Audi A8 L 4.0T Sport adds 15 bhp for 2016MY in United States

The Audi A8 L 4.0T Sport has reached the 2016 model year in United States where it now packs more punch than its predecessor. The company’s engineers have fiddled around with the twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine and have managed to extract an additional 15 bhp which means that it now packs a mighty 450 bhp punch which should make it a tad quicker than the model it replaces.

Aside from gaining more power, the beefy full-size premium sedan from Ingolstadt has also been given a more aggressive look thanks to the more prominent rocker panels that make it look wider than before while the front and rear bumpers were also modified to enable a more imposing appearance. It gets as standard a set of five-double spoke 20-inch rims with all-season tires, but you can pay more and upgrade to a 21-inch set that comes with summer tires.

It has a lovely Valcona leather upholstery with diamond stitching, an Alcantara headliner, acoustic window glazing and a panoramic sunroof.
