2016 Audi A8 L Security- Safest Audi on the Planet

"Audi A8 L Security"

Audi’s most exclusive model happens to be the A8 L Security. Although this model is not the fastest or the most powerful among the lot, but it is undoubtedly the toughest Audi built.

Although you might think that this is a sedan that looks just like any other car, you’d know the difference when the need arises. However, this isn’t a sedan, it belongs to the limousine category of vehicles. It surely comes as a surprise as to the category classification of this car. But, well Audi has done it for a reason. In the meantime, here is a brief article that secures all the details about this safe on wheels:

Exterior:

This vehicle is armored with the best available materials. Don’t be fooled by its appearance from the outside. The A8 L Security appears just like any other car. However, the details and the precision that went into building this armored monstrosity is aesthetically way different. Once the skin of this hard to crack vehicle is peeled off, the vehicle reveals a literal fortress on wheels. This heavily armored limousine has a safety cell built that’s fortified with aramid fabric, special aluminum alloys, and hot-formed steel.

These materials keep things like bullets and shrapnel from piercing through the bulletproof glass and the body shell. The normal looking tires of this vehicle run-flat and continue functioning without any pressure for a certain distance. Battered, bruised or shredded, this car would still secure the person sitting inside.

The car belongs to the limousine category and meets class VR9 ballistic protection standards that is considered the highest security requirement for civilian high-security sedans as set by VPAM (an association of testing institutes that was established to create guidelines for the qualification of ballistic materials and their Bulletproof Levels) The protection’s guidelines state that the vehicle must withstand military-grade weapons like M14 and FAL-FN rifles from a distance of 10 meters.

The car must also handle at least three shots from any squad-based heavy weapon like an M60 machine gun from a similar distance and a blast of 15 kilos worth of TNT from two meters. That’s plenty of security in a car I’d say.

Interior:

Audi has retained luxury amidst security and has added a few luxury chops to extend the sense of comfort. Built for VIP’s, this Audi has a couple of additional features that come in handy. It has an inclusion of an armored communication box in the luggage compartment, an intercom for communicating with people outside the vehicle, and selective door locking.

Additionally, there are a handful of optional features that can be installed into the interior as per request. Audi’s patented emergency exit system, a extinguishing setup, and an emergency fresh air system that independently provides oxygen to the cabin can be added at an additional price and as per the specifications of the owner.

Engine:

Two different engines power the Audi A8L Security. The first engine, a 4.0-liter TFSI bi-turbo V-8 engine that produces 435 horsepower and 442.5 pound-feet of torque. The second, a naturally aspirated 6.3-liter W-12 FSI engine, pumps out 500 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will be offered with the eight-speed tiptronic transmission that sends power to all four wheels. With these top of the line security features, the A8 L Security flies from 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds. The top speed of this car just like its normal cousin (A8) clocks in at 130.5 mph.

Price:

Meant essentially for plutocrats, Audi has kept a very low profile with the price tag on the A8 L Security. Audi has already opened the first order booking for the secure Audi. The expected delivery time is scheduled in spring 2016. But needless to say, this vehicle will come at a bombshell of a price that would attract the likes of the super wealthy.

Bottom Line:

This vehicle isn’t something that is available at any Audi dealership. Audi took various lengths to provide the A8 L security its ballistic classification and this is certainly a plus point. The vehicle is certainly one of the safest cars for the super rich (Just like the Mercedes S Guard). The Luxury that Audi retains has also been kept constant. I loved the fact that Audi provides 2 engine choices and this is a brilliant feature. There are a few flaws to this car as well but it doesn’t really come out as a major issue. Overall, this is a bunker of sorts and you can be assured that no mortal can lay hands on you whilst you are seated in this car.

Audi super bowl commercial 2015 – a look

The best Audi super bowl commercial

German engineering at its finest is what drives Audi. While various competing brands were promoting their latest cars, Audi had various tricks up its sleeves to promote their cars in a different manner. Super Bowl is no advertisers joke, with plenty of money at stake and a whole lot of responsibility on the creative agency (ies)

Below, are a few commercials that made Audi a strong contender among other rivals at the Super Bowl. Although all the commercials might not be as impressive as you’d expect, a few of them are worth enjoying. Sit back, relax and try to enjoy these commercials, while we await the Audi super bowl commercial 2015

5. Blood Suckers Beware!!

If you are a teenager (girl) and you like movies, odds are that you probably like a vampire movie over the normal ones. Audi had created a commercial to give vamps, a taste of their own blood.

As a part of promoting the vehicle’s sharp headlights, Audi features an Ad that goes beyond the regular belief and tries a bit of spoof and friendly humor with the concept of vampires. This Audi super bowl commercial starts off with a few teenagers enjoying a late night party in the woods, sounds pretty normal right?

Turns out that these teenagers are blood sucking vamps who are awaiting a friend who has a very specific party booster (any guesses?) and once he reaches the spot in his Audi, the vamps are destroyed by the sharp light of the vehicle.

Ok, so this might sound a tad lame, especially if you are a guy, but then isn’t it a good thing that vampires are obliterated by an awesome car?

4. Green Cops:

Released in the year 2010, Audi’s Green Police was a Super Bowl Ad that showcased eco-enforcing Green Police that seem to run a police state of sorts. Arresting criminals is common but arresting a man for choosing a plastic bag at a checkout counter or may be storming a house for battery discarded in the garbage and handcuff another man on his front porch in a light bulb crackdown, sounds like the kind of thing that beats the word overrated right?

Presenting Audi’s A3 TDI, a clean diesel five seater car that delivers 42 miles per gallon on the highway, so named “green car of the year”, this Audi super bowl commercial had various controversies raised.

3. Prom:

Bravery is what defines us!!

Are your hormones raging for some pulverizing action? Audi’s “Prom” Super Bowl advertisement hits the spot.

What Prom is to a guy, an Audi is to its fan. This Audi super bowl commercial brings out the best in a scrawny looking guy so much so that even when he has no date on prom night, his dad gives him the keys to his Audi, he drives it to school and heads straight to the prom queen and plants a kiss (that requires some serious guts). It does take serious ball$ to do that, the result of his brevity is shown on the red patch on his eye (wonder how he got that :P)

This is a good commercial because it has the youth friendliness combined with plausible action and sequences that can most likely happen to anyone. This is a good attempt by Audi to promote its beast.

Watch and enjoy J

2. Prison Break:

“Escape the confines of old luxury”

Sophisticated robbery with pleasing humor constitutes a great Audi A8 super bowl Ad. Watch this incriminating commercial as a few aged, sophisticated gentlemen who try breaking out of an extravagant prison of sorts. After performing back-breaking stunts that seem impossible for their age, watch as the commercial gives you a few hints of humor and also keeping up to the entire sketch of the prison break.

Once the two prisoners are out, there are two vehicles in front of them, a chauffeur opening the doors of a Mercedes and an Audi A8 parked just beside it. While, one prisoner chooses to go with the Mercedes that leads him directly to prison, the other escapee drives out in style.

The Audi A8 promotes contemporary luxury and urges the buyers to choose what’s new in luxury over the conventional trap of old luxury.

Again, a good attempt by Audi to develop a smart commercial, which sticks to the main point.

1. God Father:

This is another classy commercial of the Audi R8 that recalls the Godfather movie. This Audi super bowl commercial shows a rich man awaking in his bed and finds that he is covered in oil and grease rather than being covered in blood. He also finds that his old car bumper and grill is placed at his foot of the bed under the covers rather than a horse head.

The message is pretty clear, “Old luxury has been put on notice” the camera pans out of the mansion front and showcases the new Audi R8 luxury sports car that revs its engine and leaves the scene of the crime.

If you have watched Godfather movie, you will be able to figure out the reference. It is a smart attempt by Audi to promote the R8 in a peculiar style.
