Product Overview

Audi A8 D2 (Typ 4D) is a full-size luxury sedan in production from 1994 to 1998, whereupon it received a facelift. It was available with a range of V6 and V8 engines that displaced 2.5 to 4.2 liters.
The more interesting engine option was undoubtedly the 4.2L naturally-aspirated V8. In the pre-facelift guise, it produced 300PS and 400Nm. Curiously for the time, Audi also offered a 2.5L TDI V6.
Prior to 1997, a 4-speed ZF 4HP24A automatic transmission was used. From 1997 on, it was replaced by the new 5-speed ZF 5HP unit: 5HP19 for FWD and 5HP24A for AWD. Unfortunately, all ZF automatic transmissions from these generations suffered from weak Clutch A drum design. The worst was the 5HP24A transaxle with integrated center- and front-differentials.
A unique characteristic of the D2 A8 (and following A8s) is the broad use of aluminum for the vehicle's construction. In this generation, it was marketed as "Audi Space Frame". Audi chose this more costly construction because the car would be too heavy with the AWD system compared to the competition.
Audi has made a good effort in aerodynamics, with a decent 0.28 coefficient of drag to show for it.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the D2 A8 comes with multi-link suspensions at all four corners. This provides the best cornering performance and tunability, at the expense of cost and a little bit of durability.
