2020 AUDI RS Q8 – SUV or Supercar? – Features, Specs, Test Drive
The 2020 Audi RS Q8 features a biturbo V8 engine to deliver exhilarating performance and driving dynamics, setting a new standard as the prestigious spearhead of the RS model line. The RS Q8 recently became the fastest production SUV to lap the renowned Nürburgring racetrack with an official time of 7 minutes and 42.2 seconds.
The 4.0-liter V8 in the RS Q8 delivers an impressive 600 horsepower (441 kW) and 590 lb.-ft. (800 Nm) of torque. The turbocharged engine with direct injection accelerates the large SUV from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and achieves a top track speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) or 304 km/h (189 mph) when equipped with the RS ceramic brakes.
The power of the 4.0 TFSI flows to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system via the standard 8-speed Tiptronic transmission. Wheel-selective torque control can help enhance handling by ensuring additional traction across each axle through individual-wheel braking application. 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.
The Audi RS Q8 will arrive at dealerships in Germany and other European countries during the first quarter of 2020. The price list for the high-performance SUV coupe starts at €127,000.
The first RS-SUV from Audi in America, the Audi RS Q8 is expected to arrive in the U.S. in 2020.
