You perhaps cannot image Audi offering up a vehicle that doesn’t have the honeycomb grille. However we have seen what we think is the 2018 Audi S8 and it doesn’t offer the grille.
Bear in mind that the 2018 Audi S8 that we saw was heavily covered up as this was a test model and some people believe that the missing grille could be just to hide the vehicle.
We didn’t see such a great deal of the Audi S8 in testing as it was very well covered up. However it is thought that when the vehicle does make its way out it may arrive without the 4 litre engine.
There has been some talk that the 2018 Audi S8 may come with the V6 2 litre engine and this could offer up 440 horses. While this isn’t too bad you do have to take into account that the S8 that is out at the moment offers up 520 horses, while the Performance version offers up 600 horses. So people might not be too happy to see 440 horses.
We believe that the 2018 Audi S8 could be coming out later on next year, but would you buy it if it was less powerful than the version out on the market right now?
