Audi A8 L Security 2015 release date
Audi says that in some areas of the bumper offers and VR 9 and VR10 protection . This model is now available for ordering , and delivery vehicles will begin in the third quarter of this year .
At 5.27 meters (17.29 ft) long and with a 3.12 meter (10.24 ft) wheelbase, the new Audi A8 L Security is a representative car that is, visually, scarcely distinct from the production variation. And like its mainstream equivalent, its stylish, sophisticated design is now more meaningful: The hood, the Singleframe grille and the bumper have actually acquired sharper curves. The fronts lights have actually been made flatter and the LED rear illuminations have been modified as well.

LED headlights are part of the common specification combined with the V8 engine; the W12 includes Audi’s innovative Matrix LED innovation. With these fronts lights, the high-beam comprises 25 small, specific light-emitting diodes per unit that can be switched on and off or dimmed separately as required. The headlight device can quite exactly mask other road users from the cone of light, without considerably lessening illumination of the roadway.
When creating the A8 vehicle line, Audi included the high-security version in its plans right from the outset, leading to an integral general concept that is much above retrofit options. The contortion residential properties of all vital components were investigated to make sure the brand-new A8 L Security exhibits exceptional accident habits which additionally finds to lessen the influence on the other celebration. Complete with its quattro permanent all-wheel drive, it is still the lightest high-end sedan in the high-security section.
Its basis is a tweaked production physical body made largely from light weight aluminum baseding on the Audi Space Frame (ASF) concept at the Neckarsulm plant, the house of the A8; therefore, it evaluates roughly 40 percent less than a comparable body made from steel. The components that are specific to this variation are made by hand in a safe manufacturing area. It takes specifically trained employees about 450 hours to fit them, before the physical body is sent out back to the plant for last assembly.
The new Audi A8 L Security has actually been officially licensed by the German Ballistics Testing Center in Munich; it abides by the demands of the training VR 7 ballistic security standard in accordance with the BRV 2009 standard. BRV stands for “Bullet Resistant Vehicles”. Training VR 7 imposes the strictest requirements on civilian high-security cars: The physical body panels and glazing of the passenger cell should hold up against shooting with NATO sub-caliber ammo. In certain areas, the armor plating on the A8 L Security even follows the criteria for the classes VR 9 and VR 10. Resistance to dynamites is examined according to the ERV 2010 standard (Explosion Resistant Vehicles).
The high-security sedan’s resident cell, which is incorporated into the body as a unitary component, provides incredibly challenging, highly resistant materials– heat-formed armor steel, aramide fabric, ceramic, an unique light weight aluminum alloy, and multi-laminated glass. The safety products overlap at changes, for optimal security.
The armor-plated automobile floor made from an unique aluminum alloy has the very same purpose. The new Audi A8 L Security could resist strike by army hand grenades.
For the door windows, windshield and rear home window, Audi makes use of unique glass with a splinter-inhibiting polycarbonate layer on the in. As an alternative, there are electromechanical side glass that almost totally open the panes. A doorstop feature holds the door in any preferred position.
It houses the control devices for the motor vehicle and interactions electronics, as well as an additional electric battery and components of the optional elements that raise passenger security still further. The extremely armor-plated communications box has comparatively lightweight ceramic doors, and its frame is made from aluminum.
The basic devices of the brand-new Audi A8 L Security additionally includes the intercom device that the travelers could utilize to communicate with the outside world with the windows closed. It comprises a loudspeaker in the Singleframe grille, along with microphones for the interior and for the vehicle’s environments.
