2016 will mark the 22nd year that Audi has produced the A8, and they’re bringing it to market at full power with the A8 L 4.0T Sport. A daily driver capable of 450 hp, this muscular new A8 will undoubtedly be a popular model.
The German manufacturer released the new A8’s details in a press release today, sharing that the increased power comes courtesy of engine enhancements. The twin turbo 4.0T V8 is able to produce an additional 15 hp when compared to last year’s Sport edition, and the added power is reflected in a more aggressive design. Suspension was lowered, rocker panels were widened and the bumper has been reshaped, all making for a more dynamic appearance.
The interior is made more comfortable with additions throughout, from the top of the car to the bottom wheels. A panoramic sunroof is surrounded by Alcantara headliner, and acoustic glazing on the windows provides a dimmed, warm feeling inside the car. Those who opt for the Executive or Luxury package will see 22-way Comfort seats in their A8 “with Valcona leather and a sporty diamond pattern stitching.”
Pricing for this new A8 will start at $90,500, excluding destination charges, taxes, title, additional options and dealer charges. Find an Audi dealer near your or another one of the marque’s popular models from our exclusive listings at the button below.
