The A8 simply offers chauffeurs the whole package – a great chauffeur programme, massive amount of luggage and passenger space and outstanding fuel economy.’ He added; “As many chauffeur businesses suffered during the snowy weather over the last few years, the quattro system makes sure that the wheels continue to turn, when other 
companies may find themselves stranded. This is what set the A8 apart from its competitors in this 
category.’ The Chauffeur Car of the Year Awards are run by industry online magazine www.thechauffeur.com were launched in 2005.
