Default Faster than a Corvette Z06: 2013 Audi S8 Struts Its Stuff on Ignition

So you watched the Audi S8 compete against the BMW 7 Series-based Alpina B7 on Head 2 Head; now you can watch the Audi S8 strut its stuff at the test track on the latest episode of Ignition.

As Carlos Lago demonstrates, the 2013 Audi S8 is one of the best sleepers on the market. It looks understated and dignified, but as Lago notes, its test-track acceleration numbers would match the Porsche Panamera Turbo and embarrass a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 owner.

After some time at the drag strip and on the figure eight, Lago drives the S8 in the real world to see how it performs outside of the controlled confines of a the test track. Though it exhibits some understeer, the S8 continues to impress.

Check out the latest episode of Ignition for yourself below.
