Outstanding levels of driver and passenger safety
The Audi A8 is one of the safest vehicles in its class. First, innovative Audi technology helps to prevent any kind of collision in the first place by giving you an immense amount of control in difficult driving circumstances. For example, the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) reacts in seconds to help restore traction. And Audi’s legendary quattro permanent all-wheel drive helps maintain grip and control – even when the car is being driven towards its limits or in adverse weather conditions.
If a collision does occur, the active head restraints’ innovative two-stage airbags offer protection and the third-generation Audi Space Frame provides additional strength and rigidity to protect the cabin’s occupants
Fully integrated system
Wouldn’t it make sense if your car knew the road you were driving on and adjusted its setup accordingly?
Imagine if the suspension could improve the aerodynamics of the car by lowering itself when on a motorway or ensure the gearbox was in the correct gear for a corner so it didn’t have to change down mid-bend. Maybe it could even switch on the corner lights to better illuminate a crossroads. Well the A8L can.
Welcome to the New Audi A8 L’s integrated technology.
A mobile hotspot
The Audi A8 L can be specified with a GPRS module to allow data transfer, allowing current news topics and weather reports to be downloaded to the car, even when you’re on the move.
This service includes a high-speed, UMTS module which provides three-dimensional satellite and aerial images, as well as photos and information from Google Earth to the navigation system.
This also allows a full-scale internet connection, making the Audi A8 a rolling Wi-Fi hotspot. Laptop users can even connect to the internet on the move and stream their music to the car’s audio system via the wireless network.
