The 1994 Audi Space Frame (ASF) Studie became the A8. In 1993 this technology carrier was presented on the IAA in Frankfurt. It was fascinated not only by its technic. The polished aluminum body alone would have been enough to make it a show-winner. The V8 TDI showed even back then that the Diesel engine would continue its road to success in the luxury class. The A8 on the right has the 3.3 liters V8 TDI.
Today S8 (followed by the other S-models) wears aluminum rearview mirrors to commemorate the polished body of the concept car.
