What’s the Buzz with Audi 8 Luxury Sedan?February 2, 2010
The 2011 Audi 8 won’t be released until late 2010 but it has already generated a lot of buzz and excitement from car aficionados. The 2011 Audi 8 is the fourth generation in its class of luxury sedans. It has a 372 hp 4.2-liter V8 engine with eight speed transmission, and an all wheel drive. With a price tag of $75,000, this car is competing at the level of the BMW 7-series, Lexus LS460, Jaguar XJ/XJL, Mercedes Benz S-class, and the Maserati Quattroporte. In this class, it is deemed as the sportiest sedan as its design incorporates a low center of gravity and low roofline. These features were not compromised despite the extra two inches in length, width, and wheelbase.

It has the latest in high tech innovations for safety, which includes a night vision assist that detects pedestrians nearby and a speed limit display. Another safety feature is the full LED headlights which makes it stand out even in the daylight. In nighttime, it is even more distinctive and easily visible to other drivers on the road.
