Roadfly.com – 2011 Audi A8 Road Test & Review

Audi redesigned their top of the line sport sedan for 2011. The new Audi A8 has redesigned sheet metal and a more pronounced fascia on the outside and the interior is decidedly Audi – upscale and modern.

Once you’re behind the wheel of this stunning uber-sedan and you’re already enjoying some of the best driving dynamics in the world you’ll be ready to enjoy the super-modern interior and amenities. Super cool lighting treatments are one of the first things you’ll notice about the Audi’s interior.

The 2011 Audi A8 is most often compared to the Mercedes-Benz S550 and the BMW 7 Series variants. They each offer their own take on the European sport sedan. The big differentiator is probably the price in the case of the Audi. The Audi comes standard with all-wheel-drive and for the piece of mind and safety that AWD adds choosing amongst the three competitors is more difficult than ever.

Written by Roadfly Charlie

Charlie is Roadfly’s founder and publisher, and was taught to drive by his father in a 1974 Porsche 914. That made poor Charlie a Porsche fanboy for life, and after driving a 911SC at 16, he bought and campaigned a variety of 944s at racetracks up and down the East Coast, earning awards and track records in his twenties. Charlie never really got over the car bug, and after a career in real estate development he founded the Internet media firm that became Roadfly. Charlie lives in McLean, VA with his wife and two daughters, and between the demands of family and business doesn’t have much time to play with cars anymore, excluding the machinery we review.
