    About Audi A8


    The Audi A8 debuted in 1994 in Europe as a full-size luxury machine constructed on the Volkswagen's D2 platform. It featured an aluminum monocoque referred to as the ASF, or "Audi Space Frame" which was employed to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle. This gave the model the distinction of being the world's first vehicle derived from an aluminum platform and incorporating aluminum parts. The A8 was initially offered in two different wheelbases: standard and long (A8L). In 1997, it finally made its way to North America. That same year, it also became available in both front-wheel drive and with Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system. The first generation A8 saw several engine options. Front-wheel drive versions were equipped with a 2.8L V6 capable of approximately 190 horsepower or a 3.7L V8 (230 HP). Those sporting the Quattro all-wheel drive system got a 4.2L V8 that produced around 300 horsepower. Standard luxury A8 accessories included leather upholstery, wood grain trim, heated seats, and a Bose stereo.

    In 2000, the exterior to the Audi A8 received a slight redesign, mostly to the front-end. Larger headlights, a new grille, and fog lamps were installed. The 3.7L engine for the front-wheel drive was discontinued, but in North America the A8L was introduced. In 2002, the A8L was outfitted with xenon HID headlights, a Symphony II stereo, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Soon after, the second generation D3 Audi A8 was unveiled. It is slightly longer than the first generation, allowing for more room inside for passengers. Both wheelbase options were carried over, as were the engine configurations. Audi changed things up a bit in 2005, this time offering new engine to car buyers in Europe and Asia, including an entry-level 3.2L FSI V6. In 2008, the Audi A8 became available with new innovative safety features, such as Audi Lane Assist and Audi Side Assist, earning the brand high praise from within the industry.

    The third generation of the Audi A8 was introduced in late November 2009. It still boasts the same aluminum Audi Space Frame and the same aluminum Audi A8 parts. Engines include a 4.2L Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) and a Turbocharged Direct Injection diesel V8. Tech-savvy amenities such as an improved Audi Multi Media Interface and a Bang and Olufsen stereo have been added as well. Other safety features include a "pre-crash system," a rear-view camera, night vision, and the same lane and side assist functions seen in the previous generation. The Audi A8 has been the recipient of numerous industry awards since its run began. It was named the Best Luxury Sedan by Automobile Magazine (1999), to Edmunds.com Editors' Most Wanted List (2005), and a Consumer Guide Best Buy (2005, 2006).

    The A8 has demonstrated true staying power, and thus has become one of Audi's prime examples of innovative design and pleasing comfort. Using an all-aluminum frame for a soothing feel, this elegant machine also boasts all of the amenities luxury car buyers look for. The heated seating, wood trim, and powerful sound system make it feel like as if you're lounging in the living room while perched in the cabin. But it's the overall image and drivability of the A8 that has gotten so much attention. When it's your ride we're talking about, you have to give it your very own "stamp of approval."
