Audi A8 Teaser Released

Audi will reveal the new A8 today but before the public unveiling, the company decided to give us another teaser with the car. Unfortunately, no details can be seen in the new photo but we already knew from the previous glimpses that it will feature daytime running lights. And that's basically all we know when it comes to the A8 but, once again, the official launch will take place today in Miami.

The A8 is likely to go on sale in 2010, with orders to become available soon after the first public appearance. It was initially believed that Audi will bring the A8 at Detroit Auto Show, while other sources familiar with the matter claimed the A8 will star at Geneva in March.

Some spyshots and unconfirmed details we got in the past few months hinted that the new A8 will rely on almost the same engine lineup with some modifications to make the cars more environmentally-friendly. 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.

“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 in mid-December when announcing the public debut of the car.

More information will be available later today so keep an eye on our news section.
