This is the all new 2010 Audi A8. Ingolstadt’s answer to the 7-series of Bavaria and S-class of Munich. But maybe ‘all new’ is not the right term for describing it, ‘facelift’ is probably better. The new face of the A8 luxury saloon features a totally revised front-end with new LED headlights, new grille and bumpers. It is certainly sportier than the old gen, but is it good-looking?!
Well, that’s a matter of taste really. At the backside, A8 is now more sleek and elegant. There are new LED taillights here as well and new integrated tailpipes. The car will be loaded with technology. Like the old A8 it’s built with an aluminum space frame for extra rigidity and lightness. It’ll be available with a wide range of petrol and diesel engines, quit possibly a hybrid version in some years, and new eight speed gearbox. It will also get a new Multimedia/Navigation system with handwriting recognition!
2010 Audi A8 was expected to debut at this year’s Frankfurt Motorshow, but apparently its unveiling is now scheduled for Detroit Motor Show in January 2010.
