The Audi S8 2012 – First Drive
The Bentley and Audi have developed the latest V-8, the compact dual-turbo 4.0 ltr that may automatically exchange into the fuel-saving four-cylinder style. The only visible visual variation between 2012 Audi S8s installed with the latest engine as well as the obsolete models are 4 small microphones for car’s ANC system, as well as the horizontal bar chart between the speedo and tach to showing to driver at what time the huge sedan is operating in the V-8 or V-4 style.
I drove the Bentley’s Mulsanne by its cylinder disabling system in year 2011; therefore, I was conspiracy to look that how the Audi’s faired. The Bentley does not bother with the chart informing the driver that he is in eco style, as well as I honestly found the Audi’s slightly disturbing.

Eventually, I presume you that either get used to this or else just pay no attention to green line flashing right and left like engine dips in as well as beyond V-4/V-8 style. However, the brief twelve-mile drive via Ingolstadt’s outer edges, I was deliberately chasing for that exchange spot amid V-4 and V-8 as well as found it exasperatingly hard to sustain the green setting of V-4. Passing by my experience of Bentley I think the high-speed thruway cruising will find you easily slipping into the V-4 styles as miles cruised with.
In Bentley, I can’t tell you if its 6.75-liter V-8 running on the all 8 or just 4 cylinders. The similar is not very true for S8’s 4.-liter; and there is right change in the exhaust beat like the engine douses from 8 to 4 cylinders; perhaps I was much aware of this because I reserved looking for that exchange point. To make sure the smooth running like a V-4 exchangeable electronic dynamic engine rises are applied on Audi for first time, whereas ANC in a cabin disguises every intrusive engine sound.

I’ll reserve my last judgment on S8 in anticipation of I’ve spend more era driving engine. The one object is certainly: by VW announcing the same system for four-cylinder engines, the cylinder disabling is there to continue.
For the proof, the V-8 4.0-liter will look duty in the Audi’s S6, S7 Sportback, by 420 bhp, S6 Avant, that power augmented to 520. The V-8 will as well appear in the sole Bentley Continental GT planned to be exposed at Detroit show in the January.
The Audi says that the cylinder disabling reduces Audi says the cylinder deactivation decreases fuel use in European NEDC check cycle, with approximately five percent. In addition, noteworthy: At fifty mph, the Audi says that the entire S models by this type of engine have a twelve percent increase in the efficiency. On 80 mph, the fuel reserve is supposed to be seven percent. Mr. Michael Dick, the Audi’s chief of technical development, he says that the US drivers might see fuel reserve as lofty as 1.5% compared with outgoing engines.
