  1. I have owned several different models of Audi vehicles each with the Quattro Awd. I used the Audi a8l to start and continue my limousine business. These cars are pure luxury and power. I’ve retired from driving and have passed my business to our children knowing that they are safe while they drive our clients to their destinations. I currently drive an a7 Quattro with the 3.0l turbo. What a great driving experience!
