Hey comfortablywacky,
no he is not in competition with Mr Sami but he just likes space and after being pampered by the S class, nothing else will do.

Some more pics of the same A8. Looks good but does not seem to have more presence than the S Class. Audi should have got in the face-lifted A8 instead. Interior seems to be more luxurious and spacious than the 7 and S.

V12 dude,
I think we may know the same guy.
Here's a pic of his A8 in Goa -
Sorry, that is about it as other pics kind of blurred.
Courtesy Nokia 6630.
Oh and he got a red CLS350 for his son which was banged a few days after he got it.
Tried to take pictures of the CLS and A8 in the night but they came blurred.
Nokia has to improve its night mode.
But they both look STUNNING.
V12, how do you know him? When did you see the car?

There is a CAD $170,000 Audi A8L W12 parked in our VW showroom here. The car is FANTASTIC! Amazing presence. The new grille works really well with the Audi A8 giving it amazing personality and street presence. The car is sleek , sexy, its black in colour has 20 inch wheels, everything is powered, the seats give you a massage as you drive , there is a fridge in the back seat with glasses sporting the Audi logo, DVD players, navigation etc etc etc etc....
Did manage to sit in that car a few days back when someone forgot to lock it . Unfortunately, the next day onwards the car was locked so nowadays I can only ogle at it's exteriors. Keys are always kept in the Vice presidents office.

Anyone seen the silver plated Audi A8 in the UAE or something?
BUSA, the A8 actually grabbed people's attention more then the CLS.

Default Audi A8 spotted in Bangalore

Saw the brilliant black beauty of a car on a sunny (these days it is rare in bangalore) sunday morning traffic being driven by one of the industrialists in town. It was amazing.. It was a V12 with 12 spoke alloy wheels. Here is a pointer to give you guys an idea on what she would look like - Enjoy!

I beg to differ, it is a 4.2 V8 - was following it closely this morning- it has a KA-10 (chamrajnagr) registration
