 Pros W12 engine accelerates to 60 mph in a lightning fast 4.4 seconds.

 Pros Steering is so precise you will feel like you are driving a much smaller vehicle.

 Pros Extended wheelbase provides backseat passengers with 43 inches of legroom. This is 5 inches more than what is enjoyed in the regular A8 Sedan.

 Pros Bold yet elegant styling with modern lines, a signature grille, and trapezoidal exhaust outlets.

 Pros Audi quattro® all-wheel drive responds to changes in road and weather conditions, and also improves performance on twisting roads.

 Pros Luxurious cabin with rich materials, hand-crafted wood inlays, a sweeping dash, and thoughtfully created center stack.

 Pros Suspension absorbs bumps and holes like a sponge to deliver an unbelievably smooth ride. Some will drive the 2013 Audi A8 L W12 and literally not be able to find one flaw. It is everything most could possibly want in a full size luxury sport sedan. However, there are a few things about the vehicle that others will find a little unsatisfactory.

 Cons Despite its innovative start/stop feature, the W12 returns poor fuel economy; however, this is to be expected from an engine that can scream out 500 horsepower.

 Cons Audi offers so many features and packages that the attractive MSRP can increase significantly.

 Cons At 13.2 cubic feet, the trunk is a disappointment, especially if you need to throw a few golf bags back there.

 Cons Cloth seating is not available, which some buyers simply prefer. Even Mercedes offers a premium vinyl that looks and feels like leather for those who don't like the idea of leather in their vehicle.
