Audi Forum Neckarsulm Hosts Magnolia White A8 L Exclusive

If you’re at odds with yourself trying to figure out which unassuming color would better compliment your brand new Audi A8 L 4.2 TDI Quattro, you may want to consider Magnolia White.

Make no mistake about it, this right here is an Audi Exclusive color, not something you’ll find on their website while configuring the most comfortable version of their flagship car. Getting your A8 L to wear Magnolia White means browsing through the Audi Exclusive catalog and committing to pay extra for your little guilty pleasure.

Of course, this goes for just about any Audi Exclusive color, since lots of people might not like their luxury saloon painted as such. In fact, we could argue that Magnolia sort of walks the line between pearl white and beige, which kind of makes it look like one of those typical Mercedes E-Class taxis from Germany.

But let’s not get too hung up on that, since there are plenty of other cool things about this car, completely unrelated to the exterior color.

First, let’s note (again) that we’re looking at an A8 L model, which means that you automatically sacrifice a tiny bit of performance in order to have more room at the back. How much you ask? Well, with this 4.2 TDI Quattro model, the 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time goes up by 0.2 seconds, as do the fuel consumption numbers – however its borderline insignificant.

Specs-wise, this car is good for 385 PS and 850 Nm (628 lb-ft) of torque, giving it just enough pull to get you from looking luxurious to doing 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds. To put that into perspective, not too long ago, those were Audi RS4 numbers, and this is a 2,170 kg (4,784 lbs) car.

The interior is obviously terrific in terms of quality, though the color combination might not be to everyone’s liking. It does look a bit too crowded in there what with all the Magnolia leather mixing it up with Saddle Brown leather, don’t you think?

Then you’ve got the aluminum inserts, the wooden trim and the Burgundy alcantara on the roof and on the pillars. Let’s face it, it’s more of an acquired taste.
