Audi A8 W12

Posted on Sunday, April 18, 2010

Audi A8LAudi only in the beginning of this year has begun sale of new generation of model А8, and today there were first photos of extended "eight", and equipped already motor W12 which gives out 500 h.p. (earlier А8 had at the order only petrol and diesel units in volume of 4,2 l: 373 h.p. and 350 h.p. accordingly). Outwardly Audi A8L not too strongly differs from usual А8 though to notice distinctions it is possible without special pressure. "Long's" main advantages are hidden inside, after all car dimensions are increased by 130 mm. And all additional millimetres have been given rear passengers.

Total length Audi A8L makes 5267 mm. That is "eight" now is the greatest car among «a German three». Certainly, Audi A8L overtakes a Mercedes-Benz of S-class and BMW 7th series only on some millimetres, but for Audi and this advantage was important. Though A8L it is interesting not only the sizes. On the second row of seats in this car the present kingdom of luxury: smart armchairs with possibility of resetting and four programs of massage, 4-zone climate control, supports for feet, the liquid crystal monitor, the huge hatch and many other things (by request it will be possible to equip the car still with a folding little table for work, a refrigerator and other).

Under a car cowl can stand not only shown earlier 4,2-litre V8, but also motor W12 in volume of 6,3 l which gives out 500 h.p. and 625 Nm (the previous version of engine W12 had volume of 6,0 l, and its capacity equaled 450 h.p.). Thus the motor, despite volume increase, at once on 12 % became more economic – now it spends 12 l for each 100 km of a way.

W12 is capable to be dispersed from 0 to 100 km/h for 4,9 sec. only, and the maximum speed by German tradition is limited at level of 250 km/h. Extended А8 with motor W12 will be issued only in an all-wheel drive variant where 60 % of the moment are transferred to a rear axle, and 40 % on a lobby.
