2012 Audi A8 W12

3/94 Submission of aluminum sedan with 2.8-liter V6 and 4.2 liter V8 engines

4/97 Presentation of the 2.5 V6 TDI, 150 hp, six-speed manual gearbox

11/98 facelifts, modified grille and headlights, improvements to the car, 3.7 V8, 230 and 260 hp, 4.2-liter with 310 hp

10/99 New 3.3 V8 TDI turbodiesel with 225 hp

11/00 New 6.0-liter W12 with 420 hp drive and 4-wheel

10/02 Change model Audi A8 was the first aluminum body.

The technical package is quite heavy. Actually aluminum body had to bring advantage against competitors from luxury class in terms of weight. Customers want another: Prefer 4.2-liter 8-cylinder engine with 300 hp in the S8 and then up to 360 hp and this in combination with the optional heavy drive 4-wheel.

Well sold and proposed in 2000 with 420 hp W12 Less demand versions of the A8 were V6 and V8 TDI, and the smaller V8 petrol 3.7 liters. Front-wheel drive versions offer better comfort than traditional hard suspension Quattro, which are rather sporty alternative in the highest class. In A8 can be a winning strategy to look weaker motors. They have very good characteristics for better comfort and better prices.

Comments from owners of Audi A8

Do your current car. Will bring into the adventure.
Not to mention that makes me doubt 2000. have with this engine. In VW certainly not, but Audi and I doubt. If it is in very good condition with service records – yes, but otherwise is quite risky. Maintenance alone – not even a reference to VW PASSAT.

2010 Audi A8

Engine is not so terrible to repair the gearbox is important and try very simply: a car going uphill, stop and then drop the brake if the car is not rolling back the box is in very good condition, you leave behind a car that you do not need .
My opinion is that the Tiptronic is preferable to multitronika in terms of strength. success in dilemma, but just browse and sravnyavai Audi A8 – not the same class.

If so many to be wound such Audi with this bike, at least you get 163 hp At least they have them for the real thing. A new year, therefore more expensive, but at least you’ll know you got the real thing. It is like the A8 would probably want to be automatic. And there are many careful that everybody is complaining decelerated for some mysterious, pickup, etc.

Here are some prices for parts 3.3TDI flowmeter two pieces one at 314 euros, a oil pump is an electronic component that constantly breaks down and costs € 900; often call my colleagues from somewhere tdi parts for this because there are cheap.

Audi Audi has to .. but apparently these particular models are not their most successful .. I took it but if I break every other day with 800 to 900 euro repair does not make sense to shuffle. I was told that BMW is better in terms of quality of the Audi A8 2.5 TDI, but I do not like all that much in appearance …
