On the outside the 2012 Audi A8 is a very stylish car which is sure to get you noticed. The massive chrome grill looks great and really stands out. The Xenon headlights combined with the world famous LED running lights are signature Audi. The A8 also has a set of huge 19-inch alloy wheels at all four corners.
On the inside the Audi A8 is plenty spacious with enough room for 4 adults and all their belongings. The A8-L is the long wheelbase version and this platform stretches the amount of interior room a couple more inches. The interior of the car makes you feel like you are in a luxurious living room. Everything is beautiful and Audi did a great job of finding the perfect balance between woods and metals that make up the trim pieces. All the buttons and controls are top notch since Audi understands what a luxury buyer demands. The A8-L is a real driver's car; it is response and fun to drive.
The 2012 Audi A8 is a true joy to drive. It you are going to spend $80k on a high end luxury car then you owe it to yourself to take a long test drive. When shopping for a full sized luxury automobile make a checklist and compare the various cars in the segment. Audi has really captured the essence of what a luxury car should be with the 2012 Audi A8-L.

2013 Lamborghini Aventador Test Drive & Exotic Car Video Review
Wow is about the only word that comes to mind when you view the 2013
Lamborghini Aventador for the first time. Press the throttle and this
exotic car warps your mind. This sexy beast is the rightful heir to the
Lambo throne and replaces the Murcielago as the ubber raging bull. With any
new Lamborghini release, the world becomes enamored and awestruck, but this
all-wheel drive beast has really upped the exotic car game and left its
competitors in the dust. So what's it cost to drive the pinnacle of
automotive engineering? Try a cool $400k on for size!
Check out all the specs on the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador
50 years ago a man named Ferruccio who owned a successful tractor company
wanted to buy a sports car so he bought a Ferrari. He liked the car but had
a few suggestions to make it better. When Enzo Ferrari snubbed Ferruccio
the battle for exotic car supremacy was born. Now on the 50th anniversary
of Lamborghini, we have this, the greatest Lamborghini's of all time: the
There is a new king at the top of the Lamborghini family tree. The
Murcielago has been loved for many years and the Aventador has stepped up
to take its place. This is the biggest and baddest Lambo you can buy. The
car reviewed here in the test drive video sports a $14,000 matte paint job
that looks amazing. Up front the headlights are gorgeous with the unique
LED daytime running light "Y" style. Down the side you notice the massive
wheels with the huge carbon-ceramic brakes and bright orange calipers. The
car is very low measuring only 44 inches tall. The scissor doors look
fantastic and are a Lamborghini trade mark. Out back the engine is open
only covered by a transparent bonnet allowing you to see the heart of this
beast. The wicked looking tail lamps mimic the pattern seen on the
headlights. The whole look is aggressive supercar super amazing!
Under the bonnet is a 6.5 liter V-12 engine that produces 691 horsepower and 508 lb-ft. of
torque. This rocket ship blast from 0-60 MPH in 2.9 seconds! Keep your foot
planted and the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador has a top speed of 207 MPH. The
ISR gearbox is a 7-speed transmission that shifts in milliseconds. Another
innovation on the Aventador is the push-rod style suspension. This setup is
more commonly seen in Formula-1 race cars.
The interior on the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador is inspired by a fighter jet
cockpit. The steering wheel feels great in your hands; the center stack is
perfectly angled to allow the driver to monitor climate, navigation, and
audio. The gauges are not analog rather a TFT Screen.
Driving the Aventador is the closest thing to flying a fighter jet. The
acceleration is wild and the engine is ferocious making lots of noise since
its mounted right behind the cabin. Besides the power, this exotic car
handles fantastically. There are 3 different drive modes on the Aventador.
Strada is the normal mode where traction control is at its fullest, the Exhaust note is muted a bit, and the
shifts are easier. Sport mode relaxes the traction control and shifts get a
little quicker. For the real Lamborghini experience, pop the car into Corsa
mode and the car go on full tilt with lightning fast shifts.
At over $400k this car is only for the rich. But they are getting an
amazing machine that is wild, brash, in your face, and aggressive. It's
everything you would want from a Lamborghini Supercar! There is no better
way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini than by driving the

2012 Porsche Panamera Test Drive & Luxury Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/porsche/panamera/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Porsche
Panamera is an interesting combination of automotive delicacies. The
Panamera is one part sports car, one part luxury car, one part hatchback,
and one part sedan. Over the past decade, Porsche has created a few unique
vehicles to target a broad range of car buyers. The Boxster is aimed at the
entry level sports car enthusiast while the Cayenne is aimed at those
looking for a quick SUV. But the Panamera offers 911 performance with a
usable back seat. The 2012 Porsche Panamera can range from $75,200 for the
base model all the way to $173,200 for the top of the line turbo S model.
The vehicle tested in this video is the base model Panamera 4 (AWD). It is
powered by a lightweight and direct injected 3.6 liter V-6 engine that
makes 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is the famous PDK twin-cutch 7-speed unit that
shifts lighting quick. Fuel economy on the 2012 Porsche Panamera is 18 MPG
in the city and 26 MPG on the highway thanks in part to an auto start/stop
system which shuts down the engine while the car is sitting idle. Sixty MPH
flies by in 5.8 seconds and the Panamera 4 has a top speed of 159 MPH. The
Panamera handles incredibly well thanks to the Porsche Traction Management
system. The AWD monitors driving situations and can adjust power as need.
The Panamera is equipped with Anti-Slip Regulation and Automatic Brake
Porsche Active Suspension Management is optional on the Panamera 4. This
system provides electronic dampening at all 4 corners of the car thus
reducing body roll and increasing handling. The system will also tighten up
the setting based on the selection of modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport
Plus. The rims are 18-inch alloys wrapped in sticky rubber. The 2012
Porsche Panamera comes with huge 360 mm brakes up front and 330 mm brakes
out back. The calipers are six-piston units. Safety wise besides all the
electronic computer controlled systems, the Panamera 4 features a full
compliment of 2-stage airbags for both the front and rear passengers.
With the rear seats up the Panamera has a luggage compartment with over 15
cubic feet of storage space. But with he seats down the hatchback design
allows for over 44 cubic feet of cargo room which is a large amount for
this segment. And believe it or not the 2012 Porsche Panamera can tow up to
4850 lbs. The Panamera is a very efficient and powerful sports car that
offers a high level of luxury and sophistication while being able to
transport 4 passengers in style.

2012 Audi Q7 Test Drive & Luxury SUV Review
http://www.autobytel.com/audi/q7/2012/?id=32972 Audi has done a great job
of taking the wonderful driving experience from their line of luxury cars
and transferring that into the 2012 Audi Q7 Luxury SUV. This is a heavy
vehicle at over 5000 lbs. but it definitely does not feel that way. The Q7
delivers a nice tight driving experience with plenty of power. The base
price for the 2012 Audi Q7 is $46,250 with the top of the line S-Line
Prestige costing almost $60,000.
According to automotive analysts; the luxury SUV segment is dying. But it
is nice to see that Audi has stayed true to its brand and still offers a
7-passenger luxury SUV. A luxury SUV should look as elegant and as
sophisticated as possible. And the Q7 is one great looking machine. From
the front you will notice Audi's beautiful and massive front grill. Also
the LED headlights and running lights make quite a visual statement.
There are 2 different engines offered on the 2012 Audi Q7. The first is a
turbocharged direct injected (TDI) 3.0
liter V-6 engine that makes 225 horsepower and 406 lb-ft. of
torque. This engine also nets 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway
which is at the top of the fuel economy scale for luxury SUVs. The other
engine choice is a supercharged 3.0 liter V-6 engine making 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft. of
torque on the S-Line model. Power is transferred through an 8-speed
automatic transmission which helps with fuel economy. This engine with more
HP gets 16 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway.
The Q7 is also a capable vehicle off road or in tough weather conditions.
The Quattro all-wheel drive system paired with many sophisticated
technological advancements give the Q7 a real leg up on the competition. On
the inside the Audi Q7 can seat up to 7 passengers. The Q7 is loaded with
everything you would expect in a high end luxury SUV from Audi.
If you are an automobile enthusiast and you want more than just a truck for
your SUV like the Escalade, then you should get behind the wheel of a 2012
Audi Q7. This is a tremendous German Sport Utility Vehicle.

http://www.autobytel.com/lexus/ls-460/2012/?id=32972 The original Lexus LS
400 debuted back in 1989 and helped to redefine what a luxury car is as

depth. The headlights are HID with an Adaptive Front Lighting Feature. The
taillights feature LEDs which are more noticeable than regular bulbs. The
sport edition comes with huge 19-inch alloy rims along with a cool sporty
grille. The technology found on the Lexus LS 460L is the best stuff that

It doesn't matter if you're looking for a car to drive, or to be driven in,
the A8 is thoroughly impressive in both areas. It packs a host of clever
technology to make the driving experience as seamless as possible,
including lights that are connected to the sat-nav and will illuminate
junctions, bend round corners and even dip when they sense oncoming
traffic. A system called Audi Drive Select also features, and allows
drivers to tweak the steering, suspension and gearbox to make the car more
sporty or more comfortable. The cabin itself is finished in high-grade
materials and is very logically laid out. Customers looking for a bit more
space to stretch out in the rear can opt for the long wheelbase version.
