Audi A8 Premiere in Miami on Nov. 30
“Our claim “Vorsprung durch Technik” also embraces design, which is one of the outstanding elements of the Audi signature. And as top design has now emerged as an acknowledged art form, we see the bridge between art and architecture as a logical step in advancing our brand," Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG, said about the event.
The future A8 is believed to be offered with a similar engine lineup, but most units will probably undergo an upgrade to become more environmentally friendly and release less emissions. A 2.8-liter petrol V6 and a 4.2-liter V8 FSI will be available, while a 6.0-liter V12 TDI is also considered.
Overall, the car will be developed on an extended platform of A4 and will comprise lightweight materials especially employed to cut fuel consumption and improve engine performance. Aluminum and magnesium are two of the materials likely to be used on the next generation A8.
More information is expected to be released in the upcoming weeks prior to the public launch on November 30.
