    Well, its definatly a V8, 4.2L 40V producing 310 HP...depending on the year of the car, the HP was increased in 2001, there was also a 3.7L but that was dropped in 2001 (240hp)

    Its a pretty sweet car...so big.

    Its not ment to be terribly fast, 0-60 is around 8 flat, and the quarter mile is 16s...the ride quality is awesome tho, and lots of torque (302ft-lb).

    Sweet ride...now tell him to go buy an s8...

    I think he meant he couldn't believe that you would ACTUALLY go 220+ down 16th Ave. because of traffic and shit, although there isn't much traffic early in the morn. But it's totally do-able...

    I still wouldn't go that fast on one of the most high traffic roads dabsmack in the middle of civilization. Actually, at 2:30am, I was out on the roads, and I'm sure glad I didn't take 16th ave and risk getting smoked by an A8 going 220.

    Umm, it was 2:30am, although its not the safest thing to do, neither is running into a fence, or whatever it was you did in the Beastmobile.

    A redesigned A8 is out in Germany sometime later this year
    but won't be offered here till later on as a 2004 car
    increase of 25hp i believe it was
    6 speed auto trans
    makes 0-60 in 6.3 sec now as compared to 6.8 in the previous version
    the front still looks the same
    but the rear end is a different now
