1995-2005 Audi A8

Our rating:
 9/10 from 1 reviewers.

For 1997, the new A8, in addition to being available in short and long wheel base forms, is available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive Quattro. The front wheel drive model is powered by a 3.7L V8 producing 230hp while the Quattro receives Audi's 4.2L V8, which produces 300hp. Being a luxury car, the A8 includes all the standard amenities seen in cars of its class like dual-zone climate control, real wood and leather interior, 14-way power and heated seats, and a premium Bose audio system. Audi's flagship received a few tweaks for 1999 with new colors and restructuring of option packages. The warm weather package was now offered with a solar sunroof that would allow the car to turn on the air conditioning or heating without turning on the motor of the car. Changes to all models included a regular sized passenger mirror in lieu of the small one that had been offered on all Audi's previously and a first aid kit located in the rear armrest.
The 2000 model year saw front-end re freshening with new, larger, clear headlights, a revised grill, and lower front valance with standard projection fog lamps. On the interior, the seats received a new, horizontal stitch pattern instead of the many vertical lines. Also, the 3.7 Liter front-wheel drive model was dropped leaving the 4.2 Quattro and 4.2L Quattro to continue on. The main difference between the two models now was the added 5 inches of rear legroom, a navigation system which was available on the 4.2, and heated rear seats.
