Audi India today launched its flagship model in India, the A8L at a price of Rs 89,00,000, ex-showroom, Delhi. The new generation A8 in its "L" variant is closer to a limousine dynamically and offers many unique features for its segment.
Displacing a massive 4163cc, the 4.2 FSI V8 petrol engine, Audi’s elite A8L is capable of generating 372 horse power with a chassis twisting 445Nm of torque at just 3,500 rpm. Coming with an electronically controlled 8 speed tiptronic automated transmission and quattro permanent all wheel drive, the A8 is able to go from standstill to 100km/hr in just 5.8 seconds flat. A 3.0 litre TDI V6 diesel engine is expected to be launched by March this year which will produce 250 bhp.
A8L is a treat to the senses with everything present to pamper you in each and every way-be it the Bang & Olufsen sound system, the Multi Media Information system with a touchpad, the numerous buttons to control the exact temperature and level of airflow from the A/C vents in your direction-its all about the ultimate indulgence.To ensure passenger safety, the new Audi A8L will be tucked in with the usual ABS, EBD, ESP and numerous airbags. Also part of the security arsenal is the Audi press sense basic safety system, which by using information from the ESP system can ‘understand’ a critical situation and help mitigate the situation by intervening.
