Audi celebrates the 21st anniversary of the A8 with the one-of-a-kind Edition 21

When it comes to luxury on four wheels, only a few cars take the pedestal the way the Audi A8 does. First launched in 1994, the A8 has always been the perfect flagship luxury automobile, packing equal amounts of luxury, power and sporty dynamics. As the A8 turns 21, has unveiled a special edition model called the Edition 21. Only 121 of these special Audis will hit the UK shores this year, with sales beginning in November 2015. What sets this A8 apart is a number of exterior tweaks, including new front and rear bumpers and side sills. The 20-inch double spoke alloy wheels set this luxury saloon apart from its regular cousins. The car also comes with Audi’s new Matrix LED headlights.

Powered by a 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine that churns out 258hp and 427lb-ft of torque, the Edition 21 has a top speed of 155 mph and touches the 60 mph mark in just 5.9. The car comes clad in a special “titanium-look” finish, exclusive to this 21st anniversary model. The interior is available in two colours, cognac brown with black contrast stitching or black leather with red contrast stitching. The Edition 21 is available in both, standard and long wheelbase body styles, with prices starting at £72,525 (approximately $113,097).
