The power of the A8L's engine makes it the most powerful found in a model bearing the Audi name. There are actually two gasoline and two diesel engines available in the German market.
Many people will be interested in the previous engines, the 3.0 liter V6 TFSI with 310 horsepower and the V8 twin-turbo 4.0 TFSI with 435 horsepower.
The 8 speed Tiptronic from Audi is an electronically controlled automatic transmission that makes it easier to shift gears and deliver the speed and performance required seamlessly.
The Audi A8L has been constructed as a very lightweight performance car. Only 4,034.46 lbs in weight, this makes it one of the lightest all-wheel drive cars in the market.
The interior is spacious allowing for maximum comfort. Most interesting though, the front seats come with ventilation and massaging features. This ensures passengers travel in ease and comfort. It comes with a four-zone automatic air conditioning which further enhances the luxurious sense you get when driving the A8L.
The unique driving assistance system provides confidence. Audi's basic safety system has been expanded to include an adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go function allowing drive time to be less stressful and, to a degree, safer.
The MMI navigation plus has also been integrated into the vehicle which offers the option for adding a car phone to the unit.
