Packed with more power and luxury inside and out, Audi has just unveiled their new A8 L 4.0T Sport model into the brand's US line-up for 2016. Thanks to an enhanced 4.0T twin-turbo V8 engine, this year's model picks up an extra 15 horses over last year's, bringing its total to 450. Its exterior also received a more muscular make-over to match the increase in power, including a completely new lower bumper and reshaped rear, more prominent side rocker panels, and an overall more sport-driven shape with less chrome for a more commanding presence. This Audi A8 also boasts upgrades on the interior, with the Executive and Luxury comfort packages coming stock, which include 22-way Comfort seats with Valcona leather and a sporty diamond pattern stitch. An Alcantara headliner, panoramic sunroof, and acoustic glazing on the windows extends the high-end feel while new tech like Audi Side Assist with Pre-sense rear and an heads-up display assists with navigation. This new 2016 Audi A8 L 4.0T Sport is already available for order, beginning at $90,500.
