Powerful and efficient, the engine already drives the future silently

While maintaining the classic quality, the powerful engine of the new Audi A8L is injected with more modern high-tech elements and high-efficiency vehicle concepts. Audi TFSI® engine has a very high compression ratio, allowing you to own very outstanding energy efficiency while enjoying superior performance. In the steady gallop, it still keeps a consistently strong acceleration force. This leisurely intuitive feel outperforms a thousand words.

Efficient and powerful 4.0 TFSI® engine

As Audi's first V-shaped eight-cylinder gasoline engine which fuses twin turbo and FSI direct fuel injection, the 4.0-liter TFSI® engine of the new Audi A8L has reached a new height. The innovative cylinder-on-demand operating system can intelligently close or open some cylinders to achieve power output on demand, thereby effectively reducing fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. And the latest technologies, for example, Adaptive Engine Suspension, have excellent energy efficiency while providing surging power. Thanks to a number of forward-looking technologies, this engine can have a torque of 400 N•m at 1000 rev/min. At a revolving speed between1500 and 5000 rev/min, it can continually output a peak torque of 600 N•m. Its maximum power can reach 320 kW (435 hp). Combined with quattro® full-time four-wheel drive system, it costs only 4.6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/s. This is really a sports car level performance. Its maximum speed is limited to 250 km/h. It also has excellent energy-efficient performance. Its combined fuel consumption is only 9.4 liters per 100 km.

3.0 TFSI® engine with a perfect balance of power and energy consumption

Rated among "2011 Global Top Ten Engines" by American authoritative magazine "Ward's Auto World", the 3.0-liter V-shaped 6-cylinder gasoline direct injection mechanical supercharged engine has a torque of 440 N•m and a proud power of 245 kW (333 hp). The new Audi A8L equipped with such an engine can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/s within only 6 seconds. The resulting rapid road speed enables the new Audi A8L to compete with high-performance sports cars. At the same time, due to its high-efficiency performance, the car achieves an average fuel consumption of only 8.1 liters per 100 km.

2.5 FSI® engine with excellent fuel efficiency

As one of Audi's new engines, the 2.5-liter V-shaped 6-cylinder FSI® fuel direct injection engine is equipped with the Audi Valvelift System (AVS), FSI® fuel direct injection system and other energy-efficient technologies. It has incomparable advantages in ride and noise control compared with traditional inline four-cylinder engines. In addition, it has both surging power and excellent energy-efficient performance: a maximum power of 150 kW and a peak torque of 250 N • m. Combined with an 8-speed tiptronic manual/automatic integrated transmission, the new Audi A8L equipped with such an engine can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/s within 9.6 seconds and have a maximum speed of up to 237 km/h. At the same time, it has the best energy-efficient performance among the same class of cars, having a combined fuel consumption of only 8 liters per 100 km.
