The 2007 Audi A8L is an extended wheelbase version of its counterpart, the Audi A8. The A8L is a four door Sedan offering bountiful luxury equipment and top-of-the-line executive styling, making it a favorite in the Audi line-up among discriminating buyers. The A8L is powered by either a 350 horsepower 4.2-liter gas-powered V8 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with AWD or a 450 horsepower 6.0-liter W12. With a zero to 60 time of 5.8 seconds, the A8L comes beautifully equipped, including dual zone climate control, power accessories and heated lumbar seats.Read more Read less
The V8-powered A8 and A8 L get a more powerful and more economical direct-injection engine for 2007. Also, a six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and adaptive air suspension are now standard. A 20-inch wheel upgrade is also new for 2007. The 20-inch alloys, which follow the same seven-spoke design as those used in the RS4, are optional with the Sport package. Another new option is the Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System, a 1000-watt, 14-speaker, fully digital system. Of particular interest is the launch of Audi's S8, which uses a slightly less powerful version of the same 5.2L V10 engine found in the Lamborghini Gallardo.
