A 4-door luxury sedan that won the hearts of many customers, the Audi A8 was redesigned for 2005.

A new,single-frame grille inspired by the Nuvolari quattro concept, a revised interior for greater comfort and safety and new, more powerful engines with lower CO2 emissions - all were part of the new A8.

Both a short and a long wheelbase were offered, with the latter offering great comfort for the passengers in the rear seats.

The long wheelbase version was with 5.1 inches longer and heavier than the other, and wasn’t as easy to drive around town.

The A8 had an elegant look that didn’t shout any of the power given by the impressive engines.

The A8 came with several engine options: a 3.0-liter TDI that was the most recommended for its durability and power, a 3.2-liter V6, a 4.2-lite V8 with stronger performances and two powerful and refined 4.2-liter V8 and 6.0-liter V12 powerplants, the latter developing 450 hp.

A 4-wheel-drive system was offered and the power was transmitted to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The sedan came with air suspension that contributed to the comfortable rides the A8 offered.

The cabin of the A8 was refined, with great quality materials used all across. Leather upholstery was standard.

The car’s functions could be accessed by using the rotary switch between the seats.

Great trunk size was also part of the expensive deal.
