The German automaker equipped the new S8 with a 4.0-liter  twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 563 hp and a torque of 590 lb-ft (800 Nm). The engine of this new model goes beyond being just powerful.

2020 Audi S8 comes with Audi's Quattro ultra-all-wheel drive system enhanced with a sport differential. It also has an all-wheel steering system offered as standard to boost mobility when it's running at a low speed and offer better stability when at a high speed. Available as an optional feature are carbon ceramic brakes which have a disc that measures 16.5-inch up front and 14.6-inch at the back.

2. Other upgrades in 2020 Audi S8

Among other S8 model lineups, the 2020 Audi S8 is adjudged to be the fastest. Not that the auto manufacturer made any adjustments to the new model, it is furnished with a predictive active suspension offered as standard. With this system, the body roll of the S8 is restricted when it's taking a bend quite hard to 2.5 degrees. For the comfort mode, the body roll gets to be about 5 degrees. The trick suspension technology fitted into the model is able to lift and lower each of the wheels separately to offer the smoothest ride. There are the Forward-facing cameras that are also installed to help spot potholes and change the suspension as a precautionary measure.

The interior is adorned in matte aluminum trim together with a diamond-stitched seat that has the S badge embroidered. Inside the cabin, you'll find an upper inlay made of carbon vector. Just as seen in some Audi models, it has the Audi Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster, touchscreen infotainment system, and touchscreen climate control functions.
