This highly rated super luxury car offers the discerning driver – and especially its passengers – a powerful ride in spacious comfort, enjoying an array of tantalising features which will make every journey a pleasure.
Style – “Guaranteed to turn heads.”
The A8’s exterior classy elegance has been redefined with newly designed front and rear ends. Audi’s honeycomb grille dominates the front, while the innovative new air intakes create a distinctive contour. The LED headlights use DMD (digital micromirror device) technology, which offers maximum precision control. One of the functions sees the headlights illuminating the driver’s own lane particularly brightly, helping the driver stay on course. The OLED rear lights are a standard feature, but there are two rear light signatures to choose from when ordering the car. Also at the rear, a chrome strip and an LED light bar are positioned above the taillights, emphasising the car’s 1.95 metre width. The long wheelbase of 3 metres creates an imposing profile, the 20-inch alloy wheels are immediately eye-catching, while the panoramic sunroof and wide wheel arches signalling the quattro drive system complete the sleek allure. Whether viewed from the front, side or rear, the design details exude prestige and status.
Comfort – “Superb luxury in a spacious interior.”
The opulent interior of the A8 offers unmitigated comfort and unparalleled luxury. Stunning genuine leather paired with beautiful natural wood welcome drivers and passengers to a sumptuous driving experience. The high-quality workmanship is evident in the precise perforations of the Valetta leather seat covers, the electrically opening and closing decorative trim, and the air vent doors. Seats have 22 adjustment options which include ventilation and heating (optional in rear seats), as well as electrically adjustable velvety leather headrests – all ensuring a comfortable contour. Options for passengers include a footrest which can massage and warm the bottom of their feet, in addition to a relaxation seat package which includes a back massage with 18 pneumatic cushions. Four-zone deluxe automatic air conditioning, tray tables and a cooling compartment bring an added element of exclusive comfort.
Technology – “Impressive features even in modern times.”
New tech provides ambient lights which offer an incomparable 900 choices in the dark. The impressive array of features includes wireless smartphone charging, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, in addition to USBC for fast charging and data transfer. Rear seats are fitted with two 10.1-inch screens with full HD resolution which display content from passengers’ devices and can receive numerous audio and video streams via casting. A Bang & Olufsen advanced audio system will delight music lovers with a 3D sound produced by a 1902-Watt amplifier and 23 speakers. The rear seat remote firmly mounted to the centre armrest, allows backseat passengers to control their own comfort and infotainment functions. The control unit, with its OLED touch display, is approximately the size of a smartphone.
In the front, two screens (10.1-inch and 8.6-inch) adorn the shiny black dash and another 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with haptic feedback sits at the base of the centre stack, emphasising the high-tech appeal. The MMI touch response operating concept relies on natural voice operation, which is initiated by calling out “Hey, Audi!” Important information is displayed directly in the driver’s line of sight.
Performance – “A powerful presence on the road.”
The 55 TFSI quattro roars to life with a 340-hp turbocharged 3.0-litre V-6 engine, propelling it from 0 to 100 km in 5.6 seconds. Its all-wheel drive distributes torque perfectly between the rear wheels during cornering, making the handling even more stable. The 8-speed automatic transmission delivers a powerful performance, yet the standard four-corner air suspension and adaptive dampers ensure a smooth ride all the way. The jarring over speed bumps and potholes is a thing of the past, as you cruise on a cloud towards your destination.
Standard safety features ensure peace of mind while enhancing driving pleasure. The front and rear parking sensors and lane-departure warnings will aid in maintaining your distance from other vehicles. Headlights which adapt seamlessly to road conditions, automatic high beams, and superbly clear 360-degree surround-view camera system will alert you to your surroundings. In addition, the automatic emergency braking, progressive steering, and road-gripping performance tyres will keep you well protected.
When it comes to fuel economy, the A8 isn’t too thirsty for a big luxury sedan, achieving 8 km/l in the city and 12 km/l on the highway, giving it an average of 9.2. The engine requires premium fuel.
Perfectly Packaged – “Options for all tastes.”
To further customise your Audi A8 L55 TFSI, the colour spectrum includes eleven options; among them the new metallic District Green, Firmament Blue, Manhattan Grey and Ultra Blue. Also new to the palette are five alluring matte finishes – Daytona Grey, Floret Silver, District Green, Terra Grey and Glacier White.
The A8 comes with 5 years’ of service, 3 years warranty and 3 years of roadside assistance. At a mere 455 000 QAR, your search for the ultimate ride has come to an end.
