Audi A8 L

MONTH 3 By Tim Pol­lard

CAR (UK) - - Our Cars -

SEVEN HUN­DRED and twenty miles. That’s the range of our A8 when you brim its 82-litre tank. Enough to drive from Lon­don to Mi­lan. Seems un­likeIy? In mixed driv­ing, we’re av­er­ag­ing 37mpg. But get it on a mo­tor­way and the A8 shines. The ride is cush­iony, the stereo sub­lime, the seats sup­port­ive and soft – and fuel con­sump­tion reg­u­larly tops 44mpg. For a twotonne, 5.3-me­tre, all-wheel-drive limou­sine, this is noth­ing short of re­mark­able. Diesel’s not done.
