New Audi A8 L Version to Rival Maybach

Posted on May 9, 2016

Apparently surprised by demand for Mercedes-Benz' longest luxury sedans, Audi is considering a new flagship luxury barge to slot above the A8 L.

The company offers just the standard A8 and the long-wheelbase A8 L, while rival Mercedes-Benz sells the extra-long Maybach and Pullman variants alongside two lengths of basic S-Class sedan.

Audi has shown several one-off or limited-edition models that hint at potential upscale variants for series production. The A8 L Extended is the longest example, featuring three seating rows and six doors. Rather than focusing on length, the A8 L Chauffeur Edition features a more luxurious rear cabin with two power-adjustable seats.
