2018 Audi A8 Avant Rendering Is Pretty Much Predictable

While petrol heads have started dissecting the new generation Audi A8, using the official data, rendering artists are looking to create new versions based on the brand’s latest flagship saloon.

XTomi, in this case, chose to transform the 2018 Audi A8 from a four-door into an estate, or, in Audi-speak, an Avant.

The visual differences are more than obvious and include an elongated roof towards the rear and a tailgate. Other than that, it is practically identical to the recently unveiled saloon. Not that we expect it to happen anyway, even though Audi has shown an Avant version of the Prologue concept, from which the new A8 draws inspiration.

In the real world, the automaker is getting ready to put the full-size luxury saloon into production and ship the first units to dealers across the globe. Customers will have to pay at least €90,600 ($103,452) for the car in Germany, which is €3,400 ($3,882) more than a similar BMW 7-Series, and some €2,155 ($2,461) more than the entry-level Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
