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.

Audi has really demonstrated that they are at the top of their game when it comes to engineering. While the Audi A8 is unlikely to be the most purchased vehicle in their range, it is certainly one that everybody who steps inside of it is going to love. A lot of the technology that you find packed into the Audi A8 is no doubt going to be included in other models they release over the coming years.

 

Audi A8 0-60

There are two different engine choices for the Audi A8. You have the V6, which is a 3.0-litre petrol engine which offers 335bhp. The second option is a 3.0-litre diesel engine. Both of them offer a whopping amount of power for your money, and you will not be disappointed with either model.

Generally, you are going to be doing the Audi A8 0-60 in about 5 seconds, give or take depending on conditions. So, not the fastest Audi out there, but for something of this size, it is not too bad. Your quarter-mile acceleration is going to be a little over 12 seconds, maybe erring into the 13-second mark dependent on the conditions of the road.

Despite the Audi A8 is on the heavier side, it certainly functions well when it comes to handling. Even if you get the diesel engine, it functions well. Most people who have diesel cars tend to find that the vibration is a little bit over the top, which is annoying. That is not going to be a problem with this vehicle. We promise you of that. This is because there are various ‘anti-vibration’ measures built into the A8.

We are actually surprised at how smooth the Audi A8 runs, no matter the engine inside. Sure, it is not the quickest car in the world, but it handles like butter and is surprisingly responsive.

 

Exterior & Interior

The Audi A8 is one of the larger cars the company has produced, which means that you have plenty of space inside. Unlike many of the other ‘new releases’ that Audi has come up with in recent years, you aren’t going to have a car which has lost weight since its previous incarnation. It has gained weight on the old model. 100kg, in fact. However, it is quicker, so we have no idea how Audi managed that.

As with many of the newer Audi vehicles, you will notice an excellent digital screen inside. T looks fantastic too.

This is a car made for the larger families with plenty of space, including a 505-liter boot. This is more than enough space for the luggage of the whole family.

Lots of gear is included in the Audi A8 as standard too. This includes 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, the digital system, LED headlights, cruise control, and climate control. This is certainly not too bad for the price you will be paying for it.

 

Conclusion

This is a competitively priced vehicle. While the Audi A8 0-60 and quarter-mile may be a little slower than some other Audi vehicles, the fact that it is so large is probably a good reason for this. Worth a purchase for the larger families out there.
