Z u see the power limousine is also on the Facebook page of the Audi Forum Neckarsulm. The RS8 is based on the fourth generation of the S8, which was launched in 2013 and is still the top model in the series today. Designed as a pure innovation vehicle, the sportiest version of the luxury-class sedan never went into production. It's a shame, one can say, because the design and equipment are typically RS spectacular and give the luxury sedan its very own character. The RS8 would certainly have had fans. Now he is at least allowed into a public showroom.

The front air inlets are huge, the wheel arches fill 21-inch wheels behind which a ceramic brake system with yellow-painted brake calipers is mounted. The interior is adorned with numerous carbon applications and a mix of leather and Alcantara with orange stitching. The Lamborghini-style start-stop switch for the engine is centrally located in the center console.
