Every movement originates from something. Something that set it off, an idea. The engine for your new A8 L was also inspired by an initial thought: higher power with lower fuel consumption.
TDI® – powerful and efficient
With the combination of direct injection and turbocharging, Audi TDI engines promise exceptional performance – thanks to the high torque output over the entire engine speed range with constant power build-up. Renowned for being economical on fuel and low on emissions but they are incredibly dynamic too – letting you get the maximum out of any road.
quattro® – permanent and variable
Have the road completely under control. Because the drive force is permanently distributed to all four wheels. Variably controlled by the centre differential. Always as the situation demands. Experience handling stability, dynamism and agility as never before and combat the effects of over and understeer with quattro and the optional sport differential. For increased traction and superior propulsive power. Tame any road. And always keep your eyes set on where you‘re heading. In bends. On straights. Over any surface. For a fascinating experience that sticks. To the road – and in your mind.
tiptronic – dynamic and smooth
The 8-speed automatic transmission with Dynamic Shift Program (DSP) ensures faster gear changes without any tangible interruption in power flow.
