Even if the car is still more than a year away from its official launch, not so long ago we saw the 2018 Audi A8 camouflage without any real placeholders and like many of us expected, the car Seems much like an evolution of the old model rather than a completely new car. The front side seems to take some traces of design from the Prologue concept car that was presented a few years ago, while in the back it will share its design with the new Q7 and its individual LEDs for the taillights. The new 3D hexagonal grille and recessed headlights give a more aggressive look than before, but the car is still quite tame compared to the new Series 7 for example.
