Bring out the cake and light the candles! The Audi A8 is turning 21 this year and to celebrate, the automaker is pulling out all the stops in the form of the Edition 21 model. There’s a few new standard features and a sportier look compared to the base model. Although it’s limited to the United Kingdom, this is still shaping up to be an excellent birthday!
Twenty-one years old is a milestone many vehicles don’t make, and Audi is giving the A8 21 Edition a more grown-up look. The Edition 21 will come in the Daytona Grey Pearl exterior color that can already be found on the S8. Privacy glass for backseat passengers comes standard.
The exterior will get a new look thanks to the Sport package. The front and rear bumpers have been restyled and the side sills are more pronounced. Audi Matrix LED headlights and 20-inch double-spoke alloy wheels with a titanium look also made the cut.
The interior comes with the standard specs of the SE Executive trim and includes a few other treats. The interior is available in cognac brown with black contrast stitching or black leather with red contrast stitching.
Under the hood is a 3-liter TDI V6 engine that pumps out 258 horsepower and 427 lb-ft of torque. The model is limited to 121 units and they won’t come cheap with the long-wheelbase model topping $110,000.
It’s time to celebrate the A8’s 21st anniversary! Happy birthday to the Audi A8 from all of us here at Gossett Audi!
