A Week In The Gadget-Filled And Nerd-Approved 2011 Audi A8 Super Sedan
The 2011 Audi A8′s feature list reads like it’s out of a fantasy car: NVIDIA-powered multimedia interface on a retractable 8-inch LCD, Google Maps, night vision, touchpad input, front and rear radar. Then there’s the selectable drive modes, solar sunroof, dual rear-seat 10-inch screens, Bang & Olufsen sound system, rear power sun shades, LED headlights, taillights and interior lights, andÂ massaging seats with 22 points of adjustment. All this in a massive sedan powered by a 4.2L V8 mated to an 8-speed transmission that’s supposed to get great gas mileage.
Sadly the one just dropped off isn’t fully loaded with all the available gizmos. Our 2011 tester came sans night vision and the rear executive package, but that’s fine. It’s still one of the most technically advanced saloons on Earth. Yeah, I’m in love with its body and soul.
