The Audi A8 comes with two engine options. The V8 is capable of a total output of 435 horsepower, capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 in 7.5 seconds and 21 mpg.
The W12 engine on the other hand gives you 500 horsepower and 7.1 seconds from 0 to 60 mph.
Despite being a spacious vehicle, its size does not make it a heavy vehicle. Due to the aluminum body, the Audi is 40% lighter.
Combined with the fact that it is close to the ground, the car is stable when cornering at high speeds.
The wider tires contribute to its road grip making its handling much easier.
The presentation model was painted in an all-black color which better suits its purpose. Small changes were made to the bonnet and front bumper.
The grille features chromed lines while the hood is lowered on the side.
The rear of the car is similar to other A8 models. It hides the small tail lights but without reaching to the side, and the double exhaust system exiting trough the rear bumper.
Audi equipped the interior with a number of controls. The seats are adjustable electronically and most actions can be done using the central LCD panel. Leather has been used throughout the entire interior.
The rear seats are equipped with 10 inch displays for entertainment purposes and on request the manufacturers can add relaxation features to the seat.
The Audi A8 L Security addresses a specific market segment.
Mixing these characteristics with luxury sedan elements, the Audi A8 becomes an exclusivist car for the ones who need it.
