The A8 offers the unique combination of Audi laser light and HD Matrix LED high beams for the very first time. With 10 times the luminous intensity of LED headlights, this optional lighting system creates incredible light clarity, with double the range of visibility over conventional lighting technology. In addition, a camera system at the front detects oncoming light sources and automatically dims the appropriate area so that oncoming vehicles will not be exposed to glare, whilst still providing unmatched illumination of the area ahead.
The optional Audi Matrix OLED rear lighting in 3D design gives the A8 a distinctive lighting signature, and allows for myriad light options. Dynamic sweeping indicators matching those on the front, use OLED technology for sharper, clearer light, and give the A8 an unmistakable presence, particularly in the dark. In addition to the safety gains of this advanced lighting technology, the automated lighting sequence when opening or closing the vehicle is impressive and adds to the A8’s exclusive character.
