However, this edition will only be available in Japan currently. In addition to the lineup of A8 3.0/4.0, Audi debuts the “5.5” model limited only in Japan, said the company.
It said that the model name 5.5 was inspired from 5(five) Go and 0.5(half) Han, coming from the term gohan, which means rice in Japanese.
“In honor of the Japanese rice-eating culture, the Audi A8 5.5 features the world’s first rice cooker in the rear sheet console. The rice cooker is exclusively designed on the basis of the unique performance of Audi A8’s 435PS／600Nm. From the intense heat convection inside the broad-brimmed Japanese rice cooking pot called, Hagama, it can generate heat directly from the core, cooking the perfect rice ever,” it said.
The company however did not give the details of the price it will be at.
