The 2013 Audi A8 at Jim Ellis Audi Atlanta

The new 2013 A8 is designed to satisfy the most discerning driver who demands everything from a performance luxury sedan. 

Efficient Performance

You demand performance that is as intelligent as it is powerful. That is exactly what you will find in the new A8. A new engine lineup delivers the optimal blend of power and efficiency. A new V6 that feels like a V8 and a new twin-turbo V8 are added to the A8 for 2013.

3.0L TFSI V6 Engine
The 3.0-liter TFSI® V6 engine benefits from the combination of Audi FSI® direct injection and supercharging to create impressive torque generated over a broad curve, making full power usable at nearly any engine speed. Audi FSI® combined with supercharging allows Audi to achieve V8 power and torque with the efficiency of a V6. Peak horsepower of 333 is achieved at 5,500 RPM with maximum torque of 325/lb-ft reached at 2,900 RPM.

4.0L TFSI Twin Turbo V8 Engine
Featuring two turbochargers, this all-new Audi V8 engine generates a rousing 420 horsepower and 444 lb-ft of torque at just 1,500 RPM from just 4.0-liters of displacement, resulting in authoritative acceleration. To optimize efficiency, the start-stop efficiency system can turn off the engine at a standstill, while Audi cylinder on demand™ engine efficiency technology shuts down half the cylinders when cruising on the open road.

6.3L FSI W12 Engine
The engineers have now fundamentally reengineered the W12 and taken it to the next level in every respect. The result is a palpable gain in power and torque, coupled with improved efficiency.*  Providing 500 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, the Audi A8 L W12 accelerates from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds.

*0-60-mph times will vary from model to model. Always obey local speed and traffic laws.

Eight-speed Automatic Tiptronic® Transmission
Power is transmitted via the new shift-by-wire eight-speed Tiptronic® Transmission. With optimally spread gear ratios that produce dynamic acceleration, the eight-speed transmission also helps reduce fuel consumption by an estimated 6 percent when compared to a six-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to its innovative design and optimal gear layout, the weight of the transmission has not been increased over the previous six-speed transmission.

quattro® with Available Sport Rear Differential
Permanent all-wheel drive systems are not created equal. And they certainly don't perform that way, either. quattro is essentially a mechanical system devised around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts torque instantaneously to where it's needed. This means quattro is adjusting power between front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, helping ensure torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists. Under normal driving situations, quattro distributes the power between each axle by sending 40 percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels, enhancing the driving dynamics while helping maintain optimum control. Constantly assessing grip, quattro ensures the best possible combination of traction and handling, regardless of the road conditions.

quattro with Sport Rear Differential additionally senses which rear wheel to deliver an optimum level of torque. Specifically, it directs most of the power to the outer rear wheel to help steer the car through the corner. This reduces understeer, common among other all-wheel drive systems, and creates the true sportscar handling found in an Audi.

Aluminum ASF® technology 
Lightweight and rigid, the revolutionary aluminum ASF® technology offers class-leading weight savings - a benefit you will notice in the overall efficiency, enhanced performance and remarkable handling. It is why you can apply the words "precise" and "graceful" to a vehicle this powerful and athletic.

Servotronic® Steering
Handling is further increased by Servotronic® speed sensitive steering. The dynamic technology of this steering system varies the power assistance based on vehicle speed. At low speeds, the steering operates with a high degree of power assist and the steering is extremely direct, requiring minimal turns of the wheel from lock to lock. It is these flawless shifts of Servotronic® that add an extra layer of performance to the A8.

Audi drive select 
Progressive Audi technology flourishes with hundreds available vehicle handling and performance combinations thanks to Audi drive select. Whether you prefer the smooth, luxurious ride of Comfort mode or the more direct and firmer responses of Dynamic mode, Audi drive select allows you to tailor the vehicle to your liking. The result is a driving experience that ensures your A8 always performs to your preferences.

Adaptive air suspension
A8 handling is even more evolved with the standard adaptive air suspension. It's designed to react to driving forces nearly instantaneously producing a comfortable, responsive ride in any driving condition. Additionally, body roll and pitch are reduced by increasing damping through corners and under braking, resulting in a composed and responsive ride. For optimal personalization, adaptive air suspension offers four modes to select from, Auto, Dynamic, Comfort, and Lift. Depending on the mode and vehicle speed, the suspension can lower the body up to 1".

Advanced Braking
The new A8 has a braking system that is carefully engineered for maximum heat dissipation and low weight. All four discs are internally ventilated, with stainless steel pins connecting the front friction plates and brake pistons made from aluminum. This sport-inspired concept is new to the luxury class and saves up to 10.5 lbs. per wheel, and makes the brakes less sensitive to fading under extreme lead.
