The luxury automaker Audi will unveil the new A8 this autumn and put the limousine on sale sometime in early 2010. So until the car makes an official debut, we will just have to settle for teaser images, renderings and speculations. This latest attempt at a mean joke was revealed at the German automoble manufacturer’s 100th anniversary celebration.
The only one that shows some sheet metal is a sketch of the car revealing the front headlamp and the LED daytime running lights. The rendering also gives a hint as to what the vehicle’s hood, grille and fenders will look like.
Although under that engine covering we are expecting to see a range of gasoline and diesel engines including the V12 used in the Q7 V12 TDI and the V10 that is going into the upcoming R8. The V10 engine will deliver up to 520 HP and the V12 TDI will have a maximum output in the same range except with 738 lb-ft of torque. Either way it should be enough to move the new A8’s weight saving aluminum space frame.
