The new Audi A8: the future of luxury

The future of luxury is here: the new Audi A8 makes its worldwide debut during the Audi Summit in Barcelona.

The fourth generation of the flagship model carries on the philosophy that hinges on the concept of being ‘on the technical cutting edge’ with a new stylistic language, an innovative touchscreen control system and complete kinematic chain electrification.


Audi A8 is also the world’s first production car developed for extensively automated driving. Starting in 2018, Audi will launch standard production of piloted driving functions, including Park Pilot, Garage Pilot and Traffic Jam Pilot.

Audi A8 is a style icon and marks the beginning of a new era of design for the entire brand. The vertical front with the bold Singleframe grille and the fluid, muscular lines express a sense of sporty elegance, quality and refined image.

The new A8 keeps the promises embodied in the Audi Prologue concept car. The new luxury sedan stands out for its forceful presence, in both the normal version with a length of 5.17 meters, and the A8 L version which is 13 centimeters longer.
