Audi A8: A New Dimension of Luxury
What would be your dream car? I’ll vote for the new steaming hot Audi A8. Audi has done a great job of converting a sports car into a family drive. The new ultra-high performance Audi A8 combines the time-honoured hallmarks of the best of the classic sports cars with futuristic construction, transmission and suspension technologies, all underpinned by the steadfast reassurance of the quattro four-wheel-drive system.
Mounted longitudinally directly behind the cockpit of the comparatively lightweight, 1,560-kilogramme aluminum-bodied Audi sports car is a high-revving V8 petrol engine delivering 420 bhp, and contributing to an exceptional power-to-weight ratio of 269 bhp per tone. Spinning freely to its 8,250 rpm limit, this acclaimed unit punches the A8 through the 62 mph barrier in just 4.6 seconds and, in the right conditions, can carry it on to a top speed of 187 mph – an unprecedented high for a road-going Audi.
Driving purists can choose a six-speed manual transmission to channel the 430 Nm of torque to the four driven wheels, but they may also be tempted by the racing-inspired R tronic sequential shift gearbox with joystick and paddle control, which uses ‘shift-by-wire’ technology to provide exceptionally rapid gear changes.
This car is already introduced in India. So, it’s great time for Audi Lovers. Take a look of this luxury salon…..
