Meticulous craftsmanship is evident in the millimetre-precise accuracy of adjoining components. Fine materials complement each other perfectly, and customizable interior LED lighting technologyLED Lighting TechnologyLight-emitting diodes (LEDs) have a whole series of technical advantages over conventional bulbs, the most important being their activation speed and their long service life.LED Lighting Technology allows drivers to set the mood with 20 brightness levels and select ivory, polar or ruby colour schemes.
MMI® Touch is an information display and interaction system that lets drivers control multiple components. The touch screen allows drivers to enter a destination, name, or phone number by simply drawing the characters on the pad with their index finger.

Bluetooth®Bluetooth®Bluetooth® is the name of a group of wireless technology standards that allows different types of electronic devices to interact via short-range radio waves.Bluetooth® technology is also included.
The A8 3.0T takes performance and technology to a new level with its 3 litre, 6-cylinder engine with TFSI technology. High torqueTorqueTorque is what causes rotational speed to change. Just as greater net forces cause greater linear accelerations, greater torques cause greater rotational or angular accelerations.Torque , dynamic build-up, low consumption, and 333 hp make it stand above the rest.
The Audi start/stop system saves energy and reduces CO2 emissions by automatically switching the engine off when the car comes to a standstill, even for brief moments, such as traffic lights. A powerful starter energized by a heavy-duty, deep-cycle battery restarts the engine in a quick, seamless transition when the driver releases the brake pedal to engage a gear.
Quiet, convenient to operate, fast and responsive, the start-stop system is the best way to make efficient engines even more economical.
The aluminum bodyAluminum BodyThe Audi A8 is the first North American car with an aluminum body built according to the Audi Space Frame® principle. Aluminum Body components of the A8 3.0T offer many advantages. An extremely rigid body offers better handling and ride comfort, while the lower weight offers improved fuel economy.
Auto-levelling Audi Bi-Xenon headlights produce about twice as much light as comparable halogen headlights, while the adaptive technology of the headlights assists the driver in seeing better through curves. Also available is a full LED lighting system that includes low and high beams.
A comprehensive technology package of active and passive safetyPassive SafetyPassive safety refers to all design measures that help protect the car's occupants against injury or help reduce the severity of injuries in the event of an accident. Passive safety measures include the safety belt system, the airbags*, the rigid occupant cell and the crumple zones at the front of the vehicle. Passive Safety systems that help identify dangers in advance and automatically intervene. Includes auto seatbelt tensioners and window closers, on-board cameras and sensors and driver warning systems.
Through an electronically controlled suspension system on each wheel, the A8 achieves both a high level of ride comfort and sporty handling. Helps reduce roll or pitch movements when cornering, braking or driving on rough surfaces.
