Audi A8 L facelift to hit the showrooms on July 12; bookings open

The new A8 L features cosmetic updates inside out; it will be powered by a sole 340hp TFSI petrol engine

First teased in April 2022, the brand new A8 L has a reprofiled front end, with a bolder use of the mesh pattern across the grille. Another significant change is the implementation of angled air intakes that sit beside the fog lamp housings, which are now outlined by a redesigned chrome strip. This luxury limo will also have Audi’s new Digital Matrix LED headlights, which hosts around 1.3 million micro-mirrors to split the light across the driver’s lane, enhancing visibility.

Similar to the outgoing version, the new A8 L will be powered by the 340hp, 3.0-litre turbo petrol engine with mild-hybrid tech and won’t be offered with a diesel engine. International models get a plug-in hybrid powered by a 3.0-litre, V6 engine that develops 461hp in total; as well as an S8 Performance version with a 570hp, 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine.
