The Audi A8 L sedan 2016 edition is already a long model measuring at an exorbitant 17.3 feet in length and offers enough headroom for every passenger on board.
However, there seems to be a special customer who wanted a larger limousine for which Audi has agreed to build one.
After working for enough days in the research and development team, the engineers have arrived at the custom built model named the A8 L Extended Edition. The overall length of the limo has been improved by significant numbers and it is definitely not an easy task to drive it around on all roads. But, for a European customer who can afford to buy his own Audi custom car, this shouldn’t be a problem. The exclusive model is measured at 20.9 feet.
While it is easily the largest car in the Audi lineup, there are still models much longer like the Mercedes Maybach Pullman measured at 21.3 feet. There’s another one, the Bentley Mulsanne Grand Limousine measured at 21.6 feet. Both these sedans are large in their own respective. Audi in their official statement added that they have a dedicated team spend a whole year designing the model. The wheel base is now stretched by 13.8 feet and all six passengers inside the limousine will have individual seats of their own.
Despite the vehicle being really large with a huge platform and wheelbase, the customer who exclusively ordered the model from Audi opted to power it using a 3.0 liter V6 engine with supercharged capability. The engine is capable of rendering 306 horsepower coupled with 325 lb feet of torque. The car uses an eight speed automatic transmission system and uses an all-wheel driving system. It is not designed to be a sporty model but rather a comfort and commuter friendly limousine for the buyer.
The total weight of the particular model is definitely much larger when compared to most other sedans. It is weighed at 5300 pounds and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 7.1 seconds. The limo is hefty in size and weight. Controlling the model when it is moving at a top speed is made easy with the help of the braking setup found in the S8.
The 2016 Audi A8 L Extended Edition uses a 7.9-foot panoramic glass roof and has a rear entertainment system to keep all passengers entertained on the go. There is a cooled storage box and the seats are made using super soft Valcona material for added comfort.
