Chinese journalists have declassified the date of the premiere of the updated sedan Audi A8 D5 series. The Autohome portal reports that the debut of the model will take place on November 2. The restyled version will be able to boast of an updated appearance, improved trim and modernized equipment. The car will be available in a luxury version of the Audi-Horch with a long body!
Prototypes of the updated A8 have already repeatedly hit the lenses of spy cameras since the fall of 2020. Insiders previously reported that a full-fledged premiere will take place before the end of this year. The Audi A8 D5 debuted in July 2017, and it looks like the middle of the model’s lifecycle has been reached.
It is expected that the model will be equipped with matrix LED optics, large-mesh radiator grille, and stylish lamps with “light signature”. The model will acquire new versions of hybrid power plants. The Audi-Horch limousine will most likely be ordered with a W12 engine, although at the moment this unit is not allowed even for the armored A8 Security.
The Audi-Horch executive sedan will compete with the new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, and may become one of the key markets for the luxury A8. The updated version of the S8 will appear a little later, because the “charged” sedan went on sale just two years ago.
