V8 twin turbo) as the Porsche Panamera turbo is mounted on Audi's next type "S8" and it will also appear within the yearThat's it. Because Audi and Porsche are the same Volkswagen Group, well Well naturalism is it right? It seems that the maximum output is set to about 530 ps, ​​which is lower than 550 ps of Panamera Turbo, but it seems to be more powerful than the current S 8 engine.

Comparison of S8 and Panamera Turbo

So, I examined Audi's current S8 and compared it with Panamera Turbo.

S8plus Panamera Turbo
8-step Tiptronic AT  PDK
0 - 100 km/ h 3.8 seconds  3.6 seconds(Sports Chrono wearing)
full length(Mm) 5,145  5,049
Full width(Mm) 1,950  1,937
Total height(Mm) 1,455  1,427
Vehicle weight(kg) 2,110  2,070
Total displacement(Cc) 3,992  3,996
engine V type 8 cylinder DOHC 32 valve turbo  V type 8 cylinder twin turbo
Maximum output(Ps) 605  550
Maximum torque(Ps) 750  770
 price 20,280,000  23,770,000

The numbers are similar. By the way, in S8plus,

Matrix LED head light, sports exhaust, 21 inch genuine wheel, seat heater, seat ventilation, BOSE speaker(This is Panamera Turbo as standard equipment as well), Auto closing door, floor mat, rear sports differential, adaptive cruise control, active lane assist, park assist, Audi drive select(Auto, Comfort, Dynamic, Individual)

There are standard equipment. On the other hand, in the case of Panamera Turbo, almost all of the above equipments are optional,In the case of our Panamera turbo, more than 3 million yen as an additional optionIt took. Having said that, S8 is quite profitable.

What is the S8 run?

However, previously A3(2.0 T)When I was on board, although there was power and it was a good car, there were many subtle parts about the pleasure of running and the smoothness of driving. There was a feeling of somewhat spinning and there was a scary thing that a slight rolling feeling appeared when I skipped a little on the expressway. Therefore,Just because Panamera turbo equipped with the same engine, if we can realize ground contact feeling, high speed stability, handling etc. similar to Panamera, it may not be sounknown.

What is your husband's opinion?

I asked my husband about this news,

Well, for the S8 owner it is a Porsche engine and so on, the satisfaction level is high. There are rumors that V6 of 4S also appears in S6 and so on. But since other makers can not imitate only that riding taste and exercise performance, even if you give me about another engine, you can do it (¯ ー ¯) w

And that. I mean, what kind of thing is it ... (- _ -)

Nonetheless, if you actually release it, you definitely want to try it!
