Audi Greenlights 21-Foot A8L Because Who Wants a Minivan?

It’s like a family car, but hearse-ier

Some days, growing up can be hard.

The day the missus takes you to the dealership to trade in your sport sedan for a minivan is one of those days.

Unless you’re the unnamed European customer who convinced Audi to build him an extended A8 with six doors, six seats and a 13.8-foot wheelbase that measures almost 21 feet and tips the scales at 5,331 pounds.

Then that day is just the day you walked away with a really awkward custom sports sedan.

In addition to riding on 19-inch rims and packing Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system, the king-size car can do 0-62 in 7.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 MPH thanks to its 310 HP, three-liter TFSI engine.

The interior of the vehicle is upholstered in velvet beige Valcona leather and features electrically adjustable seats, a rear seat entertainment display and a cool box, which is German for road soda holder. Although it was supposed to be a one-off model, Audi has already received requests from other buyers for one of the custom concept cars in moonlight blue.

Apparently the title of Europe’s most stylish soccer dad is a coveted one.
