The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Audi S8 is a speed machine that's the ultimate sleeper. Spot one and stare—it'll likely be gone just as quickly. The 2018 BMW 7-Series is a plush ride with plenty of powertrain options and customizable features that places it among the full-size greats.
