Audi A8 Available with Two New Equipment Packages in Europe
European customers will have two additional boxes added to the order form when purchasing an Audi A8. The company now offers both the Audi comfort plus style package and the Audi sport plus style package to enhance its flagship sedan.
Finished in Night Blue, pearl effect paint, the Audi comfort plus style package takes the A8 to a new level in luxury. In addition to the special paint, the package includes other exterior enhancements such as 19-inch forged aluminum wheels and an “adaptive light” system with LED daytime running lights. Inside, the seats are upholstered in silk beige Valcona leather. Silk beige Nappa leather is applied to the center console, doors and dashboard. Also, the front and rear seats are heated and the fronts feature ventilation. The price for this package will depend on which engine the customer chooses and will range between €4200 and €14,500 ($5640 and $19,469).
The Audi sport plus style package decks out the A8 in all-new Panther Black, crystal effect paint (and, no, the paint doesn’t actually contain real bits of panther). This package also includes the “adaptive light” with LED daytime running lights and a set of 20-inch “S design” cast aluminum wheels in a dark steel finish. The cabin boasts a set of heated front sports seats. The seats are covered in goa beige Valcona leather while the center console, doors and lower dashboard are trimmed in black Nappa leather. Pricing for this package once again depends on engine choice; it will range between € 2100 and € 9600 ($2819 and $12,900).
No word on whether the packages will be available here in the U.S. However, don’t get your hopes up as there is likely to be limited demand for the packages that could alone potentially cost more than a well-equipped Chevy Aveo.
