The Audi V8 was presented to the public at the 1988 Paris Motor Show. The vehicle was built at the Neckarsulm plant. The V8 was the only saloon vehicle in the luxury class to be able to boast permanent four-wheel drive.
The red strip of the tail lights was soon to be carried over to other Audi models. Above all the Audi 200 quattro 20V could hardly be distinguished from the V8 when viewed from the rear.
