2016 Audi A8

Audi’s luxury sedan for 2016 carries over with only minor updates. The A8 Sport offers the 4.0-liter turbocharged engine in a more athletic package with revised front and rear bumpers, front sport air intakes and a rear diffuser. With the exception of the S8, all A8s now ride on the long-wheelbase chassis.

For 2013, the Audi expands the A8 lineup to four trims: a 3.0T V6, 4.0T V8, S8 and W12. The twin-turbocharged V8 is more powerful than the outgoing 4.2-liter V8 it replaces, and the 3.0T creates a new lower price point for the A8 without sacrificing power or standard-equipment levels. New features include a hands-free trunk release and top and corner-view cameras.

2011 Audi A8 What's new for 2011? 
2011 Audi A8

The exterior styling of the 2011 Audi A8 sedan is all-new, yet largely follows the traditional and elegant theme established for the A8, with enhanced LED lighting up front. As with the R8 sports car, aluminum Audi Space Frame construction has helped hone the chassis and reduces that chassis weight by a claimed 40 percent over a comparable steel structure. Inside, the MMI control interface has been revised, incorporating an innovative touchpad for driver input.

For 2010, Audi pairs back some of the A8's features, tossing the 6.0-liter W12 engine in favor of a 4.2-liter V8 for all trims and discontinuing the performance oriented S8. Normal wheelbase models gain an S8-inspired trunk lid spoiler and 19-inch wheels, while ventilated massage front seats are made standard on long wheelbase models.

About Audi A8

In the world of big executive sedans, the 2016 Audi A8 holds particular appeal. Not as boldly styled as the BMW 7 Series or Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the A8 flies just under the radar. The A8 distances itself from the competition by offering standard all-wheel drive (AWD) and by placing a heavy emphasis on the car’s interior design. For those who prefer the back seat to the driver’s seat, the A8 W12 provides limousine-like comfort and a 12-cylinder engine, creating a car that will never be mistaken for the standard airport livery car. Among the A8’s other engine options is a fuel-efficient turbodiesel serving up class-leading fuel economy up to 36 mpg. With its shorter wheelbase, the performance-oriented S8 provides a measurable improvement in handling and acceleration.

"I have just bought my Audi A8L! The car is just phenomenal and super luxurious! It has all the features, technology, and design that screams luxury! Bird-eye-view camera with all possible angles of the car from any corner. 22 way seat adjustments with massage capability. A cabin that soothes your every sense making you feel in ecstatic state of mind with led lighting the entire car at night and with selection of three different color variations. The craftsmanship of the interior would be more than enough to buy the car but Audi didn't stop there-they introduced an exterior design with perhaps the best looking face a luxury sedan to date. Everywhere I take this car, it always gets noticed and people take there last chance to see it before it disappears. The car has a built in Wifi that can connect up to eight devices and especially a great feature for long drives with friends! Ventilated and heat seats are great as well! In short, it is the luxury sedan made for the person who knows what true luxury is! For people who have considered other luxury brands for their super luxury sedan, give Audi a chance and you will know what I'm talking about. This car is youthful, elegant, sophisticated, and most of all, the pinnacle of what a luxury car is all about! Experience it and be prepared to be dazzled!!!"

"I took deliver of my 2011 A8L four months ago. After driving a BMW750 Li, Benz SL550, I chose the Audi. The car is a value when you compare it to the aforementioned vehicles. This car is beautiful and the interior is elegant. Not many on the road, so you get a lot of people taking a second look at it. Many gadgets to play with on this car. No problem with this car so far and I don't expect many as AUDI stands behind their product. IPhone sync's well with the Bluetooth."
