Audi A8

The Audi A8 has been awarded Chauffeur Car of the Year at the recent Limousine and Chauffeur Show Industry Awards.

Audi revealed its A8 Long-wheel base 3.0 TDi model at the Limousine and Chauffeur Show recently which impressed the judges so much, it clinched the first award of its kind in the UK.

Judges applauded the Audi A8 LWB for its performance, rear passenger comfort, engine variants and maintenance costs.

Paul Gibson, Editor of The Chauffeur Magazine, the industry’s leading trade magazine said, "As the industry grows, the choice of vehicles available to chauffeurs also grows. Audi should be very proud that the A8 long-wheel base has stood out as the best vehicle in its class."

Audi UK also launched its new Prestige Chauffeur Program - a new initiative designed to bring all the exclusivity of the Vorsprung Durch Technik brand to both the consumer and the client.

Liz McConnell, Specialist Sales Manager for Audi Business Sales, was delighted with Audi’s representation at the inaugural show and even more so by the A8’s award!

Liz comments: "The level of interest in Audi we registered throughout the show made it an extremely worthwhile venture for us, especially as we also beat some pretty exalted luxury cars to an award judged not only by respected authorities in the chauffeuring industry, but also by professional drivers across the country who spend most of their working lives in luxury saloons."
