2013 Audi A8 L Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review

http://www.autobytel.com/audi/a8/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Audi A8 L is the top of the line luxury vehicle from this German auto manufacturer. The “L” denotes that this is a long-wheelbase edition which stretches the chassis by 5 inches which directly translates into more rear leg room. The A8 combines the highest level of luxury with advanced technology and a powerful engine into one almost perfect package. Some model highlights include an adaptive air suspension, LED headlights, Quattro all-wheel drive, Audi Space Frame Technology, and an aerodynamic sexy exterior design. The 2013 Audi A8 has a base price of $72,200 but the A8 L with the 4.0T engine as seen here starts at $87,200.

If you are a luxury brand trying to sell car in America than you need a flag-ship sedan. And there are many good ones to choose from; and this Audi A8 has something very impressive under the hood. Most luxury buyers are actually buying the long wheelbase version over the short wheelbase cars. Everything from the B-pillar forward is the same as the regular A8. Where Audi makes the added room count is in the second room. Our test car here has the $11,250 Executive Rear Seat Comfort Package which includes large rear seats with foot rests, message functionality, Audi Exclusive Cool Box, Valcona Leather, and an Entertainment Package.

In the case of the Audi A8 there are actually 3 engine choices offered. The 3.0 liter supercharged V-6 engine makes 333 horsepower while the engine on the vehicle reviewed here is a twin-turbo 4.0 liter V-8 that produces 420 horsepower and 444 lb-ft. of torque. The last engine is a huge V-12 known as the W12. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. Fuel economy ranges from 18/28 MPG for the 3.0T to 16/26 MPG for the 4.0T. The V-8 engine features cylinder deactivation to increase fuel economy.

Besides the amazing engine and the beautiful exterior, the 2013 Audi A8 comes standard with Quattro all-wheel drive. The powerful twin-turbo engine, 8-speed transmission, and Quattro help the A8 accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 4.8 seconds.
