Customers in the Middle East have been enthusiastically placing their orders for the new Audi A8 since the middle of January 2018 and in only a few weeks, the brand with the Four Rings has already secured over a quarter of their 2018 allocation for their flagship model.

With strikingly stylish design, first-class chassis solutions, a touch operating concept and the electrification of all drive units, the fourth generation of the A8 provides the latest reference for Vorsprung durch Technik. The basic price in the UAE for the flagship is Dh357,000 (including VAT); the long-wheelbase version starts at Dh380,100.

The A8 signals the dawning of a new design era for the entire brand. It stands for sporty elegance, progressive status and sophistication. The front-end with its broad, upright Singleframe grille, the fluidly muscular vehicle body, and the rear with the continuous light strip exude a strong presence. The interior has a deliberate minimalist feel. Audi carries its high quality standards into the digital age with a revolutionary operating concept. Two touch displays located in the center slot almost seamlessly into the high-gloss black surface thanks to black-panel technology. The combination of acoustic and haptic feedback along with common touch gestures such as swiping make the new MMI touch response safe, intuitive and quick to use.

Its 3.0-litre turbocharged direct injection petrol V6 produces 340 horses and develops 500Nm of torque. It propels the A8 with its standard-fit quattro drive from 0 to 100kph in 5.6 seconds and on up to an electronically limited top speed of 250kph.
