“With this 2011 pricing strategy, Audi is determined to hit the sweet spot of performance, technology and value,” said Johan de Nysschen, President, Audi of America. “The model year ahead offers great promise for the Audi brand to build on its momentum story in the U.S.”

The all-new Audi A8 will start in price at $78,050, while the Audi R8 4.2 quattro price remains the same as it did in 2010. As for the Audi TT, which is due out in early 2011, this vehicle will start at an affordable $38,300.
