There's only one A8 TFSIe plug-in model, the 60 TFSIe quattro, and it only comes in one trim level - 'Sport'. You'll need the best part of £85,000 for one of these (or well over £87,000 for the long wheelbase version). That represents a £13,000 premium over, say, a 'Sport'-trimmed 50 TDI Quattro diesel-engined A8, so you've really got to want the PHEV drivetrain here. At least you get expect plenty of kit for the money. Standard trim includes 19-inch '5-arm Turbine'-style cast alloy wheels, LED front and rear lights and power closing doors that click into place if not shut properly. There's also climate comfort seats in valcona leather, a head-up display and the brand's 'Parking system plus' set-up with a rear view camera. In addition, there's Audi's 'MMI Navigation plus and MMI touch' infotainment system - and of course the Audi virtual cockpit instrument binnacle screen.
Many customers will want to pay the extra for the optional 'Comfort and Sound Pack' which, for £2,000 more, gives you a Bang and Olufsen premium sound system with 3D sound, 17 loudspeakers and a 730-watt output. The Pack also includes a 360?? camera, a multi-coloured extended LED interior lighting pack and a 'Park assist with parking aid plus' system that will steer you into spaces.
