Audi details facelifted A8 image

The German based automaker Audi has recently announced the first details on the facelifted A8, which will make its public debut by the end of the year.

According to the car manufacturer, the Audi A8 facelift will get the matrix LED headlights with 25 high-beam LEDs grouped in five with reflectors. This system is, apparently, very precise and it can be turned off or dimmed as necessary, depending on the traffic conditions.

“In the new Audi A8, each headlight comprises 25 high-beam light-emitting diodes, arranged in groups of five per reflector. When the light switch is set to “automatic” and the high-beam headlights are on, the system is activated from 30 km/h (18.64 mph) on highways and from 60 km/h (37.28 mph) on city streets. The Audi Matrix LED headlights produce a quality of light with a special crystalline sheen. By day, too, they have a very attractive and distinctive look, which is reinforced by the new appearance of the daytime running lights”, as the carmaker is saying in its official press release.

The 2014 Audi A8 facelift will be officially unveiled by the end of this year. However, the model is already encountering a problem, in the United States, where the headlights have been banned back in 1968, due to a regulation dating. Additional details on the facelift Audi A8 are limited for the moment and will be announced close to its debut.
