The A8’s party piece must be its rear end which features arguably the best lighting sequence we have seen so far

“Like Wow”... that was my first impression as my eyes settled onto its glossy black dash. The new A8 is a very pretty car inside and out, styled with purposeful accentuated lines, giving the impression of lightness and strength.

2018 Audi A8 Front

The evolving face of the A8 also means that there is even less bumper now compared to its predecessors, and its new signature large hexagonal grille takes up most of the space in the front.

2018 Audi A8 Front Side

The current Audi design language is quite evident in their new car, and we love how the deeply pressed contour line, which spans from the front to the rear of the car, easily hides the bonnet shut line at the fender, and tapers inward at the front. Accuracy during assembly must be quite the nightmare for this one. Subtly flared wheel fenders, what Audi terms “Quattro Arches” delivers a little bit of visual girth at the wheels, and hints of the car’s four-driven wheels.

2018 Audi A8 Rear

There is a good deal of thought too in styling the car’s roofline, designers have kept with the sporty sloping side profile, while ensuring that there is enough headroom for passengers in the rear. At a little over 5.3 meters, the new A8 is 37mm longer than its predecessor. Its 3,128mm wheelbase too has seen a minor increase of 6mm, and is comparable to Lexus’ 3,125mm on their LS.
