2011 Audi A8 4.2 quattro: Big Love
Ask any car-guy on the street about Audi and the R8 will likely be the first thing out of his mouth. Cool as that car is, however, it’s not the most significant model in Ingolstadt’s lineup. That title belongs to the A8, the brand’s aspirational big sedan. While it won’t deliver huge numbers on monthly sales charts or boil the blood like its mid-engine super-sibling, the A8 leads the way for the rest of Audi’s range in terms of technology, luxury and design; it’s what cars like the A4 want to be when they grow up. The all-new fourth-generation A8 upholds this role, as we recently discovered around the Mediterranean resort town of Estepona, Spain.
