2013 Audi S8 vs 2013 BMW Alpina B7

Guess I'm bias because I have the 7 but Audi really upped their game with the S8 in terms of performance, 3.5secs is pretty nuts but not sure about the styling tho.

I love the styling of the previous D3 A8/S8. I'm not a huge fan of the grill, but their efforts in keeping weight down and cranking up the performance is unrivaled. I still prefer the interior of the Audi overall, especially in the D-class segment (7/S/A8).

O/T: a 2010 S8 with a v10 Gallardo engine is priced very attractively right now

The Jaguar XJ Supercharged/Supersport is pretty light as well for a full size long wheelbase car and is supposed to be decent to drive too. Gotta love the classy yet unique interior and exterior style, makes the germans look bland.

Yup, the Jag has an all aluminum frame/body, the next gen 7 series will have the same.

The interior of the S8 looks so nice. I would have loved if Audi made the S8 a bit more aggressive but imo they're playing it way too safe with the overall design for to really go up against BMW and Mercedes.

A7>A8 imo (terms of looks)

between these two i give it to the Alpina or maybe that's just because i like the paint



just to add they need to make a new Transporter movie

I thought I'd like the Alpina more but Audi has been on a roll lately.

Interior feel of audi vehicles are always mindblowing, the sharpness of the instruments, the feel of the seats and the steering wheel
Was it the S8 that still has a W12?
