There are too many luxuries to list, but some highlights of the 2006 A8 V8 include 16-way power seats, a navigation system, sunroof, leather upholstery, memory settings, leather and wood trim, audio controls on the steering wheel, a CD changer, OnStar, trip computer, heated mirrors, universal remote, and a first aid kit.

It's a lot like living in your own home, and it costs almost as much. But it's a lot faster. The 2006 Audi A8 L W12 is a top-end mid-size luxury sedan that also has a fun dose of fire power. It hits a satisfying 450-hp with its 6.0-liter DOHC W12 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Quattro all-wheel drive is a staple, along with a self-leveling suspension and limited slip differential. The 2006 A8 L W12 sits on 19-inch wheels and features ABS brakes, traction and stability control, a tire monitor, xenon headlights, self-leveling headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and front, side, and head airbags.
With room for five, passengers are swathed in luxury inside the 2006 A8 L W12. Valcona leather seats, 16-way power front seats, 4-way power lumbar for everybody, heated seats, and massaging front seats will make you never want to get out. Other features include remote start, four-zone climate control, a wood wheel, navigation system, memory settings, cruise control, sunroof, heated washer fluid and heated mirrors that reverse tilt to help with parking, DVD player, Bluetooth, and a 12-speaker sound system. Options are limited to a solar sunroof, refrigerator, 20-inch wheels, and a heated steering wheel. Owners praise the expert handling, comfortable ride, quality of the interior materials, W12 power, and overall luxury. A common gripe focuses on problems with the automatic trunk release.
