Audi launches A8 L W12 Quattro


Audi India launches the most powerful version of its flagship, the A8 L W12 Quattro. Powered by a 6.3-litre FSI petrol motor, this top of the line variant develops 500bhp and 63.73kgm of torque.
To distinguish the new W12 from rest of the A8s, this high-end variant gets single-frame radiator grille with a touch of high gloss black paint finish and special chromed horizontal bars along with chrome inserts on the air inlets and exterior mirrors. The exhaust system has two trapezoidal-pattern tailpipe trims neatly integrated into the rear bumper. The A8 L W12 quattro comes with LED headlamps as a standard fitment.
The new A8 L offers both luxurious ride comfort and sporty handling. It is once again, based on a virtually all-aluminum body/chassis structure, which combines high strength with relatively light weight (for its size).
The W12 sprints from 0 to 100kph in only 4.7 seconds and effortlessly reaches to its limited top speed of 250kph. The power is transmitted through eight-speed tiptronic gearbox. Gear shifts are performed electronically from an elegant yacht-style selector lever or at steering wheel paddles. The A8 L W12 quattro runs on 255/45 section tyres and gets 19-inch alloy wheels with a 15-spoke design reserved for this model.
Speaking on the occasion, Michael Perschke, head, Audi India said, “The addition of this powerful engine to the Audi A8 L range in India will further consolidate our position in the limousine segment. I am confident that all new Audi A8 L W12 will raise the bar and set new standards for luxury and engineering performance in India.”
The new Audi A8 is now available in three variants; a 4.2-litre FSi motor, a 3.0-litre TDi and now the 500bhp 6.3-litre W12 petrol variant. The 4.2-litre V8 TDI variant – the same engine that made the A8 a popular choice in the foreign markets – will also make its way to India by early 2012.
The new Audi A8 L W12 carries a price tag of Rs 1.26 crore (ex showroom Maharashtra).
