Its the S8. The major diffrence being the grill in the lower part of the front bumper. The two cars are hard to diffrentiate unless size comes into play.

I Loooooooved the pre facelifted S6 and S8, but not a big fan of the new 'moustache grill'

*gulp* That is one heck of a power sedan. The owner not only has great taste, but an eye for detail (number = S8). The Gallardo-derived V10 can kick off a 0 - 100 in 5 seconds. Chip her up and you should see a realistic 300 kph?

This is what makes it the S8:

Fat chance of a new S8 for 92 lakhs.

I'm seeing the S8 at the DLF office in Bandra(east) since the last 1 week but never actually bothered to take a pic.When i found that no one on t-bhp has actually posted about the S8 so i thought i'd start a thread.The owner has a long list of exotic cars! I have seen just 10 of his collections.

The owner might as well be a Bhpian looking at his taste and eye for detail.
