Don't anticipate the the new S8 in the states until 2006. Last indications that I have heard is the 2006 model will have a modfied Lamorgini v10 engine that will produce 500Hp (needs to compete with the 2005 BMW M5). Talk to your A8 rep, they may have more definative information. Price is going to be approx $125,000 in the US.

Well, I guess Byra you may wish to read more....

Motor Trend Mag. March 29th, 2005: "First Test: 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton W12"
..."For rabid, financially able enthusiasts, the Lambo-V-10-powered 2005 Audi S8 is the supersedan to wait for."

Per my uncle, who is a finance director for Audi in Germany, has confirmed the S8 will once again be available on US shores, however there are delays and the arrival time my not be until late 2006.

the Robb Report did a nice article on it. the rear seats have recline and massage, you can also get a mini wine cooler too. sorry, didn't save the magazine but do remember it was $100 G's.
