Feature Flick: 2013 Audi S8 Shows Off Its Speed

What has four doors, five seats, all-wheel drive, and can smoke a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 at the drag strip? The answer would be the 2013 Audi S8, which is featured on this week’s episode of Ignition.

As Carlos Lago demonstrates, the 2013 Audi S8 is one of the best sleepers on the market. It looks understated and dignified, but as Lago notes, its test-track acceleration numbers would match the Porsche Panamera Turbo and embarrass a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 owner.

After some time at the drag strip and on the figure eight, Lago drives the S8 in the real world to see how it performs outside of the controlled confines of a the test track. Though it exhibits some understeer, the S8 continues to impress.
