There is a new generation of car buyers in India that are lapping in luxury and the luxury car makers have all the means so that they can savour their tastes with new generation automobiles. Audi is currently trailing behind BMW and Mercedes in the Indian market which makes it determined to step up its plans to introduce better performing models in India.

The new Audi A8 is planned for a Diwali launch this year. The Indian version will be offered in a long wheelbase version only and is expected to be priced around Rs. 75 lakhs for the 3.0 V6 TDi (240bhp) variant. The new A8 will also be available with a 4.2 V8 TDi oil burner producing 350bhp of power, 4.2 DOHC V8 FSI and the top of the line W12. The new upgraded model will be equipped with ZF-supplied eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Quattro four-wheel drive as a standard feature.
