Default Photos: Face lifted Audi A8 L

Here are pictures of the first face lifted Audi A8 L which is now on sale in India.This car is in Mumbai. It gets new front grille treatment like that on the A6 and it just adds a lot of character to the car. A great improvement over the previous plain jane looks. The interiors and the wood finish is just awesome.The more I see this car the more I love it. Enjoy the pictures







The pics below are taken at night. Check out the LEDs . Awesome!!



Stay tuned for more on this baby soon....

The A8 costs 75 laks on road. About comparing the three, an S class Merc is too common, Yes the 7 series looks good I agree but you will only come to know the virtues and what the A8 really is after experiencing it. Wolf in sheeps clothing . Period

Interiors not that good....like the new neon lights on the door handles...and little upgrading has been done on the front grill.
Well even with these upgrades it still costs a fortune.....75 lakhs...not in my budget:(

It's simply awesome.Seen it in TRANSPORTER:2.

But wonder why it has a 6 speed automatic transmission and the smaller A6 has a 7 speed automatic transmission.
