The Audi S8 quattro is a high-performance version of the German automaker Audi's flagship vehicle, the Audi A8. It is a large luxury executive car, and was introduced in 1998, four years after the A8's introduction to the European market. It is only available as a four-door saloon/ sedan.

The S8, like all Audi "S" models, is fitted as standard with Audi's trademark quattro four-wheel drive (4WD) system, with the S8 using the Torsen-based permanent 4WD.

Its main market competitor could include the Mercedes-Benz S63/ 65 AMG.

In 1998, Audi introduced the Audi S8 4.2 quattro (Typ 4D) into the European market, a high-performance version of the Audi A8 in the vein of Mercedes-Benz AMG models, sharing the A8's all aluminium monocoque "Audi Space Frame", and Volkswagen Group D2 platform.

Production of this original S8 ended in 2003, shortly before the introduction of the current D3-platform A8.

The D2 S8 was also featured in the 1998 film Ronin.
