If you want to see the difference, drive them. If you want the police to
chase you around, drive a flashier car. 
Not too many people (ie. POLICE)  I pass on the highway know what this car
can do, especially a black A8.
That amish overkill styling gets you .29 cd and very quiet at speed.  In
non-optimal driving conditions,
 I have the same as those other cars plus the quattro system with self
locking torsen center dif.
Style wise the S8 only has an extra badge and 18 in wheels.
