2012 Audi A8 Long Term Road Test

2012 Audi A8L: Looks Richer in a Darker Color

March 22, 2012


Our Audi A8L, as you know, stickers at over $100,000 (with several option packages that put it over). It has the plush interior to match. Everyone I've had in the car has commented on the interior materials, the roominess, the solid, quality feel of every surface.

But I think the outside looks rather plain in Ice Silver Metallic. I configured a darker one on Audi's Web site. Instead of opting for black, I chose Oolong Gray Metallic and I think it shows off the details of the exterior design much better. The massive grille and fancy LED lights really stand out. It looks more like its $100K price tag.
