Meet the classic example of Audi’s all-embracing excellence — the A8 L. The sedan’s sporty and yet elegant constitution is amply evident in its energetic design. The interaction between every inch of its surface, line, and volume is distinguished by poise and finesse. The A8 L’s steady exterior is accentuated by its coupe-like roofline that defines a flowing contour. Its surfaces, an antithesis of its clean-cut lines, boldly exhibit an overall equilibrium. The sedan also flaunts flawlessly balanced proportions. The car’s sharply chiselled front end, comprising the hexagonal Singleframe grille, boasts an abundance of detail. The horizontal double bars bring attention to the A8 L’s width whereas the free and easy use of chrome highlights its luxurious character. The engine hood’s four creases run on all the way to the inside corners of the headlights and the upper edges of the Singleframe grille. Besides that, its front apron is home to air inlets that are enclosed in chrome clasps and extend across its front’s width. The flat and wide headlights receive a set of daytime running lights that borders both its upper and lower edges. All except one A8 L variants receive LED headlights that use light-emitting diodes for all functions.
The Audi A8L offers an equally ravishing view from the sides. The profile is sporty and appears flexed. The tornado line below the windows runs tightly above the wheel arches to bestow the car with a powerful presence on the road — a typical Audi trait. The sedan’s rear is a breath-taking view to behold. It is essentially a stunning interpretation of the spectacle that is an athletic luxury sedan that is visually extended by the spoiler lip. The flat rear lights are linked by the means of a chrome strip that also extends into them. Furthermore, the rear lights also receive all LED technology with 94 individual diodes per unit.

The clearly defined lines from the exterior design have been carried over into the cabin, a broad arch enclosing the cabin, better known as the ‘wrap-around’, continues to be its most notable trait. The wrap-around encircles the lean instrument panel, consequently strengthening the sense of space in the sedan. The instrument panel looks like a gentle wave with its width being highlighted by horizontal lines. The ambient lighting that includes LEDs, light guides, light strips and the indirect illumination of the centre console, endows the cabin with an inspired undertone.
