Audi A8 2014 Model Coming
The 2014 Audi A8 luxury sedan facelift will be unveiled officially at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Before that, Audi fans will have the chance to see the car in advance, on August 21st when it shows its new look on the world wide web.
One of the new physical features that the new A8 will get will be ‘Matrix LED’ headlights. The Audi Matrix LED technology splits up the LED high-beam headlights into numerous individual, small diodes working in conjunction with lenses or reflectors connected in a series. Managed by a responsive control unit, they are activated and deactivated or dimmed individually according to the situation. This means they always supply high-precision illumination and achieve the maximum possible light yield without needing a pivoting mechanism. With this new Audi A8, each headlight comprises 25 high-beam light-emitting diodes, arranged in groups of five per reflector. When the light switch is set to “automatic” and the high-beam headlights are on, the system is activated from 30km/h on highways and from 60km/h on city streets. The Audi Matrix LED headlights produce a quality of light with a special crystalline sheen. By day, too, they have a very attractive and distinctive look, which is reinforced by the new appearance of the Audi signature daytime running lights. The 2014 Audi A8 will also feature slightly modified and revised front and rear bumpers as well as a revised grille and new exhaust tips and possibly an entirely new exhaust system.
This new Audi A8 will also carry a new version of the Audi connect internet services. Under the hood, this Audi A8 will be offered with a 3.0-liter and 4.0-liter TFSI engine as well as a 3.0-liter TDI diesel powerplant. The range-topping 6.3-liter W12 engine might not reach our shores. More information to come soon.
