Audi A8

Expected Price : 78 Lakhs - 6.5 Crores 


The Audi A8 is a four-door, full-size, luxury sedan car manufactured and marketed by the German automaker Audi since 1994. Succeeding the Audi V8, and now in its third generation, the A8 has been offered with both front- or permanent all wheel drive and in short- and long wheelbase variants. The first two generations employed the Volkswagen Group D platform, with the current generation deriving the MLB platform. After the original model's 1994 release, Audi released the second generation in 2002, and the third and current iteration in 2009.
Notable for being the first mass-market car with an aluminium chassis, all A8 models have utilized this construction method co-developed with Alcoa and marketed as the Audi Space Frame.
A mechanically upgraded, high performance version of the A8 debuted in 1996 as the Audi S8. Produced exclusively at Audi's Neckarsulm plant, unlike the donor A8 model, the S8 has only been available in short-wheelbase form and is fitted standard with Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system.It is based on the Volkswagen Group MLB platform, but retains the Audi Space Frame aluminium construction of the previous A8, making it the lightest all-wheel drive car in the full-size luxury segment, while also giving it best-in-class fuel economy. The quattro all-wheel drive system splits torque with a default bias of 40 percent front and 60 percent rear.
Initial internal combustion engine options comprise 4.2-liter Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) petrol and Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel V8's, with 273 kW (366 hp) and 258 kW (346 hp) respectively. A 3.0-liter V6 TDI with either 184 kilowatts (247 hp) or 150 kilowatts (201 hp) will be available later. A 6.3 liter W12 engine only for the long wheelbase model was made available in 2010, and compared to its predecessor it has a larger displacement and direct fuel injection. All engines are mated to the new eight-speed ZF 8HP automatic transmission. Although other Audi vehicles such as the 2010 Audi S4 and 2011 Audi A7 had switched from the 4.2L V8 to the 3.0L supercharged V6, the Audi A8 retained a higher-output 4.2L V8 as the base engine for the 2011 and 2012 model years in North America. For the 2013 model year, the 4.2L V8 was replaced in favor of the 3.0L supercharged V6 and the 4.0L bi turbo V8. The 3.0L supercharged V6 has identical fuel economy to the 4.2L V8 despite lower peak horsepower and torque, actually has greater low-end torque for faster acceleration. The 4.0L bi turbo V8 is shared with the Audi S6 and Audi S7, while a high output variant of that engine making 520 hp is found in the Audi S8 and Bentley Continental GT.
The D4 A8 features all light-emitting diode (LED) headlights, an enhanced Multi Media Interface with touch pad, and an optional 1,400 watt Bang & Olufsen sound system.
Optional A8 features include a driver assistance system networked using Flex Ray technology. The GPS navigation system coordinates input to the adaptive headlights, transmission, cruise control and electronic stability control. The A8 also offers an optional driver control system for numerous sub-systems, marketed as MMI (Multi Media Interface) which can recognize handwriting inputs for the phone and navigation system and provide 3D navigation with Google Earth., optional night vision assistant with pedestrian recognition, and mobile broadband internet access with UMTS 3G and WLAN-Hotspot.
