Giving A Foot Massage Is One Way To Promote The New Audi A8

Design features, high-tech equipment, and its marketed Level 3 autonomous driving system have all been left aside by Audi in their latest A8 commercial, which focuses on something a bit more enjoyable.

But what could be better than having your flagship saloon drive you around in autonomous mode as you enjoy the scenery behind the wheel? Why, of course, the A8’s  foot rubbing function if you hop back at the rear and which can be combined with other types of massage, including for your back, with three levels of intensity to choose from.

To put this feature to the ultimate test, Audi offered six random people the opportunity to get inside the new generation A8 and enjoy 10 minutes of massage, at the Munich airport, in Germany, comparing its rear seat to “a wellness area”.

“Whether ‘wave’, ‘stretch’, ‘relaxation’ or ‘vitalization’ – in every mode, the seat massages for ten minutes”, says Audi. “The comfort seat in the rear is especially cozy: it offers an additional comfy footrest that can both massage and warm up feet.”

There’s no happy-ending to this video, because that would be the unveiling the new S8 for most Audi enthusiasts out there. The performance version of Audi’s luxury limo should debut next year, likely powered by the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine of the Porsche Panamera, delivering around 680hp.

    I’m not Miss Daisy. I don’t really care how comfy the BACK seat is. And I don’t want to pay for all of those features.

    • RIGHT?

    • Status

      Then don’t buy a luxury car if you don’t want to comfortable, either in the front or back seats.

      • Craig

        Fuck off.

        • Status

          So I would take it that a Mitsubishi Mirage would be more your style. You don’t pay for comfort in that car.

          • Craig

            You’re a miserable pos.

          • DON’T BOTHER WITH THIS GUY. STATS LIKES TO PISS PEOPLE OFF WITH PERSONAL COMMENTS.

          • Craig

            Thanks MICHGO! I try not to let him get under my skin. Problem is…. I can’t block him and highly suspect he owns Car scoops. [No Kidding] Anyway…. Merry Christmas!

          • THERE A PEOPLE WHO DON’T SET UP ACCOUNTS SO YOU CAN’T BLOCK THEM. YOU’VE PROBABLY NOTICE SCREEN NAMES THAT ARE SUSPICIOUSLY SIMILAR TO THEIR COMMENT.
            MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO.

            And you’re unaware that if you want to own a luxury car, you have to pay for the whole ball of wax. You cheapen out with the rear seats, and your rear passengers will know you’re a cheapskate and a fraud who wealth can only buy them a veneer of luxury.

  • Happy-endings could always be arranged for the backseat passenger via drive-by…

  • JUST WHEN YOU TRAINED THE KIDS NOT TO KICK THE BACK OF THE SEAT…
    IT LOOKS KINDA AWKWARD HAVING TO ADJUST THE FRONT SEAT AT JUST THE RIGHT ANGLE AND HOLD YOUR FEET IN PLACE.

  • Moveon Libtards

    A horribly staged commercial. Oh, look, the man bun dude is so “diverse”….except he is wearing the same grey on grey as the interior. So obvious.

    That grey-grey-grey-grey interior is just aweful for a premium car. Looks like what Chevy did 15 years ago with its family cars.

  • Transpower

    Too bad the exterior design is so conventional. The S7 is much more beautiful.

  • europeon

    1:43 – he should have said Moscow, not Italy.
    I’ll show myself out…

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    Yeah, a foot massage is just what all those top end VPs need after a long day sitting in the office in those $1000 loafers….
