Audi A8 2015

Audi A8 has received significant updates and efficiency tweaks to start the competition with its class rival Mercedes-Benz S-Class. These new engines refinements make these new units very efficient. Since its introduction the S-Class has faced a serious swindle from the A8 and that’s how it stays. It has received a facelifted shape in order to improve the riding experience and body control. The all new Audi A8 is also equipped with cutting edge Matrix LED headlights and luxurious interior tweaks. However, Audi built its A8 interior with top quality finish but in a sector where it’s all about exclusiveness, Mercedes is still the king.

On the engine side, Audi has equipped with V8 engine which is further cleaner and quieter as it was never before. But it is not a cheap option this time if you select the options. It can be up to 105,710GBP with all the boxes ticked. The all new V8 unit is a 4.2 Litre TDI engine which is quieter but more potent than its competitor. It is an exclusive proposition beside the 7 Series of BMW, XJ of Jaguar and no doubt S-Class, all these models are equipped with six cylinder diesel engines.

It’s also been boosted by 35bhp of additional power and 50Nm of torque to an astonishing 380bhp and 850Nm of torque, exclusive of spoiling the excellent 37.7mpg fuel economy. This Audi A8 engine is paired with an eight speed transmission to boost up the throttle response, further more this transmission has enhanced and smooth shuffling between the ratios to offer further quieter surf on the go. There’s certainly not a possibility of wasting any of that energy through wheel spin either, Audi’s all wheel Quattro technology is there as standard on all A8s apart from the Hybrid versions.
