Audi revealed the first video for the 2011 Audi A8L W12 that made its world debut at the Beijing Auto Show in April 2010.

The promotional video provided by Audi shows the Audi in its entirety. The video allows the viewer to see the interior up close and personal as the camera zooms in. The Audi A8L W12 has a longer wheelbase with an extra 130mm of legroom which is clearly illustrated as the gentleman in the video stretches out his long legs in the back seat. Of course, we know how well Audi does with its videos considering the mini-series they have created with Justin Timberlake and Dania Ramirez which stars their newest hatchback, the Audi A1.

Back to this Audi. The Audi A8 L W12 uses a twelve cylinder engine that consists of four rows of three cylinders with a 15-degree included angle between the two offset rows of cylinders in each broad cylinder block. The engine is primed to deliver 500 hp and 460.98 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 rpm. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, while top speed remains limited to 155 mph.

Well, I think it would be better to less consider this car since there are a lot of newer Audi car version that is out in the market. With the speed performance of this car it will makes the car run like a rocket.

Everything about it is just perfect especially the gold paint job! And I like the fact that it spacious and it uses a w12 technology for the engine. However, I don’t think that a luxury vehicle needs more than 500 hp.

The headlights imitate the eyes of old people who will buy this car. Like driver, like car. Just like the Honda commercial.

Well having a heavy engine requires also a good suspension... A8 is a perfection done by the Audi.

What the heck! A 12 cylinder engine. Pretty sure audi has a good reason to replace and enhance it’s front suspension.
