As the name-maker in the Audi lineup, the A8 certainly doesn’t disappoint. The 1-year of included maintenance is a bonus, but such a fine-tuned machine will only require oil changes during the first year (unless you pound 20,000 miles on it commuting). Responsive all-wheel drive system (Quattro) delivers pristine and smooth handling, even over the bumpiest of terrain. Its aluminum frame adds some serious torque (328 lb-ft), with a 4.2-liter direct-injected V8 that offers an impeccable 372 horsepower (upgradeable to W12 with 500 hp). Corrective and dynamic steering even has a built-in collision control that includes thermal and night vision imaging for the driver with pedestrian avoidance system. Alloy complemented interior trim with an uncountable array of features – including digital guidance system, touchscreen with GPS and voice reactive computer – earmark the refined splendor offered by this full-sized elitist sedan. The standard 4 year/50,000 warranty can be upgraded, but is enough to offer peace-of-mind for at least 60 months… until you trade it in to get the next big thing.Read more Read less
