Audi A8 L Extended front
The Audi A8 L (for long wheelbase) already has plenty of room inside, but for one customer that wasn’t enough – and Audi has built this huge six-door A8 L Extended for them.
With a wheelbase of 4.22m and a total length of 6.36m, the A8 L Extended offers lots of space for all six occupants, and took Audi a whole year to develop and build. The brand says the particualr challenges were strengthening the body sufficiently and keeping the styling in order with the huge mid-section.
There are extra braces throughout the roof and sills, helping to boost rigidity back to almost the same level as the standard A8 L. The entire body of the car from the A-pillar backwards was redeveloped, helping to add an extra 1.09m to the wheelbase.

Valcona leather covers the seats, which are all electrically adjustable, and the rearmost seats have access to an entertainment display and a cooler. There are sunblinds through the car to stop it getting too hot in the sun as well.
This one-off A8 L uses Audi’s 3.0-litre petrol V6 with 306bhp and 440Nm of torque, taking it from 0-62mph in 7.1 seconds and on to a top speed of 155mph. Brakes from the S8 model help stop the 2.4-tonne saloon, too.
