2014 Audi A8 spied testing in Pune

2014 Audi A8 spied testing in Pune

The 2014 Audi A8 has been spied testing in Pune by our friends at PowerDrift, making it the second instance to be caught on camera. Few days ago, the same car was seen testing on the streets of Mumbai. The 2014 version of the flagship sedan from the German manufacturer is likely to be previewed on August 21 but will officially debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The 2014 Audi A8 is more of a cosmetic and technology upgrade to the existing car with the mechanical parts likely to remain untouched. One of the major updates to the car is the matrix LED headlights- a first of a kind feature on any car. What these does is, you can drive the car with high beam on all the time and at the same time it won’t blind the oncoming driver. The camera on the car automatically detects the oncoming vehicle and the Matrix system dims the LEDs shining on the vehicle and eventually shuts off completely as the car approaches.  This is a great feature for any country but adds lot of value on Indian roads, where driving with high beams all the time is a common phenomenon.

 

Unfortunately, Audi won’t be able to sell this new technology in US due to a regulation from 1968. The new A8 is also expected to get updated front bumpers and tailgate with few changes in the interiors. We will know the exact changes later this month and will be able to see this car in India by the end of this year. In run-up to Frankfurt Motor Show Audi has teased a video of the new car that divulges – well nothing much really, but check it out for yourself here.
