2011 Audi A8
2011 Audi A8
The Audi A8 has long been the flagship sedan model and is all new for the 2011 model year. Now better equipped than ever before and ready to take on the BMW and Mercedes models, the A8 is loaded up with all the rich features that you would expect of a luxury sedan. The A8 even has a high tech information center that makes use of inputs from a touchpad located on the center console. This system can show you all sort of information about your vehicle, surrounding traffic and can even plot out your trip on the built in gps navigation system.

The new body style is larger than previous models, but the all aluminum frame allows for an almost even trade off in weight. The base models engine is now a 4.2 L V-8 giving 372 HP and over 320 foot pounds of torque. When this high powered engine is parred with the Audi Quattro all wheel drive system, you have a match made in heaven. The A8 offers a long wheel base option to allow for more luxury and lounge space.

Audi A8 Hybrid Front2
Audi plans to launch a hybrid version of its biggest luxury car, the A8, in 2012. The A8 hybrid is designed to provide the performance of a six-cylinder car while sipping fuel like a four-cylinder car. The majority of the A8 hybrid’s propulsion comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine good for 211 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It works in tandem with a disc-shaped electric motor rated for 54 hp and 155 lb-ft. The motor is mounted in place of a torque converter between the engine and the eight-speed automatic transmission. Peak combined power from the engine and motor is 245 hp and 345 lb-ft.Electrical energy is stored in a 40 kW lithium-ion battery located in the trunk. Audi says the A8 hybrid returns the equivalent of 37 mpg in preliminary testing. The hybrid can drive at up to 62 mph on electric power alone.Keep your speed limited to 37 mph, however, and it can travel 1.86 miles using only electricity. With both drive units working in tandem, 62 mph can be reached in 7.7 seconds. For reference, the non-hybrid A8 is EPA-rated at 17/27 mpg (city/highway), and reaches 62 mph in 5.7 seconds, according to Audi. The A8 hybrid will offer three driving modes: EV prioritizes all-electric propulsion, D is a normal blend of efficiency and power, and S is meant for sportier acceleration. Unlike the A8s sold in our market, the A8 hybrid is only offered with front-wheel-drive. To set it apart from regular A8 models, the hybrid gets unique, turbine-style 18- or 19-inch wheels; an exclusive Arctic Silver paint color; LED headlights; and plenty of hybrid badges. The Audi A8 hybrid is scheduled to begin production in 2012. It’s unknown whether the car will make its way to American dealerships. Audi does plan, however, to bring a diesel-powered A8 to the U.S. market next year. Source: Audi
2011 Audi A8l Front Left Side View
It's difficult to appreciate just how long the A8L is until you stand next to it...or attempt to park it in your garage. Perhaps this will provide some perspective: the A8L's wheelbase and overall length are within a half an inch of the three-row, eight passenger Honda Odyssey minivan. In other words, they aren't kidding around when they added the "L" to the name. Hip and headroom are plentiful, although as in the A7 the wide console in between the front seats -- which houses the MMI dial flanked by related buttons and now the touch pad -- makes the driver's seat feel tighter than it should in such a big car. The upside is that this large area provides another place to use the gorgeous, matte wood veneer that we loved in the A7.

Just as they did last month, German automakers have each posted overall sales increases for May. While all brands saw sales growth this past month, the big winner once again was Volkswagen with a respectable 27.9-percent gain over May of last year.
