Although the styling updates are not radical, they manage to improve the overall look of the car. The redesigned headlights and taillights are the most obvious changes, bringing a more contemporary look to the A8 – especially the intricate Matrix LED headlamps, which are available as optional equipment (LED headlights are standard for all V8 models).
More significant changes have taken place under the hood, with the 2014 A8 engines gaining power and efficiency upgrades. The 3.0 TFSI now has 310 PS (306hp, +20hp), while the 4.0 TFSI churns out 435PS (429hp, +9hp). The diesels are also more powerful - the 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel now has 258 PS (254hp, +4hp), while the 4.2 TDI Clean Diesel delivers 385 PS (380hp, +30hp) and an impressive 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) of torque (+50 Nm/36 lb-ft).
Created with a little help from Vossen Wheels, which described the RS5 Coupe’s angry looks as a “pissed off stormtrooper” in a nod to the white-clad elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire from the Star Wars movies, the Audi features a makeover that starts with the front end and OSS Designs’ colorful LEDs that surround the factory lights.
The smoked headlamp lenses and the gloss-black finish between the lights and the grille, complete the front-end updates. The tune continues with custom side skirts, wider rear fenders with vents, rear diffuser and bumper, plus a ducktail rear spoiler integrated into the boot, which supposedly works with the RS5’s stock retractable rear spoiler. The 20-inch Vossen VVSCC5 concave alloy wheels complete the look.
