2015 Audi A8

These large-footprint premium sedans have very outspoken fan clubs, for at this scale a company's design logic is laid out big on the table for all to dissect. Speaking for myself, I am an Audi A8/Volkswagen Phaeton kind of person. I absolutely enjoy the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class and have a certain weakness for the BMW 7 Series, but it's the A8 in this class that yanks me by the ear lobe. The large Japanese models, Jaguar XJ and Hyundai Equus are great work, and the newer Cadillac XTS is good stuff, but I'll still take my A8. The 2015 model is a mid-life updo for the A8 (and S8), and it... Read More

    Confirmed: Audi promises next A8 on sale by year's end, LED Matrix lamps to be available [w/video]
    1372618860

    Audi has just released details about its new Matrix LED headlamps, but just as illuminating as the new lighting technology is confirmation that the next A8 will appear "on the market at the end of 2013." While Audi is calling the model new, expectations – and the spy shots above – suggest more of a traditional mid-cycle refresh. Audi says ...

    Spy Shots: Audi A8 facelift on the way
    1369338300

    The coming Audi A8 has already been spotted in camouflage on public roads at earthly elevations, and now our snappers have caught it at elevation in the Alps. The evolution will entail modified head- and taillights, different sculpting for the grille and a new bumper profile said to be more in line with the A6 S Line. Inside, there might also be ...

    Spy Shots: 2012 Audi S8 brings genteel muscle
    1311865020

    It's been several months since Audi unveiled its latest A8 flagship sedan, and you know what that means, boys and girls: that's right, a new S8 is almost upon us. The performance version of the luxury limousine has been spied undergoing what looks like final testing, given a lack of camouflage or body cladding on the test mule snapped in our high-res ...

    Audi S8 leaked? Nope, it's a 'chop
    1273505340

    With an all-new Audi A8 arriving in the coming months, a higher performance S8 can't be far behind. This particular image originated from a reader on the World Car Fans forum, but it certainly looks plausible. The wheels are straight off the R8 V10 and the front fascia is an evolution of the look we've seen on S and RS models from Audi for the past ...

    Spy Shots: More LA-based pics of the mystery psychedelic-wrap Audi
    1258063080

    "Whatever it may be, I like it!" So says Autoblog commenter P.V. concerning a mysterious series of camoflaged Audis that have been popping up all over the place (this one was caught again in Southern California). We tend to agree. In fact, we feel this way about most new Audis -- especially since Walter de'Silva took over the design reins. While it may ...

    VIDEO: Are you the 2011 Audi A8? Or are you the 2011 Audi A6?
    1257949800

    Well, is it? Hard to say. We do know that both a new Audi A8 and A6 are headed our way sooner rather than later. Sooner, as in the South Florida International Auto Show for one of the new Audis, and/or Geneva for the other. We're pretty sure that the car captured in the video you'll soon be watching after the jump is the same sedan wearing the BMW-style ...

    Reader Spy: Next-gen Audi A6 caught in So-Cal... or is it an A8?
    1253574000

    It's no secret that Audi will be introducing new versions of both of its biggest sedans in 2010. Redesigned iterations of the A6 and A8 are coming, with one possibly appearing at the Detroit Auto Show in January and the other likely to drop in Geneva. Thankfully, another of our ever-alert readers happened to catch one of them racking up durability miles ...

    Spy Shots: 2010 Audi A8 is met by the sculptor's rasp
    1252760700

    The evolution of any Audi is a study in subtlety. The evolution of the A8, even by Audi standards, has been especially delicate, going from brazen lozenge to the softly curved – and elegant – geometric form it is today. There is nothing sculpted about it, and perhaps the most notable styling element the entire time has been the sedan's gaping ...

    Is this the new Audi A8?
    1249829160

    Over the past few days, we've received a number of tips about the new Audi A8. First was a report from Inside Line about Audi's top-tier sedan not making it to Frankfurt next month, and it was accompanied by renderings of a swoopy silver sedan (at right). Yet we couldn't figure out if that image, from Fox Syndication, was really the A8 that is said to be ...

    Forum find: 2010 Audi A8?
    1222625220

    Click above for a gallery of possible 2010 Audi A8 imagesThe Audi A8 is understated and elegant...but its design is a little long in the tooth. It stays as is for model year 2009, but a significant revision is due for 2010, and we should expect to see that car unveiled sometime during the upcoming show season. Thanks the Gulf4Cars forum, we might have our ...

    Spy Shots: 2009 Audi A8
    1169593320

    At first glance, you'll hardly be able to tell a difference between the 2007 Audi A8 and the testing mule you're staring at here. The most obvious differences are the extra-wide fenders flares on the mule. Nevertheless, this is the next iteration of the A8, which will also sport some mechanical upgrades when it debuts in 2009. Audi will be looking to make ...

    Spy Shots: Audi A5 coupe
    1159228860

    Fourtitude has nabbed some spy shots of the upcoming Audi A5 wearing original skin for the first time, and clearly its design will be the spitting image of the Nuvolari concept that appeared at the 2003 Detroit auto show. The A5 also looks like it will be a longer, more accommodating coupe than the TT, which can be cramped for those who are gifted in ...

    Audi readying A8 to do battle with BMW and Porsche
    1147461660

    The Car Connection's deep pockets have again paid for a couple good spy shots, this time of the next generation Audi A8 due out at the end of 2009. Reportedly three inches longer than the current A8, the next gen model will feature V12 diesel and V10 gas powerplants. The next A8 needs to be at the top of its game since it will meet the next gen BMW 7-Series ...
