The A8 Offers The Handling Of A Small Sports Sedan, The Sure-Footing Of Audi's Quattro All-Wheel-Drive System, And A Luxurious Cabin That Equals Some Of The Finest Cars Available.
The 2008 Audi A8 L W12 rests in a premier echelon of cars that combine extreme luxury with exceptional driving performance, cars that make it difficult to decide whether you'd rather be reclining in the back seat while a chauffeur drives or up there where the action is, with your hands on the wheel. The back seats tempt with a DVD entertainment system, power adjustment, and a refrigerator. The driver's seat offers control over the 6-liter 12-cylinder engine and superb all-wheel-drive handling for such a large car. All seats get treated to stellar sound from the Bang & Olufsen audio system.
The W12 engine in the 2008 Audi A8 L is kind of like two six cylinder engines set side-by-side and then mashed together. Each of the 12 cylinders gets 4 valves, making 48 valves in all. This is a complex piece of work. Each of those cylinders also displaces half a liter, making the engine six liters in all. The result is a very powerful but smooth engine. Fitting the car's luxury status, the engine operates quietly and with minimal vibration. But you feel it when you step on the gas, as the A8's W12 engine puts out 450 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 428 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. Audi claims 5 seconds to 60 mph.
With a base price of $120,100, most of the tech gadgets in the Audi A8 L are standard. But one option stands out: the Bang & Olufsen custom sound system, at $6,300. This stereo uses 14 speakers, each with its own amplifier, getting over 1,000 watts. There is a microphone mounted in the center console that constantly measures cabin noise and causes the stereo's digital signal processing to compensate. Two tweeters, what Bang & Olufsen calls Zink lenses, rise up from either side of the dashboard when the car is turned on. A subwoofer is mounted on the rear deck with full-range drivers on either side, and a center fill sits in the dashboard. The result is overwhelmingly impressive audio.
This A8 L is the long wheelbase version, as denoted by the L in the model name. That means the rear passengers get extra legroom. They also get full climate control, seat heating and cooling, and power adjustment. The refrigerator between the rear seats is an option. It comes with two glasses in the upper rack and a lower rack designed to fit two bottles. The rear-seat DVD system comes standard. It includes LCDs in the headrests, along with headphones and a remote. Our only complaint about this system is that the six-disc DVD player is mounted behind a panel in the trunk.
