2021 S8 Exterior

Looking at the S8 next to the regular A8, it's nearly impossible to tell the two apart. Sure, the S8 gains brushed aluminum-look mirror caps, some slight massaging of the front and rear fascias and side sills, but nothing jumps out at you and shouts performance. The LED headlights in front can be joined by OLED taillights at the rear with animation that show how far this tech has come over the last generations. A panoramic sunroof is standard, but these features can be found on the regular A8 too. The most obvious sign that this is an S model is the quad-exit exhaust arrangement. Along with 21-inch wheels, the entire package is subtle and classy, but those who like for everyone to know that they're driving the fastest and best in a model line should probably look at other options.

The S8 is a big car with big dimensions. Including the mirrors, its width measures well over 80 inches, and the measurement without them is an expansive 76.6 inches. Height measures 58.6 inches while the entire car is 209 inches in length with a wheelbase of 123.2 inches. Curb weight is unsurprisingly high, with the S8 tipping the scales at a monumental 5,302 pounds.

Exterior Colors

When you're paying over $130,000 for a car, you can expect some things to be available at no extra charge. For the S8, that includes paint. 12 different shades are on offer, with Brilliant Black joined by metallic hues such as Florett Silver, Glacier White, Monsoon Gray, Moonlight Blue, Mythos Black, Navarra Blue, Seville Red, Terra Gray, and Vesuvius Gray. Also available on the palette are two pearl finishes in Daytona Gray and Savannah Beige. If you want something a little more special, you can get an exclusive special paint color mixed up, but that will cost $3,900 extra. The available Black Optic package will delete most chrome and silver accents in favor of high gloss black.
