Limited edition model based on the stretched A8 comes with a lavish interior.
If Audi’s recently refreshed A8 sedan is simply not special enough, then consider this limited edition model dubbed the A8 Audi Exclusive Concept. Based on the A8L W12 – the long wheelbase variant with the 500-hp W12 engine – the exclusive A8 is limited to just 50 units and comes with a significantly upgraded interior. Audi has upholstered the cabin in Agatha cognac-colored aniline leather sourced from the Italian designer furniture maker Poltrona Frau.
Diamond quilting features on the seats, while inlays are made of fine grain olive ash natural silver brown that blends beautifully with the seats’ granite gray piping, stitching and central pleat. The same granite gray features on the steering wheel, doors, and Nappa leather-covered instrument panel. Snow white Alcantara adorns the headlining, Cognac brown Alcantara covers the rear shelf, and the carpeting is jet grey. It’s unknown whether this luscious interior will come to the US, but if it does expect a sharp bump on the already hefty $135,900 price tag the US-spec'd A8L W12 carries.
