Foot-Massaging 2018 Audi A8 Teased

The upcoming Audi Summit is less than a week away, so naturally Audi is beginning to tease its all-new flagship sedan with our most clear view yet. In addition to the profile teaser, the 2018 A8 is also confirmed to feature a foot massager for rear seat passengers, because every luxury buyers needs one.

Starting with the teaser shot (above), it confirms a lot of what we already suspected about the new A8. The profile sports two character lines that were featured on the Prologue Concept, while the greenhouse appears slightly sleeker than today’s car if you squint.

New LED headlights and taillights round out the obvious notes of this evolutionary design change for¬†Ingolstadt’s flagship sedan.

Other details about the car have already been confirmed as well, including powertrain details. All 2018 A8’s will feature a 48-volt electric system, which will allow every A8 to be a mild hybrid to increase the big sedan’s fuel economy numbers.

Audi also recently confirmed the car will feature a rear seat foot massager. The confirmation was made via a YouTube video (below) as part of a promotion for the upcoming Spiderman movie.

The teasing of the 2018 A8 will stop next week once the car is formally revealed in Barcelona at the Audi Summit.
