Audi has released a fresh promotional clip for its all-new A4, this time showing off the optional digital instrument cluster.

The A4 is Audi's best-selling model so it shouldn't come as a surprise their marketing department is working around the clock to prepare promotional content for the all-new B9 generation. A while back we saw the optional matrix LED headlights and now the company with the four ring logo is demonstrating the fancy digital instrument cluster known as the Audi Virtual Cockpit.

Already available in other models such as the TT, Q7 and R8, the digital display costs an extra €500 and replaces the analog dials with a 12.3-inch LCD monitor that has a 1,440 x 540 resolution and provides a smooth 60 fps experience thanks to its powerful graphics processor. Audi promises the virtual needles are extremely precise and the driver will have the possibility of choosing between two modes that are selectable by using the "view" button mounted on the steering wheel.

In infotainment mode, there's a large central window showing off navigation map or lists with data from radio, audio and telephone. When classic mode is selected, the tachometer and speedometer are displayed in just about the same size as the conventional dials and are divided by a smaller central screen to mimic the analog look.
