It's a shame that Audi doesn't option the "sport" package for the A8 in
the US as it does in Europe. My thinking is that with the more taut,
lowered suspension and wider 18" rims w/ 245/45-18 tires, the handling
and braking critisicms would be duely addressed. Whip out the S8, and no
one would have a chance!
