I was disapointed when I drove the A8 W12. To smooth and just felt slow.

how could it be slower, when it has more power then the 4.2?

I don't buy a car on specs, it's how the car feels.

so i always wondered... why didn't audi release the a8 w12 as an S model? The new s8 is almost identical in 0-60 times (5 sec) and power (both rated at 450hp) as the a8 w12...

Price, weigh and wheelbase. The S8 weighs approx 500lbs less than the W12 so real world performance figures should be better. I would guess somewhere between 4.5 and 4.9 0-60

I saw one a few minutes down the road from my house one time. I got all excited and my friend told me to calm down that it was only an Audi. But it was the Audi at the time.

I cruise my A8L W12 here in SoCal. No argument, it is the best car I have owned and plan to own...and I have owned many Audis with three currently owned. Any A8 is the best for that matter![hail]

2005 A8L W12
2005 A6 4.2 S-Line
2006 A6 3.2 Avant

Awaiting Delivery:

2007 S6

Silver with Ebony Interior

Will be sorry to see the Avant go, but an S6 was to hard to resist.
