quattro GmbH Shows Customised A8
Audi AG Press Release

World premiere in Paris: quattro GmbH is presenting the first customised Audi A8 at the motor show in the French capital. This luxury saloon can be identified on the outside by large-format 20-inch wheels of 9-spoke design which give its sporty silhouette an additional dynamic emphasis. Size 255/35 ZR 20 tyres show off the dynamic qualities of the chassis to full advantage.

The quattro GmbH team has also refined the ambience of the A8 still further. The interior is trimmed with Valcona leather and Alcantara in the contrasting colours alabaster white and dark blue. Exclusive brown myrtle is used for the wood inlays.

The A8 exhibit in Paris represents the start of the Audi exclusive programme for the brand's flagship. quattro GmbH, a fully owned subsidiary of AUDI AG, will gradually expand this range over the next few months. With its collection of exclusive equipment and special fittings, quattro GmbH will satisfy the demands of all those A8 owners who wish to have their car customised to suit their personal requirements.
