2012 Audi S8 to be Powered by a 520-HP Turbocharged V8

Audi has yet to release the sportiest version of the A8, the S8, but we’re now getting reports about what will be under the hood of the S8.

The 2012 S8 is going to ditch the 5.2L V10 from the last generation and will instead be powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 that will put out 520 horsepower.

The next-gen Audi S8 will debut in 2012 with a price tag over $100,000 and will compete with the Maserati Quattroporte, Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG and Porsche Panamera.
