Audi could not sit back and watch the all new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-class get all of the attention this year.  The folks in Ingolstadt have been busy preparing the mid-cycle update of their flagship A8 and S8 sedans.  Now Audi teases their refreshed  cars with two short videos on their Youtube channel (  The cars are shown veiled in white silk, but it does reveal several close-ups as you can see here.

Audi shows us the front wheel with ceramic brake rotors hiding within.  They also show off the new all LED headlight design.  These headlights are not only for style.  They are capable of intelligent lighting patterns to improve night driving for all drivers, not just the pilot of the new A8/S8.  Audi will surely not disappoint with a host of latest technology throughout the new A8 and S8.  But will the Audi have interior smell control like on the new Merc?

Expect to see these beauties in full on August 21 via the Audi internet channel.  And you can also see them in the flesh at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show next month.  The refreshed Audi A8/S8 will likely go on sale in the latter part of 2014 as 2015 models.  Check this out to learn more (including the smell control system) about the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-class.

In the meantime, enjoy this TFLcar 0-60 MPH review of the 2013 Audi S8 as this luxury cruiser kicks Roman in the chest with a series of blistering runs.
