the best luxury sedan in the world just got quite a bit quicker.
520hp. 4.0L Turbo V8. 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. Do you know how it feels to be in a car this heavy and do 0-60 in 4.2 seconds? I still remember riding in an older S55 AMG a few years ago and feeling what a 0-60 time in the 5.5 second range and feeling like I was in hyperspeed orbit around the streets. 4.2s is a big notch faster. Looks great too, lots of presence.
When I was picking up my A3, I was waiting for some of the paperwork to get prepped—-and found myself dwelling in the showroom A8 they had, just wafting away in one of the most beautiful interiors i’ve ever sat in. It was like sitting inside of a relaxed lounge, just pass me a scotch and a cigarette and let me instruct the driver where to go.

“The best luxury sedan in the world…”
i cannot agree, man! obviously the S-Class is one of the premier contenders as it always is—but i think the A8 outdoes it in materials and elegance. The S-Class seems ‘older’, while the A8 feels up to date.
