German manufacturer Audi released today full details and photos of the L version of the new A8. Coming with a body 130 millimeters (0.43 ft) longer than the standard-wheelbase version, the model will become the top version of Audi's flagship A8. The car is powered by a twelve-cylinder engine, with a more extensive range of engines to be released by the end of the year.

The current unit, a 6.3l FSI engine, develops 500 hp and a peak torque of 625 Nm at 3,250 rpm. The W12 powerplant is paired with an eight-speed tiptronic transmission.

The engine allows for a 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) acceleration in 4.9 seconds, while on its way to the top speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). The high-performance, high-output engine does however come at a cost: the unit consumes 12.0l of fuel every 100 km, or 19.6 US mpg (below the previous version, which ate 13.6 l/100 km).

On the interior, the A8 L in valonea leather, tanned exclusively with plant extracts to be soft and able to “breathe” actively. As an option, a panoramic glass roof with two glass panels is being offered. Two large monitor screens, one on the instrument panel and one on the center console, act as control centers and display their information as high-resolution 3D graphics.

Optionally, the MMI navigation plus with high-capacity hard disk comes with MMI touch can be used to cooperate with the assistance and safety systems, as well as with the usual navigation module.

The market release date and pricing for the new A8 L have not yet been released by the German carmaker.
