Design: The engine hood, the single-frame grille and the front bumper of the new Audi A8L are even more sculptured, while the straight lower edges on the headlights give its face an eye-catching look. The rear of the new Audi A8L has been completely redesigned and is now more homogeneous. A chrome brace has been integrated to the rear lights. Although the size of the tail end has not actually changed, its new design renders it much flatter and thus broader.

Driving Experience: The engine lineup has become more powerful and efficient to offer better performance and optimum efficiency. The new Audi A8L has one TFSI gasoline engine and two TDI units. These are the V8 bi turbo 4.0 TFSI with 320 kW (435 hp), the highly efficient 3.0 TDI with 180 kW (250 hp) and the 4.2 TDI with 283 kW (385 hp).

The 4.0 TFSI accelerates from 0 to 100 km/hr in 4.6 seconds. Equipped with a fast and smooth-shifting, eight-speed tiptronic, the Audi A8L owes its sporty character in large part to the sophisticated chassis. The quattro and Audi drive select system is standard.

Comfort: In the interior of the Audi flagship, the elegant lines and generous spaciousness stand out. Every detail demonstrates the hand-built character of the new Audi A8L. Audi offers a wide range of options, for the front seats, including ventilation and massage functions in five programs.

There are many additional luxury features from which to choose- from the Rear Seat Executive package and Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System to Park
