The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Audi S8 pairs thrilling acceleration with excellent big-car handling and discreet luxury. There's still no direct competition for the 2016 Tesla Model S, which offers elegant design, 240 miles or more of all-electric range, and jaw-dropping acceleration in the higher-end models. It's one of a kind.
