Unveiled in Barcelona: All-new 2018 Audi A8

Lightweighting is in its DNA:  magnesium and carbon fiber in some inner structures, with aluminum comprising 58% of the A8’s body.

Car and Driver calls it “the pinnacle of Audi’s luxury sedans.”

Specs include a standard 333-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 (450-hp twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 optional), all-wheel drive, eight-speed automatic transmission, hybrid powertrain assist and standard adaptive air suspension. Opt for the head-up display and 22-way power seats with massage for maximum comfort.


The car can drive by itself–accelerate, brake and steer–on roadways at speeds of no more than 37mph/60kph. The mild hybrid system across the model range can shut down the A8’s engines during coasting and at longer idling periods. The brakes can regenerate lost energy and store it in the lithium-ion battery in the trunk.


European pricing to start at 90,600 euros, (about $103,225).  U.S. pricing TBA.
