Mein Auto: 2013 Audi S8
Luckily a different independant reviewer found the identical results. Carlos drove the S8 and B7, then made independant reviews. Jonny L did a review of B7, vs. S8.

Matt Farah found the same findings, car and drivers results are incoming very soon.

To summarize the general take. B7 is a beter version of the 750i, although feeling very heavy, it eivers a pleasant comfortable drive. S8 is an axe murderer in the straights, and holds its own in the turns, feeling smaller than it is, but at the expense of a steering fel that doesn't give feedback to the tires limits of traction.

Once cost is factored in, the S8 delivers the goods, and the B7 offers an alternative for some buyers valuing loks, or perhaps exclusiveness, or brand loyalty, or a mix of things, since it does perform admiraby too in the big picture of large sport lux.
