Audi and Italian furniture designer Poltrona Frau have teamed up for a special edition of the recently facelifted A8 flagship.

Changes are limited to the interior cabin which has received elegant aniline leather upholstery that has an Agatha cognac hue. It was obtained from Poltrona Frau and is characterized as being "particularly soft and natural looking." There is diamond quilting on the center areas of the seats while the inlays are made of fine grain olive ash natural silver brown.

This gray brown shade is complemented by the granite gray piping, stitching and central pleat of the seats. A similar granite gray shade can be found on the door top shoulders, steering wheel and on the instrument panel's upper section that has been wrapped in Nappa leather. Other changes include a snow white Alcantara headliner, jet gray carpeting and a cognac brown Alcantara for the rear shelf.

The 2014 Audi A8 Exclusive Concept will be available only with the 500 HP (368 kW) W12 engine and in the long wheelbase version. Production will be limited 50 units, with deliveries commencing next March.
