The Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series are considered two of the most luxury, large saloons on sale today, sitting as the flagship in their maker’s respective model line-ups.

We took them to some of our favourite Welsh B-roads to see how they fared in driving dynamics and examined the interiors and extensive kit to find out which takes the crown in the luxe-barge world.
