Audi A8, Audi S8: New engine details

Audi A8

Here are even more details about the new engine for the Audi A8.

A 2.8 V6 FSI petrol motor has been introduced to make progress cleaner and more economical, so if diesel's not the oil in your lamp but you still crave the tax and conscience breaks of a low CO2 motor, this might be the solution to your big saloon woes.

This new entry-level A8 averages 34mpg, a figure more akin to a diesel. And it's cleaner too, with only 199g/km of CO2.

The 210bhp engine pushes the big A8 to 62mph in eight seconds flat, but the chances are you won't have bought this to shred tyres; its 207lb ft of torque should be ample to pull you around town in an effortless waft.
