In early 2013, Ingolstadt likewise confirmed it will introduce more RS models starting with the RS7. Quick forward to 2015 and the RS8 is still a secret, which implies it’s about time we start speculating a bit about this future sports high-end sedan. That Audi has yet to confirm the RS8 isn’t really at all surprising, as it is likely we will not see it in car dealerships till the next-generation A8 gets here. With the full-size sedan set to go on sale for 2017 model year, the RS8 won’t be here until the 2018 model year.

For the interior, Audi will try to combine high-end with a severe sporty feeling.

2018 Audi RS8 Engine
The engine to be utilized in the 2018 Audi RS8 is still a secret; still, I can think quite properly on that. Currently, the most effective A8– the S8– is powered by a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 engine with an output of 520 horse power and 481 pound-feet of torque, implying that the RS8 variation has to deliver a little bit more. There’s likewise the possibility of Audi dropping a Bentley-sourced, twin-turbo W-12 engine under the RS8’s hood. This powerplant motivates both the Continental and the Flying Spur, producing up to 616 horses and 590 pound-feet of twist in the 2016 Continental GT Speed.

The 2018 Audi RS8 need to make its debut soon. It will get here on the marketplace late this year or early next, as a 2018 model.
