This week, Audi took the wraps off its 2016 A8 L 4.0T Sport model, a muscular variant of its flagship A8 large premium sedan that boasts a bolder exterior treatment with a panoramic sunroof. The new A8 L 4.0T Sport is powered by a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine that generates 450 horsepower. That’s 15 more horsepower than the previous A8 L 4.0T model. This bold, muscular sport sedan slots under the pricier S8 and is set to retail for $91,245 including $925 destination charge.
The bold look of this fast sport sedan is enhanced by a lower, wider performance stance that includes more prominent rocker panels and larger air intakes, according to Audi officials. There are fewer chrome accents for a sports car look. The rear bumper has been reshaped for a more dynamic appearance as well. In addition, 20-in. double-spoke wheels are standard with three additional wheel options, including 21-in. 5-arm wheels.
Audi’s driver-assist technology aids the driver when changing lanes and helps monitor traffic following the vehicle. The A8 L 4.0T Sport also includes a head-up display with navigation information. Audi’s adaptive cruise control with stop & go feature is optional.
