Audi A8

Heavy on style, Audi has tearmed up with Bang & Olufsen to bring a powerful, refined speaker system to the A8 which will make drivers doubt their home hi-fi system. The luxury car for the audiophile. Why? A Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System is inside. When you start the car, two small tweeters emerge from the dashboard, designed to offer a balanced acoustic sound stage. The ‘acoustic lens’ tech is the same found in Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 5 speakers. In total, there’s 19 speakers inside the A8 which includes a sub woofer right at the back, bringing the total output power to a enormous 1,400 watts. Because the speakers are hidden, the temperature of the brutish amplifier is kept to a minimum. The traditional B&O can be seen in all the speakers - for slick, classical music at speed, the A8 does a great job of sounding better than your home hi-fi. Price: £53,690 Audi
