The last Audi A8 looked great but that might change as we slowly piece together the new 2017 Audi A8 model.
Although Audi has not revealed anything yet, spies have been spotting the Audi A8 running around getting tested. Based on the spy images, the guys over at auto express were able to come out with a new rendering for the Audi A8 and many believe that the actual production model will not stray too far from the design.
While the new design does not look bad, a lot of people seems to think that Audi took a step back when it comes to the design. Many of them felt that the older design direction was better than the new one.
Others think that although the design does not look as impressive now, they think that this design is more timeless and that it will still look good years from now.
The current Audi A8 comes with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine that will be offering about 333hp. There is also a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine that will be offering about 450hp. The vehicle will come with an all-wheel drive system and will be mated to an eight-speed auto transmission.
The top of the range Audi A8 will return about 18mpg in the city and 29mpg on the highway. It will need 3.9 seconds to go from 0-60mph and has a top speed of 131mph.
