2011 AUDI A8

The all-new 2011 A8 features a 4.2 FSI with 372 horsepower. The engine affords increased power and torque, but the fuel consumption has dropped by around 15 percent, thanks to intelligent and efficient technologies like the recuperation system and innovative thermal management.
The standard new transmission also plays a large role in increasing efficiency — the extremely convenient 8-speed tiptronic finely graduates its eight gears while achieving a large overall spread.
The quattro permanent all-wheel drive has a distinct sporty and rear-end character. On request, the sport differential dynamically distributes the forces between the rear wheels.
The interior is captivating, with its new and spacious design and uncompromisingly high-quality workmanship full of attention to the smallest detail. The comfort on board is first class — from new, emotionally charged ambient lighting to the luxurious, power adjustable seats in the rear.
The 2011 Audi A8’s multimedia interface (MMI) includes a pioneering innovation: Combined with the standard navigation system it has a touchpad. MMI touch enables the driver to control many functions intuitively.
Another high-end solution on board the new 2011 A8 is the full LED headlights, which use light emitting diodes for all light functions. They give the luxury sedan an unmistakable appearance even in daylight and even more so after the fall of darkness. The revolutionary optics used in these headlights mean a departure from the tubular light modules commonly used today.
Base model estimated mpg: 17/27
Estimated starting price: $79,000
