We cannot see why Audi would give up on their signature grille but this is exactly what happened when we saw the 2018 Audi S8.
Of course the 2018 Audi S8 was covered up heavily and so it might be that the grille had been left off intentionally just to confuse people. There really isn’t a great deal to see in the spy photos as Audi had done such a great job of covering it up.
We do think that when the 2018 Audi S8 comes our way it may have the V6 2 litre engine and this should give 440 horses. However bear in mind that the S8 that is out at the moment offers 520 horses to 600 horses if you go for the Performance version, so 440 horses on the S8 wouldn’t be anything special.
We are expecting the Audi S8 to come out next year, later on during the year, but would you be interested if the vehicle only came offering 440 horses?
