The Audi A8 is a high-comfort, high-speed executive sedan, the flagship of the Audi range. It was first shown in February 1994. The car with front or all-wheel drive (quattro), a monocoque body made of aluminum alloy, made using the "space frame" technology, is rich in equipment based on electronics and modern technologies.

The all-wheel drive 2.8 quattro was released in 1995. In June of the same year, a new 3.7 V8 engine was installed. In January 1996, the 2.8 V6 30 valve engine (193 hp) appears.

Expanded comPlectation of all modifications of the A8 series. Until 1996, the air conditioner was included in the standard equipment only for cars equipped with "eights". Now owners of cars with 6-cylinder engines can also use the air conditioner without additional payment. The front-wheel drive version is additionally equipped with traction control, four side airbags (plus airbags for the driver and front passenger).

The new range of engines in 1997 is, first of all, a V-shaped six-cylinder diesel engine with asupercharged and direct injection. Its working volume is 2.5 liters, and its power reaches 150 hp. Balance, power characteristics and economic indicators put the 2.5 TDI engine on a par with the best engines in its class. In addition, the A8 is produced with a 2.8-liter six-cylinder engine, as well as a V-shaped "eight" with a working volume of 3.7 and 4.2 liters with a capacity of 230 and 300 hp. respectively. The car can be equipped with both a mechanical box and a five-speed "automatic" by ZF.

Model S8 preis a particularly high-speed version of the A8 and is equipped with a V-shaped "eight" with increased to 340 hp. power and a mechanical 6-speed gearbox.

In November 1998, a new modification of the Audi A8 was presented in Germany, in June 1999 a model with increased power appeared, in February 2000 - with a new 2.5 V6 Tdi engine (180 hp).

The car body is completely made of light alloys using Space Frame technology. On the frame, welded from aluminum profiles, aluminum panels are hung - fenders, roof, sidewalls.All parts are made of a special aluminum alloy that does not corrode, is easy to recycle and better absorb impact energy. The front and rear suspensions are independent, four-link, assembled on a subframe.

The upgraded version externally differs from the previous one with a new radiator grill, modified bumpers and door handles, as well as headlights with smooth glass. In general, the differences are hardly noticeable. The body structure has been slightly changed.

Electronic stability control system is nowincluded in standard equipment. The richly decorated interior is equipped with airbags in the head area for those sitting in the front and rear. The interior lighting of the passenger compartment has been redesigned.

The eight-cylinder engines feature new heads with five valves per cylinder and a variable intake manifold. As a result, the power of the 3.7-liter engine increased to 191 kW, the torque - up to 350 Nm, and the power of the 4.2-liter engine - up to 228 kW, the torque - 410 Nm.

To reduce unsprung weight and improve characterThe steering characteristics of the wheel drive are also made of aluminum alloy.

The highest technical characteristics are characteristic of the Audi A8 with a turbodiesel: power 150hp, torque above 310 Nm, and it remains the maximum in a record wide range of revolutions (from 1500 to 3200), fuel consumption is at a speed of 90, 120 km / h and in the urban cycle - 4.4; 5.7; 8.5 liters per 100 km.

German Chancellor Heinrich Schroeder preferred the long-wheelbase Audi A8 specially made for him to Mercedes executive cars, which traditionallyThe German chancellors were called in.

In 2000, the A8 family was supplemented with two new diesel units with 180 and 225 hp. Now the A8 program includes five engines with a capacity of 180-310 hp, three of which can be installed on both front- and all-wheel drive chassis. We would like to highlight the first in Europe 3.3-liter V8 diesel with 225 hp, which turns the A8 3.3TDI into a kind of "diesel" express train, ideally suited for economical driving on the Autobahn. This power unit is completed only with a 5-speed "automatic" andonly on the Quattro chassis. Its maximum speed reaches 242 km / h, acceleration from standstill to 100 km / h is 8.2 s, and fuel consumption in the conventional European commuter driving cycle is only 7.3 l / 100 km versus 8.9 l / 100 km for 260-horsepower gasoline equivalent.

The most prestigious is the A8 Quattro 4.2, extended by 130 mm, with a 310 hp engine. The car can have an exclusive interior and be designed as an "office on wheels".

Interestingly, even in this class, Audi has a special "sports" version of the S8. At first, she was equipped with somethingOnly a mechanical 6-speed gearbox, but later quite naturally there appeared a 5-speed automatic Tiptronic, equipped with a DSP system, which makes it possible to “manually” shift gears. The S8 chassis features 18-inch wheels and a stiffer suspension with 20mm lower ground clearance. The car is intended for wealthy people who prefer to personally drive a car. The S8 has a very high level of safety and comfort.

The technical level of Audi's top models is steadily increasing. Now to fans of limousines withthe most powerful modification is offered in the aluminum body - the Audi A8 W12 - equipped with a 6.0-liter 12-cylinder engine with a capacity of 420 hp. with.

In 2002, a new generation of Audi A8 appeared at the Paris Motor Show. The modified exterior resembles its predecessor with its proportions and graphics. An uncompromising vehicle with a fresh take on classic luxury sedan performance and Audi's signature sporty accent. Applying advanced technologies, the German concern confidently pushed its German counterparts-competitors in the market - Mercedes Benz and BMW.

The vehicles use the same platform as the Volkswagen Phaeton and Bentley. At the same time, the Audi A8 weighs 1780 kg, while the Phaeton weighs 2291 kg. The Audi A8 weighs less due to the fact that some parts are made of aluminum. The redesigned body of the new A8 is stiffer and more reliable than ever. Lighter weight means lower fuel consumption and improved dynamics.

In terms of equipment, the second generation A8 is not inferior to competitors. Among other systems, there is an adaptive radar cruise control that automatically maintains a given discontrol to the vehicle in front, a tire pressure monitoring system, a multifunction steering wheel with control buttons for a six-speed "automatic", an electromechanical parking brake. There is also a branded highlight - the so-called adaptive head light: when cornering, the headlights shine not only forward, but also sideways, in the direction of maneuver.

The safety system includes "double-acting" airbags, which, depending on the force of the impact, inflate in whole or in part, new active head restraintski in the front seats, as well as inflatable curtains to protect the head in a side impact. In addition, the Audi A8 has a full-size ring-shaped airbag on the driver's side, which is particularly effective in preventing impacts on the steering wheel in a collision.

From its predecessor, the car borrowed a permanent all-wheel drive with a Torsen self-locking center differential, but got a new six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, which allows it to move in both manual and automatic modes.

The A8 has a pneumaticThe same suspension as that found on the Audi Allroad. The suspension stiffness changes in three modes: sport, normal and comfortable. Run flat tires that you can keep driving even after a puncture. The wheels are 18.3 inches in diameter.

The V8 3.7 engine of the new Audi A8 develops 280 hp and its torque reaches 360 Nm at 3600 rpm. Even more powerful than the V8 4.2. Impressive 335 hp and acceleration from standstill to 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds. But exceptional dynamics does not mean a compromise on comfort. New 6-speed kThe tiptronic gearbox provides unsurpassed running smoothness, the highest comfort, and also monitors the level position of the body, regardless of longitudinal or lateral dynamic loads. And thanks to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive and the adaptable air suspension, the engine power is used optimally.

All these innovations serve as a worthy filling of the classic German luxury sedan, which stands out for its art of combining the most advanced technology with the luxury of hand-finished leather and wood in a thoughtfulom to the smallest details of the interior.

In 2005, the 3.2 FSI V6 with direct injection, already familiar from the A6 model, was added to the range of engines. This 260-horsepower engine gives a heavy executive sedan weighing under two tons quite a decent temperament. The speed limit of 100 km / h is overcome in 7.7 s.

The diesel engine family has expanded with the introduction of the 4.2 TDI V8. It is lightweight, compact, quiet and economical. During its development, all the latest technical solutions were used: the block is made of cast iron with graphite additives, on topThe cylinder heads are laser treated, the two turbochargers (each responsible for its own row of cylinders) have variable turbine geometry. The working mixture is prepared by the latest generation Common Rail system. For more precise control of the injection process, Audi engineers have equipped the injectors with piezo crystals. Compressing under the influence of an electric current, they twice accelerate the process of supplying the required amount of fuel to the cylinders. The result is record-breaking power and tremendous torque. 4.2 TDI develops 326 forces. Torque -650 Nm, which is 70 Nm more than the flagship W12 petrol engine. Fuel consumption is only 8 liters of diesel fuel per 100 km.

In 2007, the German manufacturer updated the model. The exterior has not undergone any major changes. Externally, the updated A8 can be distinguished by a modified radiator grille, rectangular foglights instead of round ones, turn signals on the mirror housings and chrome trims on the door handles. At the rear, the car has also been redesigned with new LED light blocks and a slightly redesigned boot lid.

In all myFor some time now, a modified suspension and an improved steering mechanism are used. Improved the soundproofing of the cabin. We expanded the color gamut of the interior, offered even better materials for the interior trim.

The model has undergone not only external changes. Significant efforts of the manufacturer were directed to the refinement of the filling of the flagship of the lineup. The line of power units was supplemented by the 2.8 FSI engine with a capacity of 210 hp, which migrated to the A8 from the A6. Its highlight is the Audi Valve Lift system. In fact, this is a copy of Honda's i-VTEC system - oneach intake valve has two cams: "economical" and "power". Only, unlike the Japanese, Audi minders reduce the intake phase as much as possible - due to the lower vacuum behind the throttle valve, pumping losses are reduced. At low loads and speeds up to 4000 rpm, the lift of one valve is 5.7 mm, and the second is only 2 mm, which contributes to the turbulence of the air in the cylinder. Under full throttle, even at lower revs, six solenoids (one for each cylinder) shift the clutch splines by “power»The cams - and both inlet valves open by 11 mm. This allows you to reach a speed of 100 km / h in 8 seconds with very moderate gasoline consumption: 8.3 liters per 100 kilometers. The Audi A8 2.8 FSI is equipped with front-wheel drive and a multitronic automatic transmission.

Line Assist monitors road markings using a video camera at the interior mirror. If the driver falls asleep or begins to rebuild without the turn signal turned on, the electronics immediately turn on the steering wheel vibration. Moreover, you can select three levels of amplitude through the MMI menu.

The third generation Audi A8 wouldlo presented in 2009 in Miami. Sales began in March 2010, and in April they presented an extended version of the Audi A8 long with a wheelbase stretched by 130 mm. The design of the new Audi A8 is a harmonious synthesis of smooth, powerful dynamics and a stately appearance. The sporty temperament is particularly well expressed by the coupé-style roofline. The car has grown slightly compared to its predecessor - its dimensions have increased by 75 mm in length and 55 mm in width. But it became 16 mm lower. Sedan length - 5137 (L version - 5267) mm, width - 1949, heightta - 1460 (1471); wheelbase - 2992 (3122) mm, track - 1644/1635 mm. The luggage compartment has a capacity of 510 liters, and a hatch for long items is provided in the back of the rear seat.

The new A8 now has full LED optics, as well as a variety of safety systems, including the Pre Sense warning system, pedestrian recognition system, night vision system, adaptive cruise control, etc. The body is completely made of aluminum, its torsional rigidity increased by 24% ... At the same time, the weight of the car remained the same as that of the previous "eight" and it changesShorter than the main competitors: BMW 7-Series and Mercedes S-Class. Curb weight - from 1830 kg (with a 3-liter TFSI), with the FSI "eight" the car is 5 kg heavier.

Undercarriage parts are also made of light alloys. Of course, the front and rear of the A8 has a kinematically perfect double wishbone suspension - all with air springs. Transverse stabilizers, shock absorber stiffness is adjusted in real time by Drive Select electronics. So, at speed, the landing of the sedan over the road automatically (by means of pneumatics) reducesI'm 25 mm. The center of gravity is lower and the air resistance is reduced. Air resistance coefficient - 0.26.

In the “state”, the A8 has tires in the size 235 / 60R (with a gasoline “eight”) or 235 / 55R (with a heavy turbodiesel) - on 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels. Among the options are stylish 21-inch ones. Steering gear-rack mechanism with servotronic hydraulic booster. Plus the fantastic Audi Dynamic Steering for an extra charge. The brake discs are ventilated, ABS and ESP work under the common control of Drive Select.

Audi A8 third generationIya made a breakthrough in terms of equipping with information systems and telematics. So, "music", by default, Bose (14 speakers) - or the optional Advanced Sound System from Bang & Olufsen for 1400 watts. And of course, infotainment electronics for passengers in the 2nd row: a pair of 10.2-inch monitors above the backs of the front seats, a DVD player and a 20 GB hard drive. Moreover, digital processors control everything - from the "regular" 2-zone "climate control" (4-zone for an additional charge) to the optional Audi Dynamic Steering steering mechanism.

The interior has becomeIra, lighter and more spacious. The quality of materials is at the highest level. In addition, Audi practices custom-made upholstery. Available in five basic colors for the factory interior and three shades for the roof cladding. Audi also offers several leather packages, Alcantara and an aluminum package for the interior. On the new Audi A8 debuted a new generation MMI multimedia system with a touchpad, which has learned to recognize letters and numbers, so that the driver can enter the name of the location for the navigationgating system or dial a phone number. In standby mode, the MMI monitor is recessed into the instrument panel. When turned on, the eight-inch flat and thin screen is positioned above the front bezel. The MMI can be used to control the color of the lighting (ruby, white or yellowish).

The standard function of the front seats is 12 directions of electrical adjustment. If this is not enough, then for an additional fee, the seats will have 22 adjustments. Sports seats, interior ventilation and even pneumatic massage can be ordered. MassageIt is the air that pulsates in the seat backs according to five different programs and at a given intensity. The automatic air conditioning system is adjustable from both the front and rear seats. The system operates in three modes - soft, medium and strong. For winter, there is also a fourth mode with intensive heating of the zone of the feet of all passengers.

Initially, the manufacturer offers two types of engines: a 4.2 FSI gasoline engine with a capacity of 372 hp. and a V8 TDI diesel with a 351 hp turbocharger. Impressive power reservetel provides excellent road behavior and impeccable handling. At the same time, fuel consumption and unwanted emissions are significantly reduced compared to the previous model. A new generation engine management system and innovative heat management systems help reduce fuel consumption. The engine quickly warms up to operating temperature after a cold start, which helps reduce power loss due to friction. The 4.2 FSI engine requires only 9.5 liters of fuel per 100 km. DvWith a maximum torque of 445 Nm, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.7 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically limited to 250 km / h. A little later, a diesel version of the 3.0 V6 TDI with 250 hp became available. and a petrol 3-liter "six" TFSI with a power of 290 hp.

The new 8-speed automatic transmission from the German company ZF transmits torque to all wheels through a Torsen center differential, which distributes it in a ratio of 40:60 in favor of the rear wheels. Automatic transmission allows prforced control (tiptronic) - either a lever on the center console, or steering column switches. From now on, all versions of the A8 will be all-wheel drive.

The car harmoniously combines design conservatism and the most advanced technical solutions.

In 2013, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, an updated model of the A8 sedan was presented, including its extended version of the A8 L. Cars received both external and internal improvements, more efficient engines and modern technical stuffing. The standard model has kept its dimensions. Sedan A8 Lreceived a wheelbase lengthened by 130 millimeters and became just as long itself (5267 millimeters from bumper to bumper).

The models feature a new front bumper, revised bonnet and a modified one-piece grille. There is an additional chrome trim and five new body colors, expanding the selection to 12 shades in total. At the rear, the flatter lights are paired with a pair of diamond-shaped exhaust pipes located along the edges of the bumper. Both headlights and taillights use modernLED technology. As an option, the developer offers the installation of innovative Matrix LED headlights with intelligent control of the light beam. These headlights use 25 individual LEDs to achieve the optimal amount of light, whatever the situation.

Internal changes mainly affected the possibility of choosing a variety of interior materials. The salon greets with high-quality leather upholstery and leather steering wheel cover and transmission lever cover. The dashboard is easy to use and easy to cheatit is. And with the help of the head-up display, some of the information for the driver is displayed on the windshield. The list of equipment, both in standard configurations and in additional options, is endless as always. In the basic version, a three-seater sofa is installed at the back. A pair of separate seats is an option for all modifications, except for the "top-end" one, with a W12 engine (this is standard equipment for it). A massive center console dividing the sofa in two at the back is also installed for an additional charge. By ordering the most luxurious back seat with chewith three massage programs and five intensity levels (the usual one has two programs and three intensity levels), the customer will also receive an “advanced” center console with a climate control unit, an MMI remote control, a folding footrest, a pair of LCD displays and so on ...

On the safety front, several upgrades have emerged, including Active Lane Keeping (makes small steering adjustments), Park Assist and Head-Up Display.

Affected changes and engine compartmentyour car. The power of all power units, without exception, has increased and at the same time they have become more economical in fuel consumption and more environmentally friendly (meet the requirements of the Euro-6 standard). As the driving force, there is a choice of a pair of diesel and a pair of gasoline engines, as well as a hybrid version of the power plant with an electric assistant for the internal combustion engine. The top-of-the-line is a 4.0 TFSI twin-turbocharged 8-cylinder petrol engine with 435 hp. It is able to accelerate the sedan from standstill to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds. At pOn a measured trip, for the benefit of fuel economy, the engine is able to turn off 4 of 8 cylinders as unnecessary. A more modest 3.0 TFSI gasoline engine develops 310 hp. Topping the diesel lineup is a 4.2-liter 385 hp engine that can deliver an impressive 850 Nm of torque. The most economical 3.0-liter diesel with 258 horsepower. This engine consumes on average only 5.9 liters of diesel fuel.

In other modifications of cars, the engines have not changed. For example, the A8 L W12 Quattro, which equipsI am a 6.3 liter W12 petrol engine, develops a power of 500 hp. (as well as in previous generations of cars).

The hybrid version of the A8 combines a 2.0 liter TFSI engine and an electric motor for a combined output of 245 hp. with a maximum torque of 480 Nm. The hybrid model consumes an average of 6.3 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers. On electric power alone, the hybrid sedan can travel up to 3 kilometers at speeds below 100 km / h.

On all drive wheels of the proprietary Quattro all-wheel driveThe motors are transmitted by a fast 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. As an option, there is a rear sport differential which optimally distributes the torque between the rear wheels at high speed, which is standard on the A8 with the powerful diesel engine and the Audi S8.
