It was only yesterday when we talked about the upcoming Audi RS6 and now there are rumors of a possible S8 model that will get a Bentley-sourced 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo that will output 520 hp (527 PS / 388 kW). If this information turns out to be true, the new Audi S8 will be slotted below the Mercedes S63 AMG – 537 hp (544 PS / 400 kW) and above the BMW B7 Alpina – 500 hp (507 PS / 373 kW).

The car should be launched in the United States at the beginning of next year. Stay tuned for more information.
