Audi has announced the 2016 S8 Plus will cost $114,900 when it goes on sale in the United States in December.

Set to celebrate its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next week, the S8 Plus is a high-performance flagship sedan that features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine with 605 bhp (451 kW) and 516 lb-ft (698 Nm) of torque - this is 85 bhp (63 kW) and 73 lb-ft (98 Nm) more the standard S8.  This enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph in an impressive 3.7 seconds before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) or 190 mph (305 km/h) when equipped with the optional Dynamic package.

Besides the upgraded engine, the S8 Plus comes equipped with an adaptive sport air suspension, a dynamic steering system and a torque vectoring rear differential.

On the styling front, there isn't much to report as the model features silver mirror caps, a body-color rear spoiler and 21-inch alloy wheels with a titanium finish.

Buyers looking for a more unique appearance can order the Black Optic package which adds a black Singleframe grille, carbon fiber mirror caps, a carbon fiber rear diffuser and tinted taillights.

Customers can also order the aforementioned Dynamic package which boasts ceramic brakes, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and a sports exhaust system that produces an even more powerful sound.

Note: European model shown and pricing excludes a $925 destination charge
