Audi Builds One-Off A8 L extended

The world of limousines and aftermarket extended-wheelbase builds is certainly an interesting one, with panel fitment that’s suspect at best, and the unforeseen mess that may lie underneath.  So it makes sense that one particular affluent european individual decided that rather than look to an agency to fulfill their extended dreams, they’d go to the manufacturer themselves.
The result of this inquiry is what Audi is referring to as the A8 L extended, a 20.9ft long ultra-luxury vehicle with seating for six and all the fit, finish and structural integrity you’d expect from a factory-built vehicle.  Now featuring six doors and an additional row of seating, the car features a larger glass roof, revised styling from the A-pillar back, and electronically adjustable rear seats.  To maintain braking performance while carrying the additional weight, 15″ brakes from Audi’s S8 have been fitted.
Audi says that they have already received additional requests for custom product similar to this A8 L, meaning that if you’ve got the cash, Audi just might make the one-off hyper luxury car of your dreams.

Read the full press release below.

  • Premium manufacturer develops and builds 6.36-meter (20.9 ft) sedan to special customer order
  • One-off specimen meets same standards as production model
  • Comfortable and spacious seating for six 

Audi puts the customer first, however out of the ordinary their requirements may be. An example of this is the Audi A8*: at the request of a European customer the premium brand has built a first one-off version of the sedan in king-size format. Measuring 6.36 meters (20.9 ft) in length and with a wheelbase of 4.22 meters (13.8 ft), the A8 L extended* affords top-class comfort for passengers occupying all of its six seats. A concept that generates customer: Audi has further requests for the custom product already.
