In hostile parts of the world, there can be no greater luxury than security. And the Audi A8 L Security has both in spades.
Based on the company's flagship long-wheelbase luxury sedan, the A8 L Security upgrades with enough armor plating and bulletproof glass to earn German VR 7 ballistic certification and withstand barrage from everything from assault rifles to anti-tank mines.
To help extricate itself from sticky situations, the A8 L Security is equipped with a 500-horsepower W-12 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. But don't expect it to come cheap. The previous model cost about $685,000, and we wouldn't expect the new version to cost much less.
