A8 L with Magnolia paint receives the Audi exclusive treatment

A facelifted Audi A8 L painted in an Individual paint called “Magnolia” is the star these days at Audi Forum Neckarsulm.

There’s more to this long wheelbase A8 than its €3,100 Individual body paint as the luxurious full-size sedan has also received a set of Audi Sport seven double-spoke aluminum wheels that make the car stand out from the crowd even more. It’s the same story on the inside where we notice the wood trim and the Audi Exclusive full leather Valcona package combining saddle brown with Magnolia White.

This particular car also has the optional rear-seat entertainment system with dual tablets mounted on the back of the front headrests while the dashboard has also been dressed in leather. It blends nicely with the Alcantara headliner featuring a two-tone Magnolia White & saddle brown finish.

The way this car looks both on the outside and inside goes to show that although the D4 generation came out way back in 2009, it still look very fresh and has what it takes to compete with the much newer Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series. Those who would rather wait for the next generation A8 should know that it’s on its way and will likely be unveiled before the end of next year as sales are expected to kick off early 2017.
