Audi is going to launch the 2015 A8 at the upcoming 2013 Fankfurt Auto Show, and the brand is teasing its new flagship with a new set of sketches.
Audi is outfitting its top-of-the-line A8 with new goodies to help the car compete better with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Though most of the info is still under wraps, the German brand did reveal the A8′s new Matrix LED headlights, though due to regulations, they won’t be making it the US.
From the images, we see that the looks of the A8 are not dramatically changed from the car we have today, though it does look more squared off in these teaser sketches.

Audi currently sits in the number two spot out of global premium automakers and plans to sell more than 1.5-million vehicles this year, two years earlier than its initial target. The A8 however, has struggled in the large-luxury sedan segment, selling 38,600 units last year as opposed to the 80,300 S-Class vehicles that Mercedes moved and the 59,200 BMW 7 Series that were sold.
“We’re investing heavily in new products, developing leading-edge technology and expanding our global production network,” CFO Axel Strotbek said in the statement. “Despite challenging economic conditions, we’re sticking to our goals.”
