The Audi In The Transporter Movie – Audi A8L W12

Mar 30

Last night The Transporter 2, with Jason Statham and was on and of course I had to watch it. I enjoy any movie with good driving scenes and I enjoy them even more when those driving scenes include an Audi. What makes the Transporter 2 so good is not the plot, I couldn’t even tell you what the movie is about, however I could tell you all about the Audi A8L W12 the movie premiers. The 6.0L W12 Engine produces 450 horse power and has a 0-60MPH of less 5 seconds, not bad for a vehicle that is over 203 inches long. Don’t get me wrong, I love the power plant of the W12, but what really gets me going is the fit, finish and trim level of this vehicle. The 1,000 watt 14 speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system is just one of the spectacular pieces of technology that you can enjoy; combine that with the two rear entertainment systems and you have your self a mini movie theater. When A8L W12 is at idle’ it is very unexacting. The only way to distinguish the W12 from its smaller brother, the 4.2L, are the rectangular dual exhaust tips, strong W12 exterior badging, and if you know your Audi’s, the Star style L.E.D. headlights. Otherwise this monster of an engine is completely silent at idle. I had to try it for myself, so I pressed the push button start and the engine ignited with confidence, but was not over intrusive as you would expect from this size of power-plant. I was simply moving the A8L W12 into the light to take pictures and it really made my day. Take a look for yourselves at what this vehicle is made of and what the Portland Audi Clientele are stepping into. Like many other cities, Portland is not the biggest, but we still provide an executive product.

I got to see it!

From Chad Roberson on March 30th, 2009

I am lucky enough to own one of these fantastic cars and must say and it is by far the best car I have ever owned!

In sport mode, it is very surprisingly nimble quick for a car of its size! Takes many other vehicles by surprise.

the standard of the build both inside and out is exceptional, everything it so precise in the way it fits together.

Would love to know how many of the W12 LWB’s there are here in the UK

From Dalep on March 30th, 2009

The 4-Seater layout and rear seat entertainment = hotness. Thanks for sharing Scott!

From Rich on April 1st, 2009

nice pics, lovely car

From Gavin on April 3rd, 2009

FYI, the W12 does not have full LED headlights. The LEDs on the car are simply daytime running lights. The headlights are still adaptive bi-xenon lamps. The only Audi to offer full LED headlights is the R8 and it is an option. The full LED headlight will be standard on the R8 5.2

Bob,
Correct!

From Scott Mitchell on April 6th, 2009

Hi There, I was wondering if the W12 you just delivered allowed the Audio Playback thru the vehicles B&O speakers? I have a S8 with the exclusive RSE option as well. I was kind of dissapointed that you can only listen to the rear seat content thru headphones only.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
