The Audi A8 has set new standards for the luxury sedan in terms of interior and exterior design, technology, efficiency and performance through the S8. The 2013 A8 model line represents a dramatic expansion of the flagship sedan offering by moving from two models (V8 and W12) to a four vehicle model line-up (3.0T V6, new 4.0T A8, new 4.0T S8 and the W12).
New for the 2013 model year are introduction of the award-winning 3.0T Supercharged V6 and the all-new 4.0T V8 twin-turbo engines. The 3.0T V6 engine generates 333 horsepower that delivers better performance and makes entry into the A8 model line available to more buyers. It also benefits from being available in normal and long wheelbase versions, with virtually the same level of equipment as the previous 4.2 liter entry model.
The all-new 4.0T V8 is faster and more powerful than the outgoing 4.2 liter. Utilizing efficiency technologies such as cylinder on demand that convert the A8 from an eight-cylinder to a four-cylinder engine during highway driving conditions, it combines refinement with flagship performance. In order to avoid any unwanted vibrations or audible differences when switching between eight and four-cylinder modes, active engine mounts and active noise control eliminate any unwanted vibrations or audible changes.
While the 3.0T and 4.0T are available in normal and long wheelbase versions, the S8 and the A8 W12 are available only in normal and long wheelbase versions respectively.
