Impressive poise

At the heart of the Audi A8L are its modern, systematically refined engines. Impressive reserve power delivers superior road performance and consistently immaculate handling – with consumption and emission figures that have been decisively lowered compared with the previous model, thanks to a whole series of efficiency measures.

4.0 TFSI® engine

Audi A8L 55 TFSI is powered by a V8 twin-turbo engine. The 4.0 V8 TFSI engine for the Audi A8L 55 TFSI, with an output of 309kW (420 bhp), guarantees supreme sporty performance. The engine reaches its high torque of 600 Nm across an unusually wide range of 1,500 rpm to 4,500 rpm.

An innovative mechanical supercharging system with charge air cooler is employed, and turns the 3.0TFSI V6 into a compact powerhouse-with moderate fuel consumption. The peak torque of 420 Nm is sure to impress you, as will the torque curve: At least 90% of it is within a engine speed range of 2,500 and 4,850 rpm. Thanks to its very spontaneous responsiveness and exceptional power delivery across the entire speed range, the six-cylinder engine promotes a particularly dynamic driving style. The Audi A8L accelerates to 100km/h in 6.1 seconds and will has plenty of power reserves left after that. Plus, it goes without saying it complies with the EU5 emission standard.
