The A8 L also comes equipped with Matrix LED reading lights, a contour/ambient lighting package, head-up display and a smartphone/Bluetooth interface.

Other standard fit items include adaptive air suspension and dynamic all-wheel steering, heat-insulating side and rear windows, a four-zone climate control system and ventilation for both front and rear seats.

Motive power for the all-wheel drive offering is provided by a 3.0 litre V6 TFSI mill with a 48-volt mild hybrid system, which captures kinetic energy and sends it to a lithium-ion battery. When fully-charged, this allows the A8 to coast with the engine off at speeds between 55 and 160 km/h for up to 40 seconds, aiding in saving fuel.

In this particular application, the EA839 offer 340 hp at 5,000 to 6,400 rpm and 500 Nm from 1,370 to 4,500 rpm, and paired with an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission, allows the A8 L to accomplish the 0-100 km/h run in 5.7 seconds and to get to a 250 km/h top speed. Claimed fuel consumption on a combined basis is 8.2 litres per 100 km.

Safety and driver assist equipment includes an Audi pre sense safety system that provides autonomous emergency braking, Parking aid Plus with a 360-degree display and surround view cameras, while the airbag complement includes front/rear side airbags and a curtain airbag system. Also on the kit list are items such as safety lane departure warning, lane change assistant including exit warning and rear cross-traffic alert.

      Maybe you’ve been to Mars for a while. They all moved to Perdanas when the new Accordana was launched.

    OMG, no wonder nobody buys Audi anymore. I rather get a S class or a BMw 740Le. So much cheaper.

    Pre reg BMW 740Le also now going for RM400k. Mileage like less than 5000km.

      Audi sales in Malaysia speaks for themselves.

      Their pricing model is getting more and more ridiculous.

    For the past one year or so, I haven’t seen any new AUDI on the road. Wondering Audi is still in Malaysia.

    Wait for one year, buy pre-registered maybe at half price.But then, the spare parts will cost you a lot and probably wait 6 months to arrive due to low sales.
