Default S8 Cool Status ??

To Quote IT .....

" A8's are good. S8's are a bit special. And then, some S8's, are just a bit more special again "

Being in the latter half of half a century I have had the pleasure of owning and driving many cars ....

None of the cars I have owned or driven have given me as much pleasure, sense of owning the road ....
or that feeling of pure driving pleasure like the S8 has and does every time I turn the key.....

In my books it warrants " Cool " status ....

It deffo a cool car for sure and feels like such a nice place to be, is a really driveable car as well for the size of it, so yes S status is cool.

No poll?

Hmm, you might question the results of any poll on the sampling technique!

Not sure a poll here on how cool an '8 is would be regarded as a random sample of the population.

The D2 S8 definitely qualifies for cool status, simply because it is Old Audi! The newer ones look a tad vulgar, and are definitely new Audi. Still cool, but less so.
