Do not expect the new Audi A8 to show up at the IAA 2009 next month. The new luxury sedan isn’t expected to make its world debut until the Detroit motor show next year. However, we can show you the first spyshots of the brand new A8 driving around in the New Mexico, USA.
A member at Autoblog.com spotted the car while passing through Arizona on a cross-country road trip. At first they thought it had to be the new A6, but it looks like they caught the short-wheelbase, Euro-spec Audi A8 with amber LED turn signals.
The Audi testing department fitted an inverted Mitsubishi diamond-star logo next to a Mitsubishi’s “jet-fighter” grille as a part of their disguise. Nice try guys!
