The ultra luxurious 2012 Audi A8L W12 is finally going on sale in the U.S, and has been priced at a whopping $134,375. This is an enormous sum of money considering the most expensive A8L sells for $85,575. The A8L is powered by a 372-hp 4.2-liter V8 and can get from 0-62 mph in 5.1 seconds – more than adequate for most people.

For the extra $48,000, the W12 buyer upgrades to a 6.3-liter twelve-cylinder engine producing 500-hp and 463 lb-ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of 4.4 seconds. More impressive than that though are the standard 22-way power seats with ventilation and massage capabilities, a panoramic sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system and the Audi Connect infotainment system with Google Earth.
