Audi builds 6m long A8 L extended for special customer order

The one-off six-seater and six-door limo uses a wheelbase that's been extended by almost 1.1 metres over the A8 L to 4.22m, with a completely reworked outer skin starting from the A-pillar backwards.

It also features additional use of aluminium to lengthen and strengthen the Audi Space Frame.

The model features a 2.4m glass panel in the roof skin along with sun blinds – one for each row of seats. The six seats are upholstered in extra-supple Valcona leather and rows two and three feature electrically adjustable individual seats. The third row has a continuous centre console, a Rear Seat Entertainment display and a cool box.

The custom model is powered by a 306bhp 3.0 TFSI engine offering a 0 to 62mph time of 7.1 seconds and an electronically governed top speed of 155mph. It’s also fitted with quattro permanent all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed tiptronic gearbox.

Audi said it has had further requests for the model already.
