Long wheelbase version of Audi A8 joins UK range

The first long wheelbase versions of the Audi A8 saloon have reached UK Audi centres

The first long wheelbase versions of the Audi A8 saloon have reached UK Audi centres. Available from £60,010 the five strong Audi A8 L range incorporates an additional 130mm of wheelbase and body length to provide exceptional passenger accommodation.

The Audi A8 L ranges includes a 3.0 litre TDI (250PS), a 4.2-litre TDI (350PS), a 3.0-litre TFSI (290PS), a 4.2-litre FSI (372PS) and a 6.3-litre W12 FSI (500PS). The Audi A8 L W12 can power to 62mph in just 4.7 seconds, and cruise at a top speed of 155mph. With the help of FSI technology, fuel economy belies these figures, with up to 22.8mpg achievable according to the combined cycle test which results in Co2 output of 290g/km.

Additional equipment includes heated outer rear seats, sunroof, deluxe four zone climate control and electric rear and side window blinds. All-LED headlights feature as standard in the Audi A8 L W12, as do features including a BOSE audio system linked to a hard drive-based ‘jukebox’ capable of holding up to 8,000 songs, the MMI Touch fingertip navigation and telephone data entry system and a suite of sophisticated online services.
