The S emblem. Many impressive vehicles have been created by Audi bearing this emblem. A tradition that is seamlessly continued with the Audi S5 Sportback.
The art of progress. Beautifully expressed in visual form. In an exceptional vehicle. The new Audi A8 L. Awe-inspiring and sporty, while staying true to one clear principle: concentration on the essential. Not a single line without a function. Distinctively structured surfaces. Exclusive materials. All finished to a supreme standard. And aspiring to something very special - brilliance down to the last detail.
The sporty and efficient dual clutch transmission allows for lightning speed gear shifts without any noticeable break in propulsive power. Improved efficiency thanks to improved transmission ratios. A higher torque output makes longer ratios possible, especially in higher gears. The powerful torque in the low engine speed range reduces fuel consumption - yet has no adverse effects on driving performance and sportiness. The 7-speed, electro-hydraulically actuated dual-clutch transmission facilitates faster gear changes with virtually no break in propulsive power. In automatic mode, the driver can choose between the programs D (Drive) and S (Sport)
