Take a closer look at this 2017 BMW 7 Series vs 2017 Audi A8 comparison to learn more about what the revolutionary BMW 7 Series has to offer.

BMW 7 Series vs Audi A8 Power and Performance Specs

Heart-pounding performance is at the top of any list when you consider the BMW and Audi brands. Standard BMW 7 Series editions employ a thrilling 320-horsepower 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-6 that is mated to an eight-speed Sport Automatic transmission and will take you from zero to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. When you add BMW xDrive all-wheel drive, the BMW 7 Series will make the same sprint in 5.1 seconds.
Next up in the BMW 7 Series power lineup is a 445-horsepower 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V-8 that will vault you from zero to 60 mph in a mind-blowing 4.3 seconds with all-wheel drive. If you truly thrive on power and speed, the BMW Alpina B7 is powered by an explosive 600-horsepower 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V-8 that will top out at 193 mph and hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds.
Audi A8 competitors answer with a standard 333-horsepower 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Despite a few extra horsepower, the stock Audi A8 provides a lackluster zero to 60 mph time of 5.5 seconds with all-wheel drive. Drivers who desire an upgrade in power, performance and excitement may find that the 333-horsepower 4.0-liter supercharged V-8 falls well short of expectations with a sprint time that lags behind the BMW 7 Series.
