|The Audi A8 is Audi's luxury car flagship. It competes against such cars as the Jaguar XJ, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Lexus LS 430 and BMW 7 Series.
The A8 can trace its lineage to the Audi V8 Quattro of 1989-1994, developed by combining two Volkswagen Golf GTI engines. The A8 debuted as a model line in its own right for the 1997 model year in the United States and for the 1994 model year in Europe and was unique at the time for having an aluminium bodyshell, a distinction that is now shared by the Jaguar XJ. The first-generation Audi A8 used Audi's D2 platform. The second-generation A8, which was introduced in the 2004 model year, uses Audi's D3 platform. The first and second generations, therefore, are referred to as D2 and D3, respectively.
