Audi A8 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Audi A8 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, A8 zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing A8 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Audi A8 engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

For 2019, the Audi A8 has been refreshed and stays mostly unchanged for its basic options and technical features for 2020. The best news is that a new V6 hybrid plug-in is included. It gives a total of around 17 km of the electric range that allows you to save gasoline if you charge the battery regularly. Interestingly enough, it is equally efficient as the top-dog V8 engine of the A8 too.

The hybrid V6 alternative's inclusion allows the A8 to be competitive with other leading sedans, including the BMW 7 Series and the Mercedes-Benz S class, which have their hybrids. Audi offers even the sporty S8 sedan as a separate model if you want even more productivity.

At this stage, a car's features should be virtually transparent and offer passengers a real luxury car experience. But the A8 obtains more possibilities from optional summer tires instead of a well-rounded approach. The A8 with the base V6 is certainly not slow, but it can't do much more in the power department. Upgrading to the V8 or hybrid plug-in is suggested.

The A8 even seems to be a little numb and awkward in ways where you would not suspect it. Our panic-stop checks revealed the brakes successfully, but they were jumpy in traffic, and it was challenging to stop smoothly. When we needed it, the transmission even slowed to downshift. Overall, the A8 is fine and has possibilities for improvement. The 2020 A8 is available in three well-equipped levels, differentiated by an engine option.
 

The only A8 sold in the U.S. is the A8 L. All three models of Audi A8 have the same opportunities – LED headlights, smartphone connection to Android Car and Apple CarPlay, adaptive air suspension, audio system Bang & Olufsen, and a panoramic sunroof. The 55 TFSI works on a 3.0-liter V6-powered (335 hp, 369 lb-ft) and has all-wheel steering, matrix LED headlights, acoustic glass with dual-screen, seats with heating and ventilation functions. The 60 TFSI changes the V6 for a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 (453 hp, 487 lb-ft).

It offers the same options as the 55 TFSI plus an interior of full leather, an active suspension with prediction, and a setup with four seats that includes power-adjustable rear seats and a center console. The 60 TFSI e differs from the 60 TFSI only using a turbocharged V6 plug-in hybrid (443 hp, 516 lb-ft).

As the basic equipment on all A8s is the same, we recommend the hybrid 60 TFSI plug-in. In addition to a fuel-efficient powertrain that supports complete electric driving, this machine is far faster and provides more extra features than the 55 TFSI. The 2020 Audi A8 is proposed only in one subtype: A8 Sedan.

The available styles include L 60 TFSI quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (4.0L 8cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 8A), L 55 TFSI quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 8A), and L 60 TFSI e quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 8A). The 2020 Audi A8 has all-wheel drive. The transmissions include an 8-speed shiftable automatic. The 2020 Audi A8 is offered with a 4 yr./ 50000 mi. Basic warranty, a 4 yr./ unlimited mi. Roadside warranty, and a 4 yr./ 50000 mi. Powertrain warranty.
