    In the Autoblog Garage: 2007 Audi S8

    This edition of "In the Autoblog Garage" is brought to you by the letter S and the number 8. Alone, each is just another mundane alphanumeric character. When positioned next to each other on a vehicle bearing Audi's interlocking rings, however, they turn into something very special. The character pair becomes shorthand for 5.2 liters, 10 cylinders, 450 horses, 398 ft.-lbs., 4.9 seconds, 155 miles per hour, and $110,000+ in the case of the Daytona Grey Audi S8 tester that had been deposited in my driveway. Yep, it was going to be a pretty good week.

    I had an S8 (old body style) for a while and wow, what a rocket!!!! That was one of the best cars I have ever driven in my life. I'd love to get my hands on a new one. They are even better now. The old one had some quicks (electrical issues galore) and missing goodies (like no auto headlights on a $90k sedan), but all in all it was a great car and the best sedan ever.

    Gorgeous and the interior is just spectacular. I can't imagine I'd take an S-Class or 7 series over this. Audi's lineup has become quite formidable.

    2010 Ford Fusion Sport AWD
    2000 Ford SVT Contour
    1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

    The Past:
    2007 Lincoln MKZ
    1997 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
    1995 BMW 530i
    1998 Olds Aurora
    1994 Infiniti Q45t

    This car blows both the 7 series and S class out of the water. I've driven all of them and they fail in comparision to this sleeper street rocket. This thing weighs as much as a small sports coupe due to its space age, extra light weight frame. Mine had the V8 which was more then fun. I can't even imagine a Lambo V10!!!!!!! It has the looks and seating of a 4 door sedan yet drives like some of the most expensive 2 door sports cars out there.
