Audi A8 History

The first generation (1994-2002) Audi A8 replaced the Audi V8 and was built on the Volkswagen D2 platform. This was the first mass production car to be built on an all aluminum frame. This vehicle was available in LWB and SWB variants. These cars were very luxurious with such features as heated seats and climate control.

The second generation (2002-09) was built on the Volkswagen D3 platform which made it larger than the previous version. In 2005 there was a change to the available engines and a slight makeover, which gave the A8 a new grille and front end design.

The third generation (2009-present) is built on the MLB platform which still has the aluminum frame, making it the lightest and most economical car in this class. This is the current version on the market.
