The 2018 Audi A8, due next year in concept form, could spawn multiple body styles. It is currently only offered in the standard and long wheelbase variants only. The new A8 is expected to have extended wheelbase versions and sporty two-door models which, by our estimates will wear the RS badge.
The move has been seen as a response to the success that Mercedes has tasted with the expanded S-Class lineup which has been growing in size since the car was launched in 2014.
A confirmed development for the new car is that it will have a higher level of autonomous driving functions that will allow the car to drive longer and faster without human intervention. The company, had earlier this year, introduced a one-off six-door A8L for a specific client and it appears that the car has met with good reception from the public.
