Our regular readers would remember that the A8 facelift was spotted testing in Mumbai on a couple of occasions last month. Today, more spy pics of the upcoming Audi A8 test mule running on Mumbai roads have surfaced on the cyber space.The registration plates point out that this is the same test mule that was spotted earlier.
The most talked about bit about the A8 facelift has to be its new Matrix LED headlights. The most commendable bit about these headlights is that the high beam can be used continuously without blinding the drivers of oncoming vehicles. This is because the projectors are connected to a camera, which detects the line of vision of the oncoming car’s driver and switches off the diodes that fall in the line. However, the remaining part continues to remain on high beam. Other than the new headlights, which boast of cutting edge technology, the A8 facelift will also get a set of revised taillights. The car also gets new bumpers. On the inside, the car is expected to get an updated MMI system, along with an upholstery change and some additional equipment.
As for the engine options which would be offered, the 3.0 liter TDI diesel and the 3.0 liter & the 4.0 liter TFSI petrol engines are likely to be carried over from the current car. So is be the gigantic W12 6.3 liter for the top of the line variants.
The car would be officially unveiled at the upcoming 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, which starts on 10 September.
