  • Updated Audi A8 Revealed at 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show
    Posted On | | 1332 Views

    German luxury carmaker Audi has today introduced the updated A7 at the IAA in Frankfurt. The engine lineup has once again become more powerful and efficient; new assistance systems and the innovative Matrix LED headlights make driving more composed than ever. One great strength of the big sedan is its low weight. The Audi A8 3.0 TFSI with the normal wheelbase has a curb weight of just 1,830 kilograms, best-in-class for models with all-wheel drive. The key factor in its lightweight construction is the body, which except for the B-pillars is made entirely of aluminum. An Audi Space Frame (ASF) design, it tips the scales at just 231 kilograms, roughly 40 percent less than a comparable steel construction. The ASF body also makes it possible to reduce weight in many other areas, from the brakes to the fuel tank.
