The Audi A8​ is a four-door, full-size, luxury sedan manufactured and marketed by the German automaker Audi​ since 1994. Succeeding the Audi V8, and now in its fourth generation, the A8​ has been offered with both front- or permanent all-wheel drive—and in short- and long-wheelbase variants. The first two generations employed the Volkswagen Group D platform, with the current generation deriving from the MLB platform. After the original model’s 1994 release, Audi released the second generation in late 2002, the third in late 2009, and the fourth and current iteration in 2017. The design of the A8 and A8 L was based on the Audi Prologue concept. The new generation, code-named D5 Typ 4N, was unveiled at the Audi Summit in Barcelona on 11 July 2017 and presented at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The standard wheelbase A8 went on sale in November 2017, and the long wheelbase A8 L was launched in 2018.
