2011 Audi A8
For 2011 Audi has made some dope enhancements to the A8 such as, the car comes with full LED headlamps which can adjust direction and throw on the basis of the navigation system, a new MMI including handwriting recognition, an updated 4.2-liter FSI V8 engine with 372 horse power and an eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox. The A8 also have better fuel efficiency, with the company claiming 15 percent better fuel efficiency then the V8. Check inside for more pics and to learn about the dope upgrade to Audi's navigation system!!
Another dope feature is the 3D Navigation!! The sedan comes with an 8-inch LCD screen that shows you land marks in 3D, thanks to a collaboration with the Google Earth and terrain-mapping functionality. The new system will use a UMTS modem for transferring data to the navigation system for downloading the maps. The data is then used to make an online search through a multimedia interface through which a user can search for "Cabinet maker" which displays the results. The mounted computer then matches the street data with the Google Earth 3D terrain model and provides route guidance through the map. Talk about life-like real-time support!
