The Audi A8 was the first car in North America with an all-aluminum body. Audi utilizes a high-strength aluminum frame structure into which the panels are integrated so that they also perform a load-bearing function. The aluminum body is characterized by exceptional stiffness and substantially lower weight for better performance, efficiency and handling.

The full-size luxury marketplace is filled with wonderful choices for the consumer—and Audi brings a lot to the table with the unique A8.

What's New for 2014

The ever expanding A8 lineup grows even more for 2014 with the addition of the A8 L and its clean diesel stable mate the A8 L TDI. There are also several new option packages across the line as well as the addition of some new color choices.

Choosing Your Audi A8

W12 L

The luxury laden W12 L has a 6-liter W-12 engine with 500 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque. As you might expect, and EPA fuel economy numbers of 13 mpg city and 21 mpg highway won't impress. But its luxury and performance will.

All A8 models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive. Like most vehicles in this large luxury class, the A8 offers an impressive array of standard features. Adaptive xenon headlights that swivel in conjunction with the steering wheel are standard along with adaptive air suspension, 12-way adjustable front seats, a navigation system with an 8-inch pop-up display, Bose audio system, and Audi Connect which includes web-based applications, services and 3G Wi-Fi.

They include night vision, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, a solar sunroof that provides power for the ventilation system when the vehicle is parked, and a rear seat entertainment system comprised of a DVD player and two 10-inch LCD screens. The Premium Package contains full LED headlights and 22-way adjustable front seats complete with a five-stage massage function.
