Audi A8 W12 Ex-Johnny Hallyday - 2001

"Que je t'aime, que je t'aime": at Benzin we're convinced that this song by Johnny was written for the car that followed him everywhere he went in Paris. And he was right to have chosen it: this A8 is one of the most comfortable and fast 12-cylinder sofas of the 2000s. You can try to take it for a ride, but it has all the amenities of a modern limousine, almost 20 years ahead of everyone else. So who gets to be the driver, and who gets to sit in Johnny's seat?
