Audi A8 L 4.0 TDI quattro

Audi is presenting the long-wheelbase version of the A8 4.0 TDI quattro. This touring saloon combines the dynamic qualities of the world's most powerful eight-cylinder diesel car with spacious first-class comfort.

Measuring 5.18 metres in length (A8 4.0 TDI quattro: 5.05 m) and with a wheelbase of 3074 mm (+130 mm), the long version offers a particularly generously dimensioned interior. Rear passengers, for example, benefit from a maximum 1075 mm of legroom. The front-passenger seat can be adjusted from the rear which means that the person sitting behind it can adjust their legroom to suit their individual requirements.

Behind the wheel, owners of the A8 L 4.0 TDI quattro can enjoy the experience of driving the sportiest saloon car in the luxury class – thanks to an aluminium chassis with air suspension and adaptive damper control, quattro permanent four-wheel drive and the power of the 4.0-litre V8 TDI engine which delivers 202 kW (275 bhp). 100 km/h is reached after 6.8 seconds, with the car's top speed limited to 250 km/h. This model has an overall fuel consumption of just 9.6 l/100 km.

Passengers getting into the back of the car will be impressed by a level of spaciousness and seating comfort that sets new standards. Electrically adjustable individual rear seats are available as an option. These can be ordered optionally as particularly softly upholstered comfort seats with massage function and seat heating/ventilation.

The optional four-zone automatic air conditioning system enables individual temperature control and draught-free air distribution at all four seats. The Audi A8 L 4.0 TDI quattro has a recommended retail price of € 82,900 and is now available for ordering.
