On Audi's S8, GTspirit writes: photographers also managed to get snaps of the 2012 Audi S8 testing at the Nurburgring almost completely undisguised. Visually, the car has very few upgrades giving it a subtle look. Aside from the S8 badging, four exhaust tips are obvious, expect a new interior and a semi-automatic gearbox...
