Yeah, like the S4, which won every single performance metric against the 335 and C class
The previous generation A8 was cheaper than the 7 series and S class, and faster. Same with the previous generation S4 (V8 one), which was marginally slower than the M3 but significantly cheaper.
The current A5 and A8 are really the only underpowered ones (and this new A7 thingy).
They also have to keep the Audi a little reigned in as well, since the Flying Spur isn't gonna get much of a real update and they'll probably run that for twice as long as the A8.
True, but it's also pretty dumb because they are going to have people like my father move out of the marquee altogether for the Italian brands.
