The 2018 Audi A8 L is a fullsize sedan offered in a single trim, starting off at a base MSRP of $82,500. For that price, it mainly competes with the BMW 7 Series, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan, and the Jaguar XJ. The A8 L offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 3.0L supercharged V6 engine capable of making 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 420 horsepower-making 4.0L turbocharged V8 engine. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The A8 L reaches 60 mph from zero in 5.3 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 4.2 seconds with the V8 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the A8 L can manage a combined fuel economy between 19 and 22 mpg. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 10 striking colors the A8 L comes in really pull you towards itself.
