Competition

2018 Audi S8 vs the competition

2018 BMW M760i xDrive -- The fresh generation of the 7 Series is sensational, and this upcoming model makes the most of those great bones with 610 hp, plus all the suspension and luxury features appropriate for a high-performance flagship sedan.

2018 Jaguar XJR575 -- The XJR is a little short on power compared to the S8 Plus (575 hp from a supercharged V8) and rear-drive only, but it comes with a distinct ambiance, style, and driving character.

2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- In a straight line, few cars can touch the big S (especially the AMG versions).

2018 Porsche Panamera -- Available as a sleek sportback or a wagon, you should give the Panamera a shot. It's arguably the most athletic big luxury car on the road today.

Used Bentley Flying Spur -- The Spur is slower to 60 mph than the S8 plus, but it enjoys 616 hp and a superb hand-crafted cabin.
