The Sport Differential Feature
The standard sport differential is a perfect complement to the quattro drive. The high-end rear differential distributes the power in continuously variable proportions between the rear wheels. It does this using two superposition gears, each of which comprise two sun gears and an internal gear and are engaged by means of electrohydraulic multi-plate clutches. They rotate 10 percent faster than the drive shaft.
When the clutch closes, it steplessly forces the higher speed of the superposition gear onto the wheel. The additional torque is drawn off of the opposite wheel via the differential. In this way nearly all of the torque can be directed to one wheel. The maximum difference between the wheels is 1,800 Nm (1,327.61 lb-ft).
In fast curves, the sport differential literally pushes the sedan into the radius so that the S8 corners as if on rails. The system nips any tendency toward oversteer or understeer in the bud. Thanks to its short reaction time – less than 100 milliseconds – it works even faster than the ESP stabilization system. It is just as effective while coasting as it is under load. Control of the sport differential is integrated into the standard Audi drive select system.
