Our first Test-drive of the 2020 Audi S8, which represents a sporty edition of the full-size luxury sedan A8, took place in the suburbs of Barcelona City, Spain, in today’s episode of Special Coverage program presented to you by our website founder Mousub Shashaa.
Before talking about this sporty version of the full-size sedan, we would like to remind you that we have already test-driven the base model A8, which competes against Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-Series.
In the beginning, Mousub talked about the length of the new German car, which was increased substantially, especially in the long-wheelbase version which became 130 mm longer and 15 mm higher compared to the previous model. But this version will be available exclusively in the Chinese and American markets. In the Middle East, the all-new 2020 S8 will be available in the ordinary wheelbase version which is 5.18 meter long.
