Audis S8 Plus is the perfect transporter


WE JUST have to jump onto the cliché band-wagon here with the whole Audi and Transporter movie relationship. If you haven’t watched the Transporter movies then we suggest you do. Jason Statham plays the role of Frank Martin, a highly skilled driver known only as, "The Transporter." He will transport anything, no questions asked, always on time and he is known as the best in the business. His preferred mode of transportation is the Audi S8. Now though, Audi has a newer, more powerful version.

So why is the new Audi S8 Plus the perfect car for you to get the job done? We have some reasons right here:

Reason 1: You need to look like a professional and the Audi S8 Plus looks like the business! The S8 Plus reveals its position as the sportiest top model of the model series in its design detailing. The standard spoiler lip on the rear boot lid will catch one’s eye. It’s painted in the exterior body colour, and it’s also available in carbon fibre as an option. The flaps on the side air inlets and the blade on the front apron are made of carbon fibre. The mirror housings in the body colour are optionally available in gloss-black or carbon. The Single frame grille and double bars are in gloss-black, while the honeycomb structure of the side air inlets and radiator screen are in matte black. Distinctive design characteristics of the Audi S8 plus also include darkened taillights and a gloss-black diffuser insert, which has an additional carbon surround. The dual-branch sport exhaust system branches into two oval gloss-black tailpipes on the left and right.

Reason 2: Let’s face it… if you need to get away from the cops and their arsenal of crook-catching machines then how does 445kW sound? Audi engineers have enhanced the 4.0 TFSI engine for the new S8 Plus. The sonorous V8 biturbo engine now has a power output of 445kW and a maximum torque figure of 700Nm. In over-boost mode it can produce 750Nm. To make sure the fuzz don’t catch you, if you happen to come to a stop, the big S8 Plus can leap from 0-100km/h in 3.8 seconds. What’s more, the Audi S8 Plus is available with the option to increase its top speed to 305km/h. To put that into perspective, the cops would need a Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS to keep up with you.

Reason 3: Once you’ve evaded the boys (and girls) in blue or the baddies trying to nip the goods that you’re transporting, you might be a little stressed out. Thankfully, the interior of the Audi S8 Plus will help you relax. The interior features numerous sporty details, quality materials and generous interior space. Contrasting stitching in Arras red is used throughout the full-leather black interior. Piping, also in Arras red, trims the comfort sport seats as well and emphasizes the stylish side of the sport sedan. The headlining and rear parcel shelf is designed in black Alcantara.

A contrasting red thread has been woven into the upper inlay. The lower inlay is designed in brushed aluminium. Black piano paint trims the Tiptronic gear selector lever and the centre console. Characteristic of the interior of the S models are the round instruments with grey dials, white pointers, dynamic start-up and an S8 logo on the tachometer. The pedals and footrest shine in stainless steel. There is a decorative red ring on the Start/Stop button, and an S8 logo adorns the three-spoke sport leather steering wheel.

Here are some scenes from the Transporter movie on the S8:

We don’t condone any criminal activity however, if you happen to find yourself in need of a car that is able to transport high value goods quickly and safely, then, we suggest you look at getting one of these. Unfortunately we’re not sure of the price just yet, but we will keep you updated.
