2008 Audi S8 5.2 V10 FSI Quattro

Highlights

  • 5.2-litre V10 engine producing a claimed 444 horsepower
  • Recently refurbished alloy wheels
  • Loaded with factory optional extras including ceramic brakes

The Appeal

 V10 engines are normally only to be experienced in supercars like the Lamborghini Gallardo which it shares this powerful engine with is all well and good until you need to carry passengers, traverse potholed roads and actually get in and out of it.
The answer then, is the Audi S8. With a monstrous V10 engine lurking beneath an otherwise unassuming 4-door saloon body. This may well be the ultimate Q car.
This 2008 face-lifted example has evidently been cared for throughout its life and is presented really well. If you’re after a real driver’s car but need everyday practicality, this Audi is definitely one to consider.
