I'm going to assume that some cars have a primary catalytic converter with an additional one to further 'process' emissions - probably applicable to larger engine cars I'm guessing.

That, or V and boxer type engine configurations most probably also have two cats?

Now, I admit that there are two distinguishing features that you can use to tell apart the Audi sedans. One is LEDs. The A4 has roughly seven, while the A8 could guide damaged ships to the mainland.
