What’s 2009’s Top Luxury Car? NADAguides.com Picks the Audi A8 L

NADAguides.com, a leading online site for vehicle pricing and information, picked the Audi A8 L as the No.1 choice in its ranking of the Top 5 Luxury Cars for 2009.

The editors of the Web site said the Audi A8 L topped its list ‘due to its ultra-luxurious cabin, complete wîth leather and wood inlays, and plenty of extra legroom for rear passengers thanks to its extended wheelbase.’ They praised the A8 wîth the 450-hp 6.0-liter W12 engine and Audi quattro for being extremely responsive on the road.

‘This car is a must-have for car buyers who want passion, prestige and power in one perfectly appointed package,’ the editors summarized.

‘What’s particularly gratifying about this honor is the compliment NADAguides.com paid to the exceptional driving capabilities of the A8 L, in addition to its world-class luxury appointments,’ said Johan de Nysschen, executive vice president, Audi of America. ‘The A8 embodies Audi’s drive to combine progressive features wîth exhilarating performance behind the wheel.’

Editors at NADAguides.com also paid tribute to the A8 L’s 14-speaker Bose surround sound system wîth Audiopilot noise compensation. That system includes a microphone that measures background noise and adjusts the radio volume accordingly, ‘resulting in a more balanced sound,’ the editors wrote. The 2009 Audi A8 L bested the Jaguar XF Supercharged, Mercedes-Benz S550, Hyundai Genesis and the Bentley Arnage.

The Benchmark of Premium Luxury: The Audi A8 Family

For 2007, Audi of America is offering an extensive range of A8 models wîth choices that offer customers added exclusivity and increased dynamic driving pleasure. The A8 family consists of three models: the A8 in normal wheelbase form, the highly acclaimed A8 L luxury sport sedan wîth its extended wheelbase and increased interior room and, the ultimate A8, the A8 L W12 wîth a 450 horsepower 12 cylinder powerplant. The A8 and A8 L now employ the latest in engine technology from Audi; FSI direct gasoline injection. Audi first introduced its all-aluminum frame in 1996 known as the Audi Space Frame (ASF ), which quickly gained the worlds attention and helped spread Audi s Never Follow approach. Eleven years later, the Audi A8 remains the pinnacle of groundbreaking technology and exceptional performance in a premium yet sporty luxury sedan. (concept carz) All A8s offer the benefits of having an all-aluminum frame, including rigid strength, and weight efficiency.

The A8 and the A8 L have a new, more powerful 4.2-liter V8 engine wîth FSI technology. This new direct injection technology helps increase power and fuel efficiency. The 2007 A8 and A8 L now produce 350 horsepower, a 15 hp increase over the traditional port-style injection 4.2 liter V8 used in previous A8 models.

FSI also increases fuel efficiency to 18 mpg city / 25 mpg highway. Both numbers are one mile per gallon higher than previous A8 models wîth port fuel injection. In addition, standard on both versions is a six-speed automatic transmission wîth Tiptronic.

DSP Dynamic Shift Program (selects from over 200 shift programs) which automatically adjusts to drivers driving style, and a state-of-the-art adaptive air suspension. The A8 L W12 is propelled from 0 to 60 in 5.0 seconds by its 6.0 liter, 450 horsepower 12-cylinder engine in a rare W configuration.

Supremely Equipped

The clean, classic design of the car s interior was designed to not only offer its occupants the very best in luxury, but also to guarantee its passengers the highest level of comfort. The superb craftsmanship of the A8 s interior is apparent at first glance. From its genuine real wood inlays to its beautiful Valcona leather seats and high center console, the interior design is the perfect combination of luxury and sportiness.

All five passengers enjoy unequaled seating comfort (or for more exclusive comfort, the A8 L W12 is designed to accommodate four in supreme luxury) Driver and front passenger are enveloped in ergonomic power seats that can be adjusted 16-ways and were designed for superior body contouring. Front seat heating, cooling, electrically adjusting lumbar support and front massage functions are optional (standard on W12). The rear seats can be optioned wîth electrically adjusting lumbar support as well (standard on W12).

An automatic four-zone heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system offering a separate control for all four outboard passengers is optional (standard on W12). The HVAC system incorporates indirect ventilation that provides a continuous exchange of cabin air yet prevents drafts. To be certain all this climate- controlled comfort is delivered efficiently and unobtrusively, the HVAC operating system itself has been engineered wîth refined acoustic properties.

Between the front seats is the first of two main components of the Audi Multi Media Interface, the MMI.TM The Audi MMI is an intuitive electronics control system that consists of a turn-and-push control knob surrounded by eight function keys. Audi MMI provides operation, adjustment, and control of onboard electronics everything from the sound system, and driver-selected suspension set up to the navigation system. The MMI command center is set in the center console behind the shift selector and forward of the center armrest within easy, comfortable reach.

Atop the center console near the dash is a seven-inch retractable color monitor for easy reference of MMI operations. A three-inch monitor in the center of the instrument panel displays basic operating information.

All 2007 Audi A8 models are equipped wîth the Bluetooth interface for mobile telephones, which can be operated through the multifunction §teering wheel or the MMI system. The standard voice recognition system can also control the Bluetooth interface, as well as, the CD player, radio and navigation system.

Riding on air

Audi engineers have given the 2007 A8 a suspension system that resolves the classic conflict between luxury and sport suspensions luxury being too soft for sport, and sport too stiff for luxury. A fully pneumatic suspension system gives the A8 an unrivaled combination of ride and handling performance. The Audi Adaptive Air Suspension system starts wîth an aluminum four-link front axle layout and a trapezoidal-link rear axle for responsive handling and precise §teering.

Air spring struts at all four wheels, wîth sensors to continually monitor and infinitely adjust the air strut damping, instantly and perfectly match the suspension response to ever-changing road and driving conditions.

The Audi Adaptive Air Suspension system also affords driver selection of varying ground clearance and damping rate to match the suspension set-up to road conditions and driving style. Self-leveling helps keep the A8 in steady equilibrium regardless of load. For those drivers wîth a particular passion for driving, a sport package is available on the A8 4.2 which expands the functionality of the Adaptive Air Suspension wîth a more aggressive Sport mode as well as 19 5-spoke alloy wheels (available wîth either summer performance tires or all season tires) and a multi-function leather 3-spoke §teering wheel wîth shift paddles. New for 2007 is a new 20 wheel upgrade for the Sport package.

The 20 alloy wheels, designed by quattro GmbH, are of the twin seven-spoke design found on the new Audi RS 4. These wheels feature wide 275/35/20 performance tires, and give the A8 model even more sporting driving characteristics.

Two powerful engines give the A8s their sovereign character. The 4.2-liter V8 FSI found in the A8 and A8 L uses a magnesium, two-stage intake manifold wîth dual air intake paths for better engine breathing across a range of rpm. Designed wîth proven Audi architecture including dual overhead camshaft (DOHC) and four valves per cylinder, this is one of the most powerful and yet most refined engines in the.

The Audi 4.2-liter V8 FSI pumps out 350 hp at 6,800 revolutions per minute, and 325 lbs. ft. of torque starting at just 3,500 rpm. This combination launches the 2007Audi A8 from 0-60 mph in a surprisingly quick 5.9 seconds. Top speed is electronically governed at 130 mph. The EPA fuel economy rating is an impressive 25 miles per gallon highway and 18 mpg city, for a combined 20 mpg.

The unique design of the W12 engine is the result of joining two narrow-angle V6 engines at the crankshaft wîth a 72-degree angle between the banks. Advantages of this engine design are three-fold; stronger rigidity, shorter length, and shorter height as compared to conventional V12 engines. The smaller dimensions of this engine allowed designers enough room for Audi s legendary quattro all-wheel drive system.

The principle is simple: in the same way that four brakes ensure better deceleration, four driven wheels enable better acceleration and cornering stability. Audi quattro all-wheel drive is the systematic application of this basic physical principle. The results of all this engineering are a staggering 450 horsepower at 6200 revolutions per minute and 428 lbs. ft of torque between 4000-4700 rpm.

More than 95% of the engine s peak torque is available between 2300 and 5300 rpm. All of this power — along wîth a six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, quattro all-wheel drive, and the car s lightweight aluminum construction — allows the A8 L W12 to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in a mere 5.0 seconds.


The six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission found in every A8 offers a choice of operating and driving styles. For fully automatic convenience, simply place the gear selector in Drive ( D ). For added performance, a Sport mode ( S ) delays the automatic up-shifts for higher revs and a more spirited acceleration, while automatic downshifts occur faster during deceleration for added control wîth engine-brake and low-end torque.
