We focused on three key areas when we created the sporting V8 S: the look, the engine and drivability. We concentrated on tuning the formidable 4.0 litre V8 S twin-turbocharged engine , giving it higher levels of power [521 bhp/528 PS] and torque [680 Nm from 1,700 rpm] to give it a more sporting edge, along with a breath-taking top speed of 190 mph [306 km/h].
We’ve also specially calibrated the suspension for faster responsiveness, as well improving the power to weight ratio. These enhancements combine with one of the world’s finest all-wheel drive systems to deliver excellent traction and control. Combined with better roll control, sharper steering
Shift into the transmission D Mode, or the even sportier S Mode, and you’ll notice the throttle response is immediately keener, even at low revs. It lets you sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds [0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds] in what feels like a seamlessly controlled yet irresistible surge. The V8 S’ engine management system gives you total control of the effortless power that is always available, while delivering a broader range of gear choice.
