Audi has announced the addition of the new A8 L W12 model to the current A8 line-up. The new model is powered by a brand new engine that replaces the 4.2-liter V8. Along with the new engine, the A8 L W12 comes with enhanced interior options and standard Audi connect online car services. It is priced at $133,500.

This engine is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive and will sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in a time of 4.4 seconds.

The Audi A8 L W12 will be equipped with the highest level of
luxury available in the luxury segment, all standard for the vehicle. These features include 22-way comfort seats in Valcona leather seating surfaces with ventilation and massage functions for all four seats, an Alcantara headliner, 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, a panorama sunroof, rear seat entertainment, and Audi connect with Google Earth.

I wonder if what’s with its rear-seat entertainment that the articles were saying. Anyway, I’m so impressed with its powerful output of 500 horsepower, and even it only looks very simple I still find it attractive on that.

I don’t like much of this car seems so standard and traditional model. May be I’m looking for much improved and something that is more valuable and entertaining car.
