Excellent comfort, the highest quality workmanship, stringent lightweight construction and a broad portfolio of high-end technologies: The Audi A8 is the flagship of the Audi model range. The Audi A8 L is 13 centimeters (5.1 in) longer than the standard version in both wheelbase and overall length. The Audi A8 L W12 is the pinnacle of the model series. Its naturally aspirated gasoline engine – extremely short and lightweight thanks to its W layout – produces 368 kW (500 hp) and 625 Nm (461.0 lb-ft) torque from its 6.3-liter engine displacement. At low load, a specially developed COD system is activated.
