All New RS Q8 is Audi’s First RS SUV in U.S. Market
Audi RS Q8 combines the genes of a high-performance RS model with the practicality of an SUV and the dynamic design of an Audi coupe. Featuring a bi-turbo V8 engine to deliver exhilarating performance and driving dynamics, the RS Q8 sets a new standard as the prestigious spearhead of the RS model line. The range-topping performance SUV delivers an impressive 591 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, enought to accelerate the large SUV from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and achieve a top track speed of 155 mph, or 190 mph when equipped with the RS ceramic brakes. The RS Q8 is currently the fastest production SUV to lap the renowned Nürburgring racetrack with an official time of 7 minutes and 42.2 seconds. Wheel-selective torque control helps to improve the agile handling of the large-SUV by providing additional traction modifications across each axle. During dynamic cornering, the quattro sport rear differential distributes drive torque between the rear wheels as required. This active torque vectoring helps improve traction, stability and dynamics. Starting MSRP is $113,000.
