TCY Motors, the sole dealer and importer for Audi in Brunei, yesterday revealed the new Audi A8 L luxury sedan, which sets the standard in prestige, performance, agility and perfection.
The new Audi A8 L showcases an expressive and dynamic design, with its engine hood, single-frame grille and front bumper boasting a stronger and more sculptured look.
The Audi A8 L also features Audi’s innovative Matrix LED headlights and new assistance systems, which come standard for the Brunei market.
The headlights feature Audi’s Matrix LED technology which enables it to react extremely precisely to other vehicles while ensuring optimum illumination of the road ahead. The high beam comprises 25 individual light-emitting diodes (LED) per unit, which can be switched on, off or dimmed individually depending on the situation.
The A8 L also gains an additional 13 centimetres in length and features a new trunk layout for easier loading. Audi also included additional noise damping measures to the latest A8 L to reduce the already low interior noise levels even further.
For the Brunei market, the Audi A8 L will come with a supercharged V6 3.0 TFSI with 228 kW (310hp). Paired with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system and smooth-shifting eight-speed Tiptronic transmission, the 3.0 TFSI is able to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 5.9 seconds.
The Audi A8 L is installed with the Audi Pre Sense Rear and Audi Side Assist as standard. The Audi Pre Sense Rear initiates preventive protection measures when an impending rear-end-collision is detected, while the Audi Side Assist helps to warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the rear during lane changes.
The A8 L comes with a 14-speaker Surround Sound system with 5.1 surround sound reproduction from BOSE, while its Rear Seat Entertainment system includes two 10.2-inch LCD displays (with TV reception), a pair of Bluetooth headphones and a single DVD player.
