Model Highlights

The all-aluminum-bodied Audi A8 is offered in two lengths, standard and long (designated "L"), and with two different engines. The A8 and A8 L utilize a 350-horsepower, 4.2L direct-injection V8, and the flagship A8 L model is powered by a smooth 450-horsepower "W12" engine based on a Volkswagen design.

Both models are matched with a 6-speed automatic transmission with the Tiptronic function, which allows the driver to manually select gears when desired. The 4.2L A8 can get from zero to 60 in only 5.9 seconds according to Audi, while the 6.0L W12 version can do the dash in 5.0 seconds.

All versions are matched with Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system, which transfers power from side to side as well as front to back, improving handling and all-weather capability. The Servotronic steering system adjusts assist and steering feel with vehicle speed, also for improved handling.

All A8 models get the Audi Adaptive Air Suspension, which automatically adjusts the damping rates to compensate for road and driving conditions. The driver can also change the ride height and firmness as desired with four modes. The available Sport package adds an additional setting with more aggressive damping.

The A8 comes with a full roster of safety features, including front and rear side air bags for outboard occupants, the Sideguard side-curtain air bag for outboard occupant head and chest protection, plus active front head restraints and knee air bags for front occupants. Air bag deployment is optimized with six different crash sensors. Stability control and anti-lock brakes with brake assist are also standard.

The A8 has distinctive LED lighting inside; it's appointed with Calcona leather upholstery and one of three different wood trims. Standard high-tech equipment on the A8 includes adaptive front lighting, an advanced parking system with rearview camera, a DVD-based navigation system, a 12-speaker Bose surround sound system with noise-reduction technology and CD changer, and rain-sensor wipers. An Advanced Key keyless entry system is new on the A8. A 4-zone climate control, power door and trunklid closers, electric side and rear sunshades and a rear-seat entertainment system with twin 6.5-inch screens are also standard. Optional on both is a more powerful, fully digital 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System, with 14 speakers.

Special options on the A8 include a solar-cell sunroof that circulates fresh air while the car is parked, dual-paned security glass, power lumbar support for the rear seats, and rear climate control. W12 models can truly be optioned up to Bentley levels, with an available personal refrigerator, a full dashboard leather package, and huge 20-inch forged alloy wheels.

The high-performance S8 model is powered by a Lamborghini-derived 5.2L V10 engine making 450-horsepower, mated to a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic and capable of reaching 60 mph in only five seconds. Besides a sportier outside appearance, the S8 gets a firmer suspension calibration and special aluminum and birch wood trim inside.


Model News

The A8 has few changes for 2009, but receives Audi's advanced parking system with a rearview camera, a keyless entry and start system as well as power door closers.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Audi A8 is separated from its competition thanks to its all-wheel-drive quattro system that comes standard. The A8 offers an especially distinctive, comfortable interior and strong lineup of high-tech interior convenience features, especially in the flagship W12 6.0L guise. The S8 pairs all of the A8's technological wizardry with the same V10 engine used in the Lamborghini Gallardo, making the S8 not only extremely luxurious, but also an excellent performer.


Pros

All-weather performance; superb safety; excellent ride and comfort; top tier sound systems; full interior features.
