While this teaser won't knock your socks off, what you're looking at here is the first official teaser shot of the new Audi A8. The photo shows Audi's new headlamp system made fully of LEDs but there's more to it than just that.
"In the new Audi A8, the turn signal lights will now indicate the turning direction in an innovative way, which has the potential to significantly enhance traffic safety," Audi said in a statement. "That is because the lights provide a visual signal that can be clearly and quickly perceived, even at long distances and in poor visibility."
Each headlight is made up 19 LEDs arranged in a strip that is divided into seven blocks. Each tail light consists of 24 LEDs in eight segments. When flashing, the blocks are sequentially activated at 20 millisecond intervals from the inside outwards. After 150 milliseconds, all LEDs are bright and after another 250 milliseconds they illuminate with full intensity.
Audi has always been quite innovative when it comes to headlamps and tail lights.
The 2015 Audi A8 will make its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
