Coming to a blue light brigade near you is the Audi A8.

It feels odd to have to drive, not be chauffeured, in a car with seats that can change temperature. The A8 is superb but doesn’t shrink around its driver as a 7-Series does.

It’s government-department bland too, with only its size to distinguish it from its lesser family members. Given the target market perhaps that was the idea.

Price R1 105 905

Engine 4,2-litre, V8 petrol; 273 kW; 445 Nm

Performance 0-100 km/h in 5,7 seconds; top speed 250 km/h; 9,5 litres/100 km
