Next-gen Audi A8 caught undisguised

Next-gen Audi A8 caught undisguised

After previously being spotted in March this year, Audi’s A8 has popped up once again on public roads, this time in Europe. 

However, unlike the previous instance where the car was completely wrapped up, this sighting shows the car with just some black tape concealing sections of the grille, bumper, head lamps and tail lamps. Sources also confirm that the next-generation A8 will be based on the MLB Evo platform which will share components with the Audi Q7, and the group’s Bentley Bentayga. Despite the use of aluminium, magnesium, strengthened steel and carbon-fibre reinforced plastic in the body, Audi confirmed that the new car’s body will weigh 50kg more than the present A8’s body.

Reports add that power for the new car is expected to be sourced from a series of V6 and V8 motors in both petrol and diesel disguise, with an added option of the acclaimed W12 petrol powerhouse. Sources even suggest that a plug-in hybrid motor could find its way to the line-up eventually. A lot is riding on the design of the new A8 since this is the first Audi car to be developed under the supervision of the brand’s latest head of design, Marc Lichte. 

Stay tuned for more information in the months to come as Audi will unveil the car at the Summit in Barcelona on July 11th.
