I'd take the S8 over the S for almost the same price: Lamborghini V-10, Audi interior, less aspirational, perfect q-ship.
The S8 is very nice, but it's also less car. Before, you could argue that the Audi interior was superior in quality, but this generation S-class's intererior is at least as good. Audi may have an available V-10, but you can get a turbocharged V-12 in an S-class.
The E-class face is not just ugly; it's super ugly. It's hard to make up for that. Also, the tail lights look ripped off from a 90's Lexus. Terrible. The most recent generation E-class, on the other hand, is gorgeous.
