Before the official world premiere, the new Audi A8 appears on the silver screen. The flagship of the premium brand makes a guest appearance in the blockbuster ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ in theaters worldwide in July. Therefore, movie fans will be the first to catch a glance at the luxurious sedan at the film premiere which takes place in Los Angeles on June 28.
The new Audi A8 proves itself a versatile performer on the road. Thanks to its active suspension, it provides comfort-oriented customers with a chauffeur-driven sedan offering a stylishly smooth ride. The enthusiastic owner-driver can relish the characteristics of a sports car. This flexibility is made possible thanks to the new active suspension based on the 48-volt electrical system, which is used for the first time as the main electrical system.
Audi is pressing ahead with the electrification of its drive systems across a broad front. In mid-2017, the new mild-hybrid drive vehicles (MHEVs) will start joining the product line. The next generation of luxury sedans, the Audi A8, will have them on board – in the 48-volt version – regardless of engine type.
Audi is writing a new chapter in its lightweight design success story. For the next generation of the Audi A8, an intelligent mix of four materials is being used for the first time in the weight-bearing body structure – more materials than in any of the brand’s previous production models.
