The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.6
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 Lexus LS 500 sedans don’t reach for the same performance limits as the LC coupes, but there’s ambition in every line.
