Audi RS Q8 Performance

DO YOU SPEAK NÜRBURGRING?

It’s the 12.94-mile, 73-turn, north course of the Nürburgring, considered one of the world’s most challenging racetracks. It’s also where the Audi RS Q8 was tested, tuned and dialed in, setting a 7:42.25 lap time, which, at that time, no other SUV could match.Info

  • Horsepower/Torque

    591 hp/590 lb-ft

  • Engine Type

    4.0-liter TFSI® 
twin-turbocharged V8

  • Drivetrain

    quattro® all-wheel drive

    with quattro® sport rear differential

  • Acceleration

    0-60 mph in 3.7 sec.Info

Active roll stabilization

Electric motors integrated into the front and rear stabilizer bars can help counter body lean during cornering by increasing roll stiffness, giving the Audi RS Q8 a feeling of stability through the turn.

quattro® sport rear differential/all-wheel steering

With the ability to transfer power to the appropriate wheel while cornering, the quattro® sport rear differential helps the Audi RS Q8 power through a turn. The all-wheel steering system can turn the rear wheels to help reduce the turning radius to improve handling agility or help improve stability at highway speeds.

Ceramic brakes

Featuring 10-piston brake calipers painted in red, gray, or blue, this braking system features 17.3-inch front brake discs and 14.6-inch rear brake discs made from a ceramic-composite material that reduces un-sprung weight by up to 75 pounds and offer improved fade resistance. With the available ceramic brakes, the top speed of the Audi RS Q8 rises from 155 mph to 190 mph.Info

Audi drive select system + RS modes

With seven drive modes to choose from, including customizable, driver-specified RS modes, the Audi drive select system offers a range of steering, suspension and transmission shift programs to suit driving styles or road conditions.

Audi RS Q8 Exterior Design

AUTHORITY FIGURE.

Broad shoulders and wide fenders build a solid foundation—one enhanced by wide, high-performance tires. A prominent Singleframe® grille with the RS honeycomb grille pattern signifies its place atop the pecking order. Imposing. Purposeful. The kind of figure you look up to.

RS Q8 design elements

Unique to the Audi RS Q8 is an RS style, honeycomb-pattern grille and a resculpted front bumper. Along the top of the fenders are horizontal cutlines that evoke the memories of the original Quattro Coupe rally car. Beneath the rear taillights, grille elements are blended into recessed body lines. Oval exhaust outlets are specific to RS models.
