    Although the A8 is Audi's range-topping sedan today, there's an even more luxurious version on the way. The German luxury brand confirmed Thursday a new "especially luxurious and prestigious derivative."

    That's corporate speak for something really fancy coming to the A8 family. Although the company confirmed the car, it didn't provide any other information about what we should expect from a more premium A8. However, it's not the first time we've heard about such a model coming to life.
    A report from last September claimed Audi is busy readying the rebirth of the Horch brand. The Horch badge's revival could one day rival Mercedes-Maybach, which also operates as a sub-brand for Mercedes-Benz's most luxurious vehicles. Should Horch make a comeback, the A8 seems like an obvious choice. Today, Mercedes-Maybach sells an S-Class based sedan. It will soon add a GLS-based SUV. Horch may follow a similar strategy.

    A potential A8 Horch would likely include some specific badges, far more premium interior materials, and top-of-the-line powertrains. Likely, the engine would be a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W-12 from Bentley.

    Outside, like every other full size sedan, meh. I like the way the integrated the screens into the center console instead of gluing an ipad onto the dash like everyone else seems to be doing.

    Why would they revive this Horch brand (I've never heard of it) when they already have Bentley? Is it because Bentley doesn't make money (there was a thread the other week, I recall reading that of the VW empire, only Porsche and Audi make money)? Are they going to dump Bentley and make this Horch brand out of the Audi factories, thus cutting down costs vs. Bentley?

    Way too much bright metal and shiny black plastic in that interior, and it's so busy my eyes hurt.

    Oh, sorry, that isn't a Cadillac, it's German. A-OK then.
