A new design eraAn exciting new design language confirms the understated elegance of the all-new A8.
On the way ahead
Thanks to its luminosity and energy efficiency, LED technology is without a doubt on the leading edge of engineering services. Now it has been surpassed. And by a considerable degree: The HD Matrix LED headlights with Audi laser light, optionally for the A8, achieve 10 times the luminous intensity. Their bundled rays cast a piece of day into the night. The range of visibility is doubled with these laser spotlights in comparison to conventional technology. But it's not just a matter of seeing better: A camera system in the front panel detects light sources in theoncoming traffic and enables this area to be automatically dimmed. This means that oncoming vehicles will not be exposed to glare. The dimmed area can be controlled extremely precisely due to an increased number of illuminated segments. It will be smaller as a result - which also improves your view. All of this functions automatically of course, thus providing a further prerequisite for relaxed, comfortable, and safe driving at night. The HD Matrix LED headlights are optional in the A8, indicated by a distinctive blue X in the headlights.
The Audi Matrix OLED rear light in 3D design allows for a special lighting design for the new Audi A8, which leaves its distinctive mark. The OLED technology enables a homogeneous representation of geometrical shapes, which are infinitely dimmable. The new Audi A8 is unmistakable in the dark thanks to its LED luminaire in combination with rear lights in OLED technology, also highlighting opening and closing vehicle. It isn't just the design that is impressive - so are the gains for safety due to better visibility.
Aluminium Space FrameThe Audi A8 is built on the aluminium Audi Space Frame, helping to reduce weight and fuel consumption, while boosting agility and dynamics.
