The third generation of the Audi A8 was introduced in Miami on 30 November 2009 and ran from 2011-2017 when it was succeeded by the fourth generation D5. The A8 was to be Audi's competitor to the BMW 7 series and Mercedes S class and a luxury saloon that offered all the technology you needed, whilst also having great performance and uncompromised comfort. The third generation Audi A8 came with a whole host of new technology and features such as full LED headlamps with Automatic high beam switching or Audi adaptive light (Xenon) with variable headlight range control, optional Bang & Olufsen sound system, driver assistance systems networked using FlexRay technology and more, that meant this new model was so much more advanced than the previous. From factory the D4 came with three engines 4.2 FSI quattro, 3.0 TDI quattro, 4.2 TDI quattro, with a forth 3.0 TDI coming at a later date. Our example was opted with the 4.2L V8 TDI unit that offered superb economy figures whilst also having a more than healthy level of power with 345bhp that enabled the A8 to glide from 0-60 in just 5.5 seconds, which was all controlled through the automatic transmission and Audi's world famous Quattro 4-Wheel Drive system.
Our example was first supplied by Audi in September 2009 and since this date has completed 48589 miles. During this period it has been maintained solely by Audi Main Dealer Agents with services logged at 10200, 18726, 38553 and most recently in December 2018 at 47783 miles. The car is offered for sale with both keys, the owners book pack and previous Audi service invoices meaning that the car is ready to be enjoyed thoroughly by its next keeper.
