Audi A8 may not be a new model, but there is going to be a refreshment for the 2018 Audi A8 sedan. Come to think of it; the A8 line is the old-school line from Audi. It was first released in 1994, and it has been considered as one of the best luxury and premium four-door sedans in the auto industry.

When compared to the current A8, this one will be more powerful and handy – or so does Audi claim.
