With a new generation BMW 7 Series ready to enter the market, Audi wants to increase the appeal of its A8 model with the introduction of a new special edition, available only in the UK. Called Audi A8 21 Edition, the model celebrates two decades since the model was launched.
The special edition, available in standard and long wheelbase variants, will start at £72,525 and £76,490. To create a sense of exclusivity, a limited run of just 121 cars will be available to order, and customers can expect first deliveries to begin in November.
On the outside, the new Audi A8 Edition 21 is inspired by the sporty look of the S8. It has redesigned front and rear bumpers as well as pronounced side sills, 20-inch double spoke alloy wheels with a titanium-look finish that complement the four exterior colour options, which include the Daytona grey pearl effect shade. Privacy glass from the B-pillar rearwards is also standard.
Building on the SE Executive specification the cars interiors will be available in two colour combinations; cognac brown with black contrasting stitching or black leather with red contrasting stitching. Comfort front sports seats with memory function, 22-way adjustability and integrated pneumatic lumbar and side bolster support are fitted as standard. A black cloth headlining and three-spoke multi-function steering wheel complete the interior enhancements. Illuminated door sill plates bearing the ‘Edition 21’ emblem add another degree of exclusivity.
In terms of infotainment and assistance systems, all Edition 21 models also gain access to the Audi connect portfolio of telephone and internet-based services to complement their HDD-based satellite navigation, plus a BOSE surround sound system in addition to the standard items fitted to SE Executive models. These include the Audi parking system advanced with reversing camera, a power-operated boot lid with hands-free opening and powered door closure.
The Audi A8 Edition 21 uses a 3.0-litre V6 TDI engine which produces 262 hp and 580 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm. Power is channelled to the road via an 8-speed tiptronic transmission linked to quattro permanent all-wheel drive, and acceleration to 62 mph takes 5.9 seconds.
