Special features for 2011

The long-wheelbase version of the A8, the A8L, is now slightly longer than the BMW 7-Series, Lexus LS or Mercedes-Benz S-Class, bringing an exceptionally roomy interior. The A8 still manages to feel more nimble and responsive than would ever be expected for such a large vehicle. With its new, stronger powertrain, the A8 not only performs better but achieves EPA highway rating of 27 mpg--near the head of the pack among large luxury sedans. A number of other tech features, such as the industry-first full LED headlamps and the next-generation touchpad MMI interface inside, are market standouts.
Presenting more of an emphasis for interior space than any product in the Audi lineup, 2011 A8 L sedan provides an extra 4.2 inches of rear legroom over the conventional Audi A8. Receiving revised headlamps and other exterior design cues, the structure of the Audi A8 L adds more than 5 inches longer total than the typical 2011 A8, but only weighs 44 additional pounds. Unique to the Audi A8 L model is a high polish black lower inlay and a 4-spoke steering wheel design providing notably original interior experience. The Audi Convenience Package featuring keyless entry and an advanced parking system with rear-view camera is standard on the 2011 Audi A8 L sedan. Enjoying Audi's quattro all-wheel drive, 2011 A8 is powered by an enhanced 4.2 liter V-8 engine pumping out a commanding 372 horsepower. An option to the 2011 Audi A8 L is the executive rear seating package which features a power-adjustable, massaging rear seat as well as a 10.4 liter refrigerator.
