Marc Lichte already previewed the make over with the series of Prologue ideas, which, evaluating by our latest spy shots, the brand-new A8 will closely resemble. The size of the vehicle isn’t changing much compared to the current A8, though the nose looks to be a little bit longer.
Under the brand-new sheet metal is the latest evolution of Audi’s MLB platform, which is destined for a number of Audi models as well as some from Volkswagen, such as the brand-new Touareg.
