2012 Audi A8 L W12 with 500 horsepower priced at $133,500


Audi is introducing a series of 2012 models in its lineup, but what we are interested is the new 2012 Audi A8 L W12.  Even though the 2011 Audi A8 L W12 barely has its tires worn, Audi continues to refine luxury amenities for the 2012 model.

The 2012 Audi A8 L W12 sedan is similar to the 2011 model, and it will have a starting price of $133,500. It is powered by the same 6.3-liter 12-cylinder producing 500 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque. Now that is a lot of moving parts for such a low return in horsepower and torque, but it makes up in acceleration time though. This engine is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive to help produce sports-car levels of performance. This powertrain setup allows the 2012 Audi A8 L W12 sedan to launch from 0-60 mph in a mere 4.4 seconds for this large and heavy sedan.

The main attraction of the 2012 Audi L W12 is luxury, and it doesn’t skim in any way.  It features high luxury amenities such as 22-way comfort seats in Valcona leather seating surfaces with ventilation and massage functions, Alcantara headliner, 20-inch custom alloy wheels, LED headlights, panorama sunroof, and rear seat entertainment along with Wi-Fi hotsport capability.

The 2012 Audi A8 L W12 sedan is not for everyone, which Audi is aiming this sedan at high-class business executives and dignitaries.
