The sports executive specifications will be replaced with new sports trim and s-line bumpers with similar side skirts. A 19-inch seven-spoke alloys and LED headlights will be offered. The new infotainment system is outstanding and you will get a 600-Watt Bose sound system with Wi-Fi hotspot support to further enhance your driving mode

Audi Sport models will start from £65,825 for a 3.0 litre TDI, a 4.0 litre sport model will be available from £76,435. There will be no long wheel base model available in the new Audi A8, because of no demand.
