An Audi A8 it is usually priced at $68.000, so why would someone pay 520.000 euro ($680.000) for it? The Audi A8L was specially built for German politician Edmund Stoiber.
And still so what if the owner is a politician, why $680.000 for it? Because the armour-plating offers ballistic protection against hard-core bullets up to 7.62 millimetre calibre. After building it Audi made tests with hand grenades and explosives and proved that the floor plating is able to withstand blasts from below.
The new Audi A8 security is certified to the highest bullet-proofing classes B6+ and B7 (European standard).
