The final front-end change for 2015 is an added set of folds in the hood that provide the S8 the visual “snarl” that in 2012’s soft hood did not have.
These fronts lights provide an intelligent cornering system that brightens the road as it bends, as well as revised daytime running lights and vibrant turn signals. You could see a wonderful shot of these new lights in each series over.
