>>> Aerodynamics
Less drag, more efficiency. Thanks to the
consistently aerodynamic styling of the
vehicle’s lines, its underbody and spoiler edges
– in order to achieve the best possible form
for aerodynamic efficiency. Not forgetting tyres
with reduced rolling resistance. All tested in
the Audi wind tunnel at up to 300 km/h.
>>> Transmission expertise
Improved efficiency thanks to improved
transmission ratios. A higher torque output
makes longer ratios possible, especially
in higher gears. For excellent pulling power
at low engine speeds. This reduces fuel
consumption without impacting on performance
or sportiness.
>>> Lightweight expertise
Less weight. More savings, power and
endurance. Audi lightweight technology.
What started with lightweight body
construction has now made its way into
nearly all areas, combining innovative
materials such as aluminium, carbon
fibre and magnesium, intelligent design
principles and resource-saving manufacturing
processes into an overall concept.
>>> Recuperation
Braking that leads to even more efficient driving.
With brake energy recovery (recuperation).
Part of the kinetic energy produced when braking
and coasting is temporarily stored in the vehicle’s
battery and then used when accelerating.
Depending on the driving cycle, this can save
up to 3% fuel.
Audi ultra
Perfectly combined.
The future of efficient technology.
Building an Audi is an extremely complicated business. And yet a simple principle applies for all models: all vehicle
components interlock precisely in order to produce emission-reducing synergies. What started in accordance with this
principle at the end of the 1980s with Audi lightweight construction and the revolutionary Audi Space Frame (ASF®) is
now known as the reversal of the weight spiral: every lightweight component has an impact on other components, which
can in turn be made smaller. In this way, existing forms and materials are continuously being improved with regard to
their functionality, the lowest possible weight and their production process. With the goal of building vehicles that are even
more efficient and make more sparing use of resources. At the same time, more and more efficiency technologies are being
built into an Audi. These include recuperation and the start-stop system. Not to mention progressive, efficient high-tech
engines. For greater driving dynamics, high compression, more efficient combustion and lower CO₂ emissions. All this is
known as Audi ultra. Today and in the future – towards CO₂-reduced mobility.
>>> Engine expertise
Powerfully and efficiently driven. By Audi ultra
with efficiency technologies in the engine sector.
Such as Audi cylinder on demand and the Audi
valvelift system, which both reduce the amount
of energy consumed by the engine. Or clean diesel
technology, which can help to reduce emissions.

Audi Matrix LED headlights
Audi Matrix LED headlights
See well.
Darkness is relative. The optional Audi Matrix LED headlights turn night into day.
The all-new headlight technology produces a light colour similar to that of
daylight. Bends are anticipated to illuminate them more clearly. Other road users
are detected and the light distribution of your new Audi A8 adapts according to the
situation. This is all made possible by an array of sensors and a camera. As well
as dimmable LEDs in an innovative arrangement – which, incidentally, are quite a
sight in their own right.
Audi Matrix LED headlights won’t thrill you only at night.
The new lighting technology is quite a spectacle during the day,
too, sometimes appearing as light points, sometimes as a
dynamic light strip. Individually controllable LEDs. Perfectly
adapted to the situation in hand. Showing the way ahead.
An impressive sight, time and time again.

Audi cylinder
on demand
Every movement originates from something. Something that set it off, an idea. The
engines for your new Audi A8 can also be traced back to an initial spark of inspiration:
higher power with lower fuel consumption. These apparently conflicting aims are
reconciled in two revolutionary drive technologies: TDI® and TFSI®. Get acquainted
with both of them. And then opt for the drive system that you feel most moved by.
Even cylinder heads can be intelligent,
as Audi cylinder on demand proves.
Four of the TFSI engine’s eight
cylinders automatically shut down in
the partial-load range. This helps to
lower fuel consumption at the same
time as reducing emissions. And
without the switchover even being
noticed or impairing the driving
dynamics.
TDI®
With their combination of direct injection and turbocharging, Audi
TDI engines promise exceptional performance – thanks to their high
torque output over the entire engine speed range with constant
power build-up. They are renowned for being fuel-efficient and for
reducing emissions. But they are incredibly dynamic too – letting
you get the maximum out of any road.
The fuel consumption and CO₂ emission figures as well as the efficiency classes can be found from page 94 onwards.
TFSI®
Audi TFSI engines attain a particularly high compression rate. The
result: outstanding efficiency combined with optimum performance.
Substituting supercharging for cubic capacity has the effect of
considerably reducing engine size and weight – while performance
remains as impressively dynamic as ever. For power delivery that
will win you over from the word go.

The right driving force for every personality.
It doesn’t matter which Audi engine you choose, they all have high compression ratios, highly efficient combustion
and outstanding efficiency. In short, they deliver more power whilst using less fuel and producing fewer emissions.

The Audi TDI engines provide plentiful torque across
the entire engine speed range and deliver consistent
levels of power with the customary fuel efficiency,
whilst also producing fewer emissions. The 3.0 TDI

accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds.
The Audi TFSI engines offer outstanding efficiency
and improved performance whilst at the same time
retaining their dynamism. The 4.0 TFSI quattro in
the new Audi A8, for example, has a power output
of 320 kW, enabling the car to accelerate from
0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and reach a regulated
top speed of 250 km/h.

Your Audi is not just painted once.
But four times.
When you choose a paint colour, choose one that best reflects your own personality.
But regardless of which colour you opt for, you can count on the outstanding quality of
our painting process. Though no thicker than a human hair, the layer of paint on an
Audi is actually made up of four different coats. So not only do you look radiant in your
new Audi A8, the car is also optimally protected from environmental influences and
wear. For its entire lifetime.

Audi tests its wheels and tyres especially carefully, to be sure you have a good
feel for the road from the outset. Before a tyre can become an Audi tyre, it has
to undergo a series of tests. This is the only way of guaranteeing that each tyre
meets Audi’s high quality standards and is perfectly tailored to each specific
vehicle. It means you can be sure that both tyre and wheel offer maximum
quality, service life and safety. Whichever design you choose.

You have to suffer a little,
to be this beautiful.
When our experts test the quality of Audi wheels, they are just as innovative as our designers. Intense heat, high
humidity, strong sunlight – the number of possible tests is almost limitless. The most extreme endurance test,
however, is the copper accelerated salt spray test, or CASS for short. Here, wheels damaged by simulated stone
impacts prior to the test are then sprayed with this extremely corrosive solution over a period of several days. They
must withstand all these challenging conditions without any noticeable deterioration to ensure that, even after
covering many kilometres, you remain just as delighted with the design of your Audi wheels as you were on the
very first day.
The model-specific standard and optional equipment can be found in the index on page 100 onwards.

Valcona leather
high-quality leather which contributes to the elegant
charisma of the interior. The low use of lacquer allows
the material to breathe whilst the non-grained surface
underlines the sophisticated character. Tanned without
the use of chromium, dyed through and treated with
non-fading colour pigments
Natural leather
The natural characteristics of the leather and an
excellent seating climate impart a luxurious character.
Low use of lacquer and a non-grained surface. Over
time, characteristic signs of use create a typical patina.
Tanned without the use of chromium, dyed through
and treated with non-fading colour pigments.
Unicum leather
Unicum leather is an exclusive natural leather. The
leather is tanned using only plant extracts, is completely
dyed through, is not coated with lacquer and yet is
water- and dirt-repellent. The new combination of
tanning agents creates a special microclimate that
ensures exceptional moisture control. This method
enables the natural characteristics of the leather to be
shown off to their best advantage, the result being
excellent breathability, softness and an incomparable
natural feel. The typical natural features of the leather
and any surface irregularities are also allowed to
come through. A very special aura is created thanks to
the agreeable feeling of warmth, the exquisite classic
leather aroma and the natural feel of the material. Over
time, characteristic signs of use create a typical patina.

Not just any wood is allowed to adorn the interior of your Audi. The fine veneers
for the inlays are stripped from the trunks and so-called root burls. Normally, a
set of veneers for one car comes from just one burl or trunk to minimise variation.
The production process utilises both state-of-the-art machines and the oldest tool
in the world – the human hand, with some parts being crafted and polished
manually to give them a unique feel.

tiptronic
8-speed automatic transmission with Dynamic Shift
Program (DSP). Option of manual control via shift
paddles on the multifunction leather steering wheel.
Includes additional sport program
Start-stop system
helps to reduce fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions
by switching off the engine automatically when the
vehicle is stationary, e.g. at traffic lights. The start
process is initiated as soon as the foot brake is
released. Can be deactivated at any time via a button
Audi drive select
features different modes – comfort, dynamic, auto,
efficiency (not on the A8 hybrid and A8 L hybrid) and
individual – which allow you to change the vehicle’s
characteristics by adapting the power steering
assistance, accelerator and gear changing characteristics,
the adaptive air suspension and the settings of other
optional equipment. The efficiency mode shifts the
engine, transmission, climate control and optional
adaptive cruise control or cruise control to a better
basic setting.
Audi Space Frame (ASF®) body
The lightweight Audi Space Frame is an innovative
combination of materials featuring a high degree of
rigidity. This provides a high level of safety with an
agile driving sensation – and reduced fuel consumption.
The body is made almost entirely of aluminium.
Because every gram less extends the lead. New, highstrength aluminium alloys are used for panels,
castings and profiles and further reduce weight. For
the first time, hot-formed steel panels are also
integrated into the body structure in order to further
improve its function. They are located in the region
of the B-pillar.

adaptive air suspension
automatically regulates the vehicle height and
damping by means of the electronically controlled air
suspension with infinitely variable adaptive damping
system on all 4 wheels. Includes ride height control
and manual lift function; various modes can be
selected via Audi drive select
adaptive air suspension sport
The sport suspension based on the standard adaptive
air suspension has stiffer damping. Compared to
adaptive air suspension, the vehicle ride height is
lowered by up to 10 mm, depending on mode.
Electromechanical power steering
combines precision and comfort with exceptional
energy-saving technology. The electromechanical
steering system with speed-dependent steering
assistance ensures stability at high speeds whilst also
being light and extremely precise when parking and
manoeuvring.
Dynamic steering
When changing lanes, parking and cornering, for
example, this system improves handling and ride
comfort by dynamically regulating the steering
according to the driving situation. In addition to
adaptation of the steering effort, the steering angle is
also adapted (steering ratio). Also supports vehicle
stabilisation through ESC.
The model-specific standard and optional equipment can be found in the index from page 100 onwards.
quattro® with sport differential.
The electronically controlled sport differential
distributes variable amounts of driving force to each
rear wheel and ensures outstanding acceleration
performance in corners and stabilises the vehicle’s
response to load change; it also improves direct
steering characteristics and provides more agile
handling due to the lower steering effort required.
quattro®
permanent all-wheel drive with self-locking centre
differential and asymmetric/dynamic torque
distribution, as well as wheel-selective torque control
and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) on all driven
wheels
Active Noise Cancellation
can compensate noises from individual frequencies
depending on the engine speeds
Ceramic brake
delivers impressive braking performance. 19-inch
high-performance brake system with carbon-fibre
reinforced ceramic brake discs¹ and brake callipers
painted in high-gloss anthracite and featuring the
“Audi ceramic” logo at front and rear. Ventilated and
perforated brake discs with special cooling channels
Audi TDI clean diesel
In addition to the standard equipment with catalytic
converter and diesel particulate filter, the exhaust
aftertreatment system installed in the models with
TDI clean diesel leads to low exhaust emissions
and consequently complies with the EU6 emission
standard which comes into force in September 2014.
This technology significantly reduces nitrogen oxides
by injecting small amounts of the biodegradable
additive AdBlue® ² into the exhaust flow. The nitrogen
oxides are then split into nitrogen and water in the
nitrogen-oxide catalytic converter (DeNOx catalytic
converter). The separate AdBlue tank is refilled as
indicated by the information in the display of the
instrument cluster. We recommend having the
AdBlue tank refilled at your Audi partner.
Xenon plus
intensive illumination of the road, good uniformity
and range, both close up and in the distance thanks to
headlights utilising durable gas discharge technology
for dipped and high beam. Automatic-dynamic
headlight range control prevents oncoming traffic
from being dazzled. LED daytime running light strip,
all-weather light and headlight cleaning system
are integrated into the system.
LED headlights
allow precise, near-daylight illumination of the road
using LED technology. Combines dipped beam, high
beam, daytime running lights, indicators and static
turning light as well as an all-weather light to reduce
the risk of the driver being dazzled when visibility is
poor. Includes headlight cleaning system and highbeam assist. Striking light pattern in day and night
design configurations; low energy consumption and
long service life
Audi Matrix LED headlights
This innovative technology combines a camera system
with LED light sources and precision optics for highly
adaptive light distribution. The system blanks out
light that would otherwise shine directly on oncoming
vehicles or vehicles in front but continues to fully
illuminate all the other areas in between and alongside.
The front lighting thus adapts dynamically, providing
the driver with a much wider visual range. The
conventional division between dipped and high beam
is dispensed with. Familiar convenience functions such
as the static turning light, all-weather light, junction
light, motorway light and travel mode, which uses
GPS data to switch between right- and left-hand drive
modes are integrated into the LED technology. The
LEDs of the Audi Matrix LED headlights also perform
the cornering light functions. Using data from the
navigation system for assistance, the cornering light
function starts responding shortly before the steering
wheel is turned. The marking light cooperates with
the optional night vision assistant. If pedestrians are
detected, individual LEDs flash briefly three times in
succession to mark out the pedestrians clearly from
their surroundings. Distinctive features include the
crisp lighting pattern, the LED daytime running lights
and the dynamic indicators in the headlights and
rear lights.
LED rear lights
brake lights, tail lights and indicators, as well as
rear number plate lights in LED technology; faster
activation means earlier recognition by the driver
behind. Also included are 2 rear fog lights, reversing
lights in white and a 3rd high-mounted brake light
in the rear window.
LED rear lights with dynamic indicators
same functions as the LED rear lights, but additionally
feature a dynamic and quickly recognisable lighting
pattern for the indicators. The segments of the LED
light band are illuminated in turn within milliseconds,
creating a pulse of light that runs outwards in the
direction in which the car is turning. When operated,
the indicators send a distinctive, innovative signal to
other road users
Ambient lighting
anti-glare background lighting for the passenger
compartment in LED technology. Consisting of a light
band in roof module and light bands at the sides.
Lighting for door pockets, footwells, inside door
handles and door sill trims. Surround lighting for
centre console (floating effect). Brightness can be
adjusted in 4 zones, each with 20 dimming stages.

the range of the respective mobile phone network. Additional costs may be incurred when receiving data packets
from the internet, depending on the terms of your mobile phone contract, particularly when used abroad. Because
of the high data volumes involved, a data flat rate is strongly recommended.
The availability of the services supported by Audi connect varies from country to country. The services are provided
for at least one year from vehicle delivery. The traffic information online service requires initial activation in the
vehicle. From that point onwards, this service is subject to a 36-month usage limit (in as far as activation takes
place within 6 months of vehicle delivery; otherwise corresponding shortening of the usage rights).
Please visit www.audi.com/connect or contact your Audi partner for more detailed information about Audi
connect; contact your mobile services provider for information about contract conditions.
¹ Please note: the systems only work within system limits. They assist the driver with driving tasks. The driver
remains responsible for driving the vehicle and is required to be attentive. ² The navigation data for several

⁵ A vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions do not just depend on how efficiently the vehicle uses the fuel,
but are also influenced by driving behaviour and other non-technical factors. CO₂ is the greenhouse gas primarily
responsible for global warming.

The fascination of Audi
108
Equipment Audi A8/A8 L/A8 L W12/S8
Responsibility
Living up to our responsibilities is a principle that is
firmly anchored in Audi strategy. Alongside commercial
success and international competitiveness, our
responsibility toward company employees and society
as a whole is a key consideration, as is protecting the
environment and conserving resources. And what is
true in the details – our catalogues are printed on FSCcertified paper – also holds in general: Audi develops
cars that are not only sporty and emotive but also ever
more efficient. In the long run, Audi wants its products
to allow CO₂-neutral mobility. Seeing to it that
production in Audi plants gradually becomes CO₂-neutral
is another aspect of our comprehensive approach. Audi
is also committed to society – particularly in the fields
of education, technology and social projects. At Audi,
sustainability is closely linked with how we see the
future: the Audi Urban Future Initiative sees Audi
working with international experts to get to the root
of future urban challenges and trends in mobility.
Discover the world of Audi.
Choosing an Audi means choosing
a brand that offers more.
More individuality. More exclusivity.
More fascination.
Team spirit
The Audi experience
The fascination of Audi can be experienced in many
different ways. Audi City in London, for example, gives
you digital access to all models at their actual size and
in real time. And of course it is always worth visiting
one of the major motor shows. This is where Audi always
presents its new models and invites you to take a look
at how the future is being shaped with “Vorsprung
durch Technik”. Anyone interested in seeing how Audi is
already putting this into practice will find fascinating
insight in the “Vorsprung durch Technik” online special
at www.audi.com. But a look back can also be rewarding:
at the Audi mobile museum in Ingolstadt, history
and high-tech go hand in hand. A total of 130 historic
exhibits and state-of-the-art forms of presentation
make for a thrilling symbiosis. Plus, Audi driving
experience allows you to live the excitement and
countless possibilities of current Audi models. Here,
pure driving enjoyment is combined with valuable
learning effects. This is ensured by a team of specially
trained and highly qualified instructors who provide
practical tips to help you optimise your driving skills.
Motorsport is a driving force behind the brand. For years
Audi has been among the champions in various racing
series, for instance the 24 Hours of Le Mans or the
DTM German Touring Car Masters. The values that are
crucial in many different areas of sports are also central
ones for Audi: precision, passion and technology. No
coincidence then that Audi has been sponsoring sporting
www.audi.com
events for many years. In the world of winter sports,
for example, Audi has been the main sponsor of the
German Ski Association (DSV) for almost three decades
and has also partnered 14 other national alpine teams.
In football, we support national and international teams.
And Audi is also a partner for the German Olympic Sports
Confederation.
