Audi A8 Hybrid Reveal

The Geneva Motor Show has seen it’s fair share of hybrids, but Audi has made a splash with it’s reveal of the A8 Hybrid.  In standard trim the A8 is already an impressive vehicle, with big power numbers, and luxury to spare.  The new hybrid should appeal to those looking to stay green and powerful.

Combined, the 2.0 liter motor and electric motor provide over 240 horsepower.  Impressive numbers, especially when you consider that the A8 will be available in v6 versions with similar horsepower and no hybrid power train.

Don’t go rushing to your Audi dealers just yet, the Audi A8 should not be available until sometime in 2011.  By then I’m sure we will see plenty other luxury hybrids on the market, including those from Porsche and even Ferrari.  Depending on how deep your pockets are, the sky is the limit on horsepower and luxury in a green wrapper.

Almost An Audi Super Car

The new Audi A6 is quite possibly the most potent Audi you can buy, less the R8 super car. The Audi A6 is part of the manufacturers ‘S’ line of vehicles and comes with all the go fast goodies you can think of, including a V-8!

The Audi A6 lays down 350 hp thanks to a 4.2-litre v8, compared to 420 hp produced by the R8. In addition to big HP numbers the 4.2-litre also produces a whopping 325-ft/lb of torque. It makes for a smooth ride with plenty of get up and go to embarrass the local muscle car nut.  How about 0-60 in just under 5.8 seconds? Are you feeling damp yet?

Audi A6

As far as looks go it doesn’t get too much more refined. Most would never guess there was a bulging-growth-hormone-using motor under the hood. Furthermore, for a little more than $56,000 sticker you could have one of your own.
