Wat exactly are you getting with the 2013 A8 3.0T? A more affordable entry point into the range that doesn’t lose anything in the way of driving dynamics while still offering relatively good looks, top-notch comfort and absolute class-leading tech.

Once you make the sharp-looking 2011 Audi A8 lose its confounded German cool, then you can appreciate just how good it is. It’s a very big leap ahead versus its predecessor. As an all-around effort, it is at least the equal to its competition from BMW and Mercedes.

In objective terms, the Audi A8 is fully competitive with the vaunted Germans from BMW and Mercedes, but there are still only a few folks who, with a $100,000 bill in their pocket, decide to stop in the Audi store.

The lightweight aluminum space-frame and 372HP V8 means the A8 is on par with its peers, but Audi’s rear-biased Quattro all-wheel-drive puts it into new territory. For lack of a better phrase, they’ve put old luxury on notice and infused some very welcome “sport” into its flagship.

The top Audi A8 is every bit as pleasant to drive as one might expect of a twelve-cylinder, six-figure German luxury sedan. As cliché as it may sound, however, the A8L is a car best enjoyed from the back seat.

The base sticker price on the 2011 A8 is $78,050 versus $94,600 for the Mercedes S-class. Bargains are not usually associated with premium automobiles, but by that measure, the Audi A8 qualifies as one.

While the XJ and the 7 Series have superb cockpits, the 2011 Audi A8’s mix of shiny tech and man-cave comforts is hard to beat. It’s odd that Audi thought of everything except perfecting the most elemental bit — driving.
