£67000 without options. It has the option of Alcantara, electric rear headrests, rear blind - so probably nearly £70k or £105 000 if adjusted for inflation. Audi were rumoured to have made no profit on the A8/S8. I must say, it feels like no other car I've driven.

It has done 78k miles with full service history and repair records. I'd have paid 4x more for an M5 (400BHP, 2wd) or 10x more for a Lotus Carlton (370BHP, 2 Wd). These S8 are 360BHP, 4 wd and all aluminium and no silly electronics to extend your retirement age.

The trouble is, I am now starting to feel that it is too clean to drive so I go everywhere in the Volvo 850 Tdi Auto CD

This is awesome!! Whenever I see one of these it always makes me think of the film Ronin with Robert De Niro total understated bruiser.

They've got an A8 as shed of the week on pistonheads this week, they do stand up to time really well.
Not that yours is a shed obviously!
