The Mercedes-Benz claims to the first ve­hi­cle in the world to have no light bulbs — all il­lu­mi­na­tion is LED. Benz also has a rear seat belt with an airbag func­tion, spread­ing the load of crash forces on the pas­sen­ger’s rib cage. The most torque of any Audi is gen­er­ated by the 4.2-litre twin-turbo diesel V8 — 850Nm. This en­ables a 4.7-sec­ond sprint to 100km/h yet a claimed thirst of 7.4L/100km. Mas­sag­ing front seats (with a hand­ful of dif­fer­ent modes) are stan­dard fare on the A8. The Lexus LS600h is the only V8 petrol-elec­tric hy­brid, and the brand’s only all-wheel drive sedan.
