The vital hurdles endangered a reserve and acerbity of a extra-large body, as good as a styling of a silhouette.

The Audi A8 L extended advantages from a low weight of a prolongation model’s body, that uses an Audi Space Frame pattern and is done roughly wholly from aluminum. For a built-to-order chronicle a engineers extended a side sills and core hovel regulating extruded aluminum sections. Inside a tunnel, these also support with a atmosphere routing. A double behind bulkhead separates a newcomer cell from a luggage compartment; a roof incorporates additional aluminum profiled tubes and cross-braces. These measures yield torsional and flexural acerbity roughly on a standard with a A8 L*.

The deputy XXL sedan in watchful light blue, lead offers 1.09 meters (3.6 ft) some-more wheelbase and altogether length than a Audi A8. To say a agreeable roof line, a whole physique from a A-pillar behind has been reworked.

The experts embedded a 2.40-meter (7.9 ft) potion quarrel in a roof skin to raise a clarity of spaciousness. The object blinds – one for any quarrel of seats – forestall overheating of a interior in clever sunlight. The headlights and behind lights incorporate tiny side pen lights, as is prescribed by law for vehicles of this length.

This propels a sedan from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 7.1 seconds and adult to an electronically governed tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). An eight-speed tiptronic transfers engine energy to a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate system. The 19‑inch wheels in 15‑spoke pattern disguise a stop complement of a Audi S8*, that assures superb deceleration of a over six-meter-long (19.7 ft) oppulance sedan, with a unladen weight of 2,418 kilograms (5,330.8 lb).
