2014 Audi A8L with Matrix LEDs spotted on test, India launch nears

2014 Audi A8L has been spotted near the ARAI campus in Pune. Featuring Matrix LED headlights, a first of its kind on any car in the world, this will result in the driver driving on high beam all the time but yet not blinding the oncoming driver.

A special camera will detect the oncoming vehicle which in turn results in Matrix system dimming the respective LED’s in that direction, blinding shine on the car up ahead and shuts off completely as and when the car approaches. It is this one feature which will be welcomed in a country like India, where it is a regular and annoying feature to drive with high beams. Audi A8L will also sport new tail lights and revised bumpers.
