New Audi S8 Autobahn review 2022

March 8, 2023

Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

This is the newly-updated Audi S8, and Mat’s on a mission to see whether it has what it takes to compete with the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class!

For starters, let’s kick off with what you’ll find under the bonnet! The A8 range kicks off with a 3-litre V6, but this S8 offers a whole lot more. Right here you’ll find a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that can put down 571hp and an eye-watering 800Nm of torque!

Even if it’s pretty heavy, this luxury behemoth can still reportedly hit 60mph in just 3.8 seconds! But then again, that’s the least you’d expect from a car that comes with a starting price that’s north of £100,000…

And of course, when it comes to the interior you know you’ll be treated to high-quality materials throughout. Sure, not too much has changed compared to the previous version, but that’s no bad thing! From the dashboard upfront through to the middle seat closing mechanism in the back (trust us on this one), this is one of the most luxurious interiors around.

The only question is, is it time for people to pick the S8 over the S-Class and 7 Series? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

  1. Audi A8, Mercedes S-Class or BMW 7 Series. Which would you choose? VOTE BELOW!

  2. UK roads are too small for the long wheelbase version of this car. Nobody would buy them. At least not enough to make it practical. One more thing, do the rear windows go all the way down?

  3. Mat has the best car reviews. Did you just hit 265km/hr? In my country (Kenya) that would be flying 😂😂😂

  4. Nice car but I would not pay over £100k for a very ordinary looking car.

  5. Love the car, but those wheels just ruin everything.

  6. всё тот же комфорт со времён D3, просто в новой оболочке, в новом интерьере.

    The S8 is a super luxurious car

  8. Only 265km/h?
    Did 270 with my a8 d4 2010 4,2FSi this summer 🏎️
    I work at Mercedes but choose Audi to drive any time 😉

  9. So pre-facelift S8 was even quicker! 0-60 in 3.24 vs 3.59.

  10. It now just looks like an elongated A4

  11. why the fuck would you pay that kind of money for that kind of car just to have it limit your driving experience at every single fucking turn? absolutely fucking moronic.

  12. Audi. S8 premium plus 605hp Chip it, intake, and exhaust, Button up the turbo problem before you even start beating it. 850hp with bolt and tunes, AWD it's hooking!!!

  13. Audi🔞🔞

  14. 👏👏👏👍👍👍

    It's amazing that this car without the speed limit can go up to 344km/per our

  16. Deadly car, just saw one on the road and straight away went on youtube to check it out

  17. SHT car 🙂

  18. Should we deactivate electronic limiter

  19. So you are concerned that lack of options could be that AUDI have not forgiven' the UK for BREXIT? So good to see you are bigger than that eh? If you still have an axe to grind about BREXIT….you need to grow up Mr. Watson.

  20. coming from the mat watson channel's review of the old s8 from 2001 and wow has it come a long way and Matthew is really funny 🤣

  21. Please please please 🙏!
    v 12 750il BMW any chance to see that classic car?

  22. Are you hearing something in this car ? Perhaps the car's engine?

  23. Get your feet off of the seat back!!!! Dick move!

  24. Audi S8 Is there any question.

  25. Looks like a Toyota from years back. What is it with Audi's flat sides ??? The designers show no creativity whatsoever.

  26. SO for me all the way🙂🙂

  27. Shortlist? No Mat, you just go and buy it. This is absolutely beast car.

  28. Well I like doggy, jus saying since mat asked

  29. The new Genesis G 90 eats this Audi alive. And it will run in 10-20 years too. I work with auctions and a 10 year old Audi A8 sells for scraps and most of the time listed as “no runner” or major “mechanical defect” while a 20 year old Lexus LS works like a Swiss watch….

  30. it hurts to see a v6 in a 8er series audi

  31. It looks like if a Chinese car manufacturer made it.

    Even the Mat is cool 😂😂

  37. The S class has a problem in winter with the door handles which kills it for me as I would of gone for it , but this Audi is more than enough to impress the neighbours 🙂

  38. I am not looking at Carwow, i am looking at Mat. So funny guy.

  39. Visul bombardierilor :))

  40. Well Matt, you should not ask why so many options for the S8 are not available in the UK, you should ask yourself why the UK keeps driving on the left side of roads, requiring right seat steering wheel… A significant cost for any auto manufacturer, for a very limited market.

  41. 1200$ for this jacet …man

  42. Audi 8 all day. I hate BMW front grille
