The all-new Audi A8 will finally be unveiled in Miami on November 30th. Expect a well-desinged, proportional modern car packed with hi-technology and strong engines.
After shunning major international automotive shows, Audi has finally set a date and venue for the public unveiling of its flagship A8 sedan. The car will debut at the Audi Pavilion, a temporary museum structure in Miami's Design District on November 30.
In partly explaining the logic behind this move, Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG said: "Our claim "Vorsprung durch Technik" also embraces design, which is one of the outstanding elements of the Audi signature. And as top design has now emerged as an acknowledged art form, we see the bridge between art and architecture as a logical step in advancing our brand."
This is quite a pertinent development because it points to Audi placing the A8's design pretty much above all else, including performance, luxury and technology.
Nevertheless engines will play a major role as they often do with Audi. Expected in the line-up are V6 and V8 petrols, diesels and a new hybrid. There could even be a new high-performance model to finally deal a blow to the dominance of the Mercedes-Benz S63 and S65 AMGs.
