The new generation Audi A8 is now available to order in the United Kingdom with a starting price of £58,800.

Due to arrive in the UK in January 2013, the new Audi A8 boasts of revisions to its weight-optimized, mostly aluminum Audi Space Frame (ASF) body as well as a host of technological advances like the new MatrixBeam Light Emitting Diode headlights and an improved line-up of EU6-compliant engines.

Its rear features revised LED tail lamps and a bumper that incorporates two rhomboid tail pipes. The new generation A8 now features new chrome elements, new high gloss black window surrounds and five new colors.

This combo allows the Audi MatrixBeam LED headlights to cover relevant parts of the high-beam by dimming or shutting off individual diodes while preserving illumination is in the remaining sections. The lighting system employs predictive route data from the navigation system with MMI Touch to accurately adjust light distribution according to the current driving situation. It can even recognize and act on route data like corners and road types.
