5 of the best 2012 cars
Expected: £100,000 (summer 2012)
More power equals lighter fuel consumption. And no, we’re not bad at maths. Audi’s 2012 S8 cranks 520bhp out of its V8 4L block, pushing the tin (via an eight-speed ‘box) up to 155mph. Despite hitting 60mph from standstill in 4.2s, the S8 claims better efficiency thanks to an engine that intelligently shuts off cylinders when you reach cruising speed.
