Audi today loosed a handful of new images of the upcoming 2012 Audi S8. Revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, the S8 combines the sleek, understated looks of the A8 with a hint of aggression and a whole lot of speed.

The latest images show us some new views of the car, including a good look at the S8's interior, which is just as attractive as the outside. Detail shots of the tachometer and door sill show S8 badging inside in addition to out.

Powered by a twin-turbo V-8 engine good for 520 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, the S8 is sure to be a riot to drive, though we'll have to hold our final judgment until we get the chance to put one on track.

The S8 should arrive for sale in the U.S. in the first half of next year.
