The new A8 Audi 2012 continues to solidify the Audi brand in the luxury segment, both with its normal and its long wheel base iterations.

Not being the most popular choice doesn’t necessarily equate to not being a good choice, as a proof, consider the A8 Audi 2012. With its lightweight aluminum construction, standard all-wheel drive and impeccably trimmed cabin, the new A8 Audi 2012 has plenty going for it and stands as our favorite alternative pick in the premium large luxury sedan segment.
Completely redesigned last year and bolstered by this year’s introduction of the A8 L W12 with its 12-cylinder engine, the new A8 Audi 2012 might well become the Underdog of the class. The new A8 Audi 2012 comes in three trims: standard 4.2, long-wheelbase 4.2 L and long-wheelbase 6.3 L.
New for A8 Audi 2012 lineup, Audi introduces the 2012 Audi A8l W12, a work of craftsmanship and refined driving that is the pinnacle of Audi executive luxury sedans. The numbers indicate whether a V8 (4.2) or W12 (6.3) powers the A8 Audi 2012.
Both the 4.2 and 4.2 L models of A8 Audi 2012 come with a 4.2-liter V8 that makes 372 hp and 328 pound-feet of torque. The 6.3 L comes with a 6.3-liter W12 making 500 hp and 463 lb-ft. Both A8 Audi 2012 engines are matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission that drives all four wheels. Despite its substantial size, this is a quick luxury sedan.
In a 2012 Audi A8 Review, a standard A8 4.2 did the 0-60-mph sprint in 5.2 seconds. Audi estimates the 6.3 L of A8 Audi 2012 at just 4.4 seconds to 60. The A8 Audi 2012 fuel economy numbers are impressive for the V8 versions, which rate 17 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined while the Audi W12 2012 ratings stand at a more typical 14/21/16.
As expected, the L versions of the A8 Audi 2012 provide more room for rear seat passengers. In its long-wheelbase (“L”) form, the 2012 A8 Audi specs measures bigger than its German and Asian rivals, yet still weighs less than most of them.
When you factor this in with an automatic transmission with eight gears, the A8 Audi 2012 can make the most of its 372-hp V8 (or 500-hp W12) while also returning excellent fuel mileage. To provide the sporty feel of a rear-drive performance sedan, the A8 Audi 2012 all-wheel-drive system has a decidedly rear-biased power split.
