This car is great for people searching for a luxury sedan, but without sacrificing the speed and agility of a sports car. This car doez 0-60 in a whopping 3.5 seconds (as I tested with mine.). It even has launch control, you hold the traction control button for 10 seconds. Put it into sport mode and there you go doing 0-60 in 3.5 seconds give or take. It is an amazing car for the money and with great used examples going for around $55-75K, it is great buy. Although mine had an issue with the camshaft valve, it had to be replaced and cost $2,274! I am not sure if this is a common issue or I just drove mine hard but, the manager at my local Audi dealership said they have had some others S8s with this issue before. Another minor concern is cooling, the grille looks big but only half is functional, the other half is just blocked.
