The A8’s blend of performance, comfort and serenity are wedded to a beautifully built, practical and well-equipped interior. In fact, by a whisker, it beats the Mercedes S-Class, which shows just how good to drive and be driven in the A8 is.

If you're after a long-wheelbase A8 then Vorsprung is our pick of the range. It brings 21in alloy wheels, four-wheel steering, a panoramic glass sunroof, front massage seats, an Extended Leather Pack, a 360-degree parking camera and a 17-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. You also get digital matrix LED headlights, which are said to allow a greater range of adjustment than conventional matrix lights so they can better illuminate the lane you’re in on the motorway or widen the pool of light they produce for dark rural lanes – all without dazzling oncoming traffic.

If you're after a regular A8 (not the S8) then we reckon the 282bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel 50 TDI is the most sensible choice because it costs the least to buy and is remarkably efficient on a run.
