2011 Audi A8 L

2011 Audi A8 Review

(5 Stars)  Aimed high, executed higher

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Audi A8 has long been the flagship sedan model and is all new for the 2011 model year. Now better equipped than ever before and ready to take on the BMW and Mercedes models, the A8 is loaded up with all the rich features that you would expect of a luxury sedan. The A8 even has a high tech information center that makes use of inputs from a touchpad located on the center console. This system can show you all sort of information about your vehicle, surrounding traffic and can even plot out your trip on the built in gps navigation system.

The new body style is larger than previous models, but the all aluminum frame allows for an almost even trade off in weight. The base models engine is now a 4.2 L V-8 giving 372 HP and over 320 foot pounds of torque. When this high powered engine is parred with the Audi Quattro all wheel drive system, you have a match made in heaven. The A8 offers a long wheel base option to allow for more luxury and lounge space.
