A limo or nothing!

 trendy auto homme juillet 2016

Big saloons hit the road again, bringing us king-size driving experiences.


Mercedes-Benz Class E
The new long-wheelbase version of this manufacturer’s E-Class was presented at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show. Rear passengers benefit from oodles of space and seats with lots of comfort functions while the whole interior screams modern luxury interpreted in upmarket materials.

Just 100 lucky owners worldwide will drive this luxe limousine dreamt up to mark the BMW Group’s centenary. Available with a choice of three engines and a four-wheel-drive option, it will have a white interior plus its own exclusive Centennial Blue Metallic paint finish.


Audi A8 L Extended
The occupants of Audi’s 6-seater A8 L Extended can enjoy the outstanding comfort that only a 6.36m car on a 4.22m wheelbase can provide. Designing and developing this mega-dimensioned new saloon took over a year of work. It’s available to order for European customers.
