The 2018 Audi A8 is set to make its official debut next week, and the German automaker has been doing a good job of teasing its new flagship luxury sedan. Audi has spent the past few weeks building up hype for the 2018 A8. Now, in a new promotional image, the automaker has previewed the side profile of the upcoming vehicle.

The 2018 A8 appears to be inspired by the Audi Prologue Concept, which was introduced back in 2014. The flagship car is also expected to launch a new era for the marque, As such, future vehicles from the automaker are expected to carry the same design language.
Apart from the teaser image, Audi also released a sneak peek at one of the upcoming vehicle's luxury features — a so-called relaxation seat at the rear which comes with a foot massage feature. There's also a touchscreen display where passengers can activate the feature and possibly adjust its settings.
Based on what has been revealed so far, car enthusiasts can expect the 2018 Audi A8 to be a spacious and comfortable vehicle.
