The A8 has provided me thus far with
remarkable agility and comfort for a
high class sedan. It has given me a
unique alternative to its brethren at
Mercedes Benz and BMW, a package
that offers indivudual styling, the
confidence of quattro, and a very
stylish and yet conservative-minded
atmosphere in the cabin.
My favourite feature is the confidence
ordained from the stiffness of the
ride from its space age aluminum
frame and the quattro. Both are
unique to a car from this class - I feel
safer in snow and in tight turns on
the way to the mountain lodge
compared to a 740i or a S430.
The exterior styling needs to express
the creative and articulate
automobile passions of AUDI. Being
a Canadian I am proud that the lead
designer for the new 2004 A8 is a
Canadian himself. It is an inspiring
design. Audi is much more original
than BMW and Mercedes Benz.
