If you are going to spend your hard-earned money on a large, luxury sedan, don’t you want to spend it on a company with a solid reputation?  How about a company that has been in the automobile business since 1885?  That’s right, 1885, and we are talking about the Audi A8, one of the best large luxury sedans on the market.

The 2013 Audi A8 has everything its main competitors has and often more.  Sure the BMW 7 Series and the Jaguar XJ are more popular; sure the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a greater name.  However, none of them are superior to the Audi A8 and that is saying a great deal.

The Audi A8 is bigger than its rivals and yet lighter due to some lightweight aluminum construction. It sports a4.2-liter V8 engine that can give, depending on the trim, up to 372 horsepower and still provide 17/27 mpg, which is way above industry standards.  In addition, the A8 can go from 0-60 in an impressive 4.4 seconds, and that is blowing the socks off in any language.

The first car produced by Audi was in 1910 and it was called the Type B.  Audi actually began as Wanderer in 1885, but eventually merged with three other car companies.  In fact, the four rings that they have as an insignia represent the four companies that merged to make Audi.  One other piece of trivia:  Audi in Latin means “to listen.”

Well, car buyers are now listening to the Audi A8 and in a big way.  It comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive, and its safety features include anti-lock brakes, stability and traction controls, and full-length side airbags as well as front and rear seat airbags.  This is a well-designed car that is well-worth the attention of anyone in the market for big and luxury.

What about replacement parts?  Seriously, folks, if this company has been making cars since 1910, then there is a good chance they know what they are doing.  The replacement parts are high-quality with any Audi, and used parts are just as reliable.  In fact, they are so reliable that it begs the question why anyone would buy new replacement parts?  Your best bet, since parts are expensive, is to head to your local salvage yard and buy recycled auto parts for much less money.
