Measuring 207.4 inches in total length, the 2012 Audi A8 L reaches out 5.2 inches longer than the standard A8 sedan. The 2012 Audi A8's standard adaptive air suspension deeply dampens any roughness on roads. Inside all 2012 Audi A8 models is a Bose Premium Surround Sound System with 20 gigabyte and dual-zone climate controls. Available on Premium package vehicles, the Audi A8 adds 22-way powered driver's seat with massage function. Mated with the quattro all-wheel drive system, standard power for the 2012 Audi A8 L is based on a 4.2 liter, direct-injected V-8 engine. Generating 372 horsepower, an 8-speed automatic transmission assures quick but smooth acceleration. The 2012 Audi A8 L includes standard safety protection of 8 airbags, the Audi parking system advanced with rearview camera, tire pressure monitoring system, and LED daytime running lights. For buyers requiring a greater level of protection when traveling, the 2012 Audi A8 L can also be custom-fitted from the factory in a High Security package. Reinforced in armor-quality materials, the A8 L High Security edition includes a two-way communication system between the outside and inside. The 2012 Audi A8 L High Security edition will be powered by either the 4.2 V-8 or a 500 horsepower 6.3 liter W-12 powerplant.
The long-wheelbase version of the A8, the A8L, is now slightly longer than the BMW 7-Series, Lexus LS or Mercedes-Benz S-Class, bringing an exceptionally roomy interior. The A8 still manages to feel more nimble and responsive than would ever be expected for such a large vehicle. A number of other tech features, such as the industry-first full LED headlamps and the next-generation touchpad MMI interface inside, are market standouts.
Following a complete redesign in 2011, Audi's flagship A8 large luxury sedan returns for 2012 mostly unchanged. A new 4.0L V8 engine replaces last year's 4.2L V8, with a single turbocharger making 400 hp, while the 6.3L V12 engine gets a boost of power as well--up to 500 hp over last year's 450.
A direct-injected 4.0L turbocharged V8 engine making 400 horsepower is standard on A8 and S8L models. The A8L W12 FSI gets a direct-injected, 500-hp, 6.3L W12 engine. All A8 models come with quattro all-wheel drive, which is calibrated to feel sporty and enhance cornering confidence yet also take on slippery road conditions. The system can send 60 percent of torque to the rear wheels, or to whichever wheels have the best traction. Both models come with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
