The Audi A8 is now bigger, more powerful and luxurious with the arrival of the new range-topping A8 L W12.
In the cabin
Luxury and space take centre stage, with longer rear doors improving access to its Valonea leather upholstered cabin. The new car is almost half a foot (130mm) longer and 2mm higher than the standard car.
Four-zone air-conditioning comes as standard – with no fewer than 25 motors helping to control the environment.
There's also the option of a full-length console between the separate rear seats. This can be specified with executive essentials such as a retractable work desk and refrigerator.
Under the bonnet
The A8 L W12 is powered by a 493bhp 6.3-litre engine, which can blast it from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and on to a electronically limited speed of 155mph.
