First spy photos of the 2012 Audi S8 have been caught testing just outside of the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
The future performance Audis will be influenced by the S8' design, according to Audi design director Stefan Sielaff.
The new S8 will feature carbon fibre and aluminium styling materials.
The rumors say that the current 5.2-litre V10 engine, rated at 331 kW (444 bhp / 450 PS), will be replaced by a smaller V8, which should offer more. The expected transmission is a 7-speed double-clutch S Tronic.
The new Audi S8 goes on market in 2011 as a 2012 model.
