2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test


2012 Audi A8L 4.2 Quattro: On The Road Again

July 26, 2012

Last weekend it was a rafting trip to northern California in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. This weekend it's a road trip to Monterey in the Audi A8L for MotoGP at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Four of us are leaving tonight. The car is washed and ready to go. Can't wait.

And unlike with the GC SRT8, I have no pre-trip reservations about the Audi A8L.

The A8's ride is considerably softer than the GC SRT8's, and the rear seat area of the "L" is gigantic. This might be one of those rare cars where the rear seat is a better place to spend time than the front. We'll see.

The front-seat passenger will have lots of "techery" to fiddle with and I'm looking forward to my own personal massage. From the seat.

So, who is joining me at MotoGP this weekend? There's nothing quite like seeing/hearing a race in person.
