Admittedly, the one at Stoke has almost every optional extra in the spec. But still would rather have a 55, or even a 50. It just doesn't seem elevated above the rest of the range enough, to justify the price difference. Maybe if they used the V8 tdi from the SQ7/8 models, it would make more sense?
77k for a coal burner
The new S8 looks lovelyWhy produce a vehicle for a diminishing market, to the public diesels are in free fall and dead in the water..
They can produce a S8 with a petrol engine so why not any other of the S cars https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/audi/s8/107274/new-flagship-audi-s8-revealed-with-563bhp and the other german manufacturers are still focusing on petrol.
Plus Audi's track record it shows they've not learned from the diesel scandal https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/industry/audi-accused-using-four-defeat-devices-v6-diesel
Maybe. How sneaky. Seems to me they dont want people going for the cheaper and in many peoples eyes more desirable 55tfsi s line.The S6 TDi is now available in the Audi UK configurator. What is no longer available by the look of it, is the 55TFSi engine.
Maybe it's only going to be available in the Vorsprung Edition when it's out?
It certainly does and that is strange, as the electric compressor is supposed to reduce lag.
Ok so I speced up one of these on car wow And was offered 13k or 20percent discount already.
A 50tdi black edition was giving me 23 percent. Personally I prefer the black edition looks. Standard s alloys are quite rubbish, worse than sline imo.
It’s a lot of extra money but you do get adaptive suspension, tech pack and much better Seats thrown in. Reviews suggest it’s much better round corners too. Not sure why?
With these discounts I am not discounting the car as it may suite my needs for a big luxury family car with occasional fun round twisties.
However, I am going to wait to see if the m550i turns up with its petrol v8. Will it get simikar discounts? How will pcp and leases look? All important questions in real world.
