I have d3 a8l w12 chip tuned to ctank 485hp n a fairly modest skyline gtr32. Each has a different character n purpose. But sometimes a sheer na power from 12 cylinders is just beyond.you can imagine

Its main rivals is Merc S-class and BMW 7-series. C-class?? C-class and A4 is a match, A6 and E-class.

Well i guess it is nt all that great and i guess they could have done a better job with the rim's.the rim's look flat and boring the rest of the design look's fairly agressive the 0-60mph is impressive for a car that wiegh's 4300lbs only 5sec to 60mph is decent.the a8 just feel's just to big and heavy i think a good rival for the a8 is a mercede's-benz c class.

WOW!!!!!!!!!! 6.0L's well i guess it's a normal engine size if it's a W12.and it's not all that powerfull if it has only 444hp.you get the almost as much torque as a ferrari 599.BUt these are in a different class of veichcle's.you can get more power from the BMW M5's 5.0LV10 with 500hp.and the BMW M3 (E92) almost has as much power as the audi A8's W12 with 444hp the M3 (E92)'s 4.0LV8 produce's 420hp.The audi A8 is nt as good as the M5 or M3 (E92).Infact they allmost out accelerate the A8 bye a second.I think the BMW 335i is more of a challenge for the audi A8 they both accelerate to 62mph around the 5.0sec mark not like the M3 (E92) that doess sub 5sec to 62MPH.then again audi make's the audi s5 to compete with the BMW 335i.so maybe the audi A8 could compete with a BMW 7 serie's.
